Lord of the Lost band timeline

Lord of the Lost band is a German dark rock band from Hamburg. The band was created by singer and frontman Chris Harms.

lord of the lost bandLord of the Lost was founded in mid-2007 by Chris Harms as a solo project. While working on the initial songs and publishing them on MySpace, Harms received a lot of positive reception and realized that he would require a full band to play them live. He recruited other musicians from his friends in the Hamburg music scene to form the band and begin working on the
first album.

Harms originally called the project Lord, but changed the name of the band to Lord of the
Lost to avoid possible name disputes with Lordi and The Lords.

Before Lord of the Lost, Harms was a singer and guitarist of the rock band Philiae (1999-2004), a guitarist and second singer with the Glam-Metal-Band The Pleasures (2004-2007), as well as a musician on various projects like Big Boy or Unterart.
