A little Christmas song


I hope you had a nice Christmas (if you celebrate it).

On that topic.
The week leading up to Christmas I decided to write a holiday tune just for fun.

One thing led to another and now it's up on Spotify.

This was never intended to become an official single. It's quite different. But who knows, maybe it will get you in a frosty mood. Enjoy.


Share it with a friend if you like it.

Let's talk more at the usual places.

Lacrimosa on the Cover of the Sonic Seducer Magazine

A must for Lacrimosa fans: The new Sonic Seducer 11/21 with co-title + exclusive remix

While Feuerschanz adorn our main title, Lacrimosa can be seen on the cover of the CD supplement and our XXL "The Divine Art" calendar. In the magazine there is an exciting story in which Tilo Wolff introduces the new album "Leidenschaft" extensively. You will also find an exclusive "Raubtier (Predator)" version on the CD!

"Leidenschaft (Passion)" – Lacrimosa could hardly have titled their new, 14th album better. In the 30th year of its existence, the duo presents a work that can definitely be described as the highlight of their work. In addition to the interview with Tilo Wolf, we have an exclusive song on our CD supplement with "Raubtier (Grazioso)".


Orkus!-"Clip of the Night": LACRIMOSA – "Raubtier"

The first delicious treat of the new Lacrimosa album "Leidenschaft (Passion)" on 24.12.2021 is the wonderful video clip for "Raubtier". A song as a desperate dialogue between animal desire, desirous heart and knowing mind.

‘Is This The End’ is released


Today is the day.

‘Is This The End’ is released.

I have no idea what reactions to expect. This is unexplored territory and without any filters. It’s the first time where I don’t have a band to “hide” behind.

Let’s see how it goes.
If it is well-received, then this will not be the end.

Check it out on SPOTIFY or get it on iTUNES.

Is This The End



It's been a while.
I hope you are doing great.

The stars have guided me onto an unexpected parallel path that I never thought I’d walk along.

On November 26 I will be releasing the first single under my own name. It’s quite different compared to my existing discography. At the same time it makes a lot of sense. My past musical adventures are blending together and it feels very natural to me. I have no label for this style. But it’s authentic and honest. You will hear undeniable influences from both Lacrimosa and Evil Masquerade. Two bands that have been a huge part of my life over the last couple of decades. But there are also influences from other artists that I have appreciated for most of my life such as Bowie, ABBA and many more.

The upcoming single is titled ‘Is This The End’.
I will not elaborate on the story and instead leave that pleasure for others to indulge in.

The artwork is done by the lovely Maria Schatten from Novosibirsk, Russia.

Just to put any rumours to rest; This is just an addition to what I'm already involved in. Not a replacement.

Much more to come very soon.

Lacrimosa in the Side-Line Magazine

Photo by

ast month we informed you that worldwide paper shortage would delay the release of the new Lacrimosa album. However, some good news reached us from the Swiss label Hall of Sermon a few moments ago and that is that the new studio album by Lacrimosa will still be released this year.

Shortage of paper was not the only (last) hurdle to get the album ready on time, because also the production process took quite some time and organization to make it happen.

Says the band: “Originally, the album was supposed to be finished and released a little earlier, but due to the restrictions of the last few months, a lot of work had to be postponed and plans had to be changed. Digital networking makes a lot possible, but some production steps, such as orchestral recordings, can ultimately only be carried by all musicians coming together in one recording hall, playing together. But now the work is done and completed and the long awaited album comes out still in 2021!”

After their worldwide live-streaming show from the ISS Dome Düsseldorf for their 30th anniversary, the band is now ready to launch their new studio album this year. More information will follow shortly!

New Album 2021

The new album, which is scheduled for release in 2021, was officially announced by Tilo, along with the presentation of one new Song, at the concert in Klaffenbach.


Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ultimate Lacrimosa week!


We have great news, this is going to be the ultimate Lacrimosa week!

And on Saturday we invite the whole world to Klaffenbach to watch our open air concert - which will be one of only two Lacrimosa concerts in 2021 - at home on your screen!

Good Bye streaming services

For various reasons we will be removing our songs and albums from the digital streaming services these days. But don't worry, in a while – although I don't know exactly when – our music will be back on some of these platforms.
In the meantime you can dust off your CDs and LPs again and also watch the beautiful booklets, I personally still enjoy this visual and haptic experience of a sound carrier.
But anyone who wants to buy physical CDs from us will no longer find them in stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, as well as in many online shops in the foreseeable future. We have to restructure a lot right now over here!
But here's the good news: Our own shop is not affected! Most of the music is still available here! You can find the link to our shop in the bio!

Judas … feat. Lacrimosa

Release Date Jul 2, 2021



Wooden Box strictly limited to 1500 units including:

*Judas Mediabook 2-CD
*CD "The Sorrows of the Young" in Carboard Sleeve
*2-CD LOTL+ in Digisleeve
*DVD "Becoming JUDAS" in Cardboard sleeve FSK 12
*Cover Alu Print

"German genrefluid visionaries LORD OF THE LOST return with their seventh studio album, JUDAS (out July 2nd, 2021 via Napalm Records). With this sophisticated offering, conceptualized as a double record from the very beginning, the five-piece are cementing their position as exceptional artists that can’t be pigeonholed once more and have undeniably reached the next level with their most innovative and mature record to date. Not only the sound is massive, but LORD OF THE LOSTimpressively deliver JUDAS physically as well: The album will be available as a limited deluxe box, earbook, 2-CD mediabook, 2-CD sleevepack, 2 x 2 LP gatefold recycled vinyl, double music cassette as well as digital version. JUDAS sets off with atmospheric “Priest”, which immediately unveils a leitmotif that runs through the whole record and serves as a uniting symbiosis for the double album, divided in two conceptual parts, Damnation and Salvation, with 24 songs in total. Followed by “For They Know Not What They Do”, it’s clear right from the beginning that all the songs can be experienced the most organic and vivid way: A genuine, unique choir is accompanying singer Chris Harms, whose multi-dimensional voice delivers the haunting lyrics straight into the listener’s mind more strongly than ever. Songs like “Your Star Has Led You Astray” or “Born With a Broken Heart” easily manage to keep the balance between harsh vocals, the distorted sound of fuzz guitars and an overall dark atmosphere that LORD OF THE LOST is known for, whilst “Death Is Just a Kiss Away”, “My Constellation” and closing “Work of Salvation”, for example, put grand piano tunes, authentic strings as well as the sound of a massive organ recorded in a church in the most suitable focus. As the overall topic, LORD OF THE LOST detail the perception of the character of Judas Iscariot, known as highly diverse, and the so-called Gospel of Judas, a paper that's said to consist of conversations between Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot and casts a different light on religious history as it's told in the Bible's New Testament. JUDAS marks the successor of chart-breaking Thornstar (2018, #6 GER) and again breathes the innovative spirit of five musicians who are far away from setting boundaries to their very own and unique art. LORD OF THE LOST has never been that type of creative force that’s pinned to any specific genre and has succeeded in surprising fans and critics with their nonconformism repeatedly over the years. With their new album JUDAS, LORD OF THE LOST not only manage to thematically blur the lines between good and evil and put the so called “salvific treason” into a harmonious soundscape unlike ever heard before, they also demonstrate that they have matured both musically and lyrically - truly an opus magnum!

LORD OF THE LOST have a title on their new album that they have sent to many artists in a purely instrumental version, with the aim of having them record their own lyrics and melodies without knowing the original. The result are 32 different songs, all based on the same basic structure. A great song experiment that we were happy to take part in. Here you can hear a compilation of all versions:

Wave Gotic Treffen 2021 (Update)

Dear friends of the WGT,

First of all we would like to thank you for your solidarity and your loyalty, which together have brought us wonderful events within the framework of the WGT over the many years. Our special thanks go to all those who have stood by us in these uncertain times. First and foremost, of course, it is you, our guests, who have bought and held tickets with confidence, but it is also our artists and our partners, with whom we have been working successfully for years. The "culturelessness" of these times affects us as people to the same extent as it affects you. As guests, we have also taken part in numerous events, exhibitions etc. every year and gained a lot of joy from them. We are all missing this now. We can only too well understand how you must feel, as it is simply no different for us.
In the last weeks and months we have worked out different concepts to realise a WGT in an appropriate framework. We have also tried to make these concepts feasible under the constantly changing conditions. This required, among other things, the planning of different venues that deviated from the classic WGT locations, which had to be provided with completely different admission-, hygiene- and security-concepts. We deliberately did not go public with the various considerations, as the half-life of the legislative statements did not provide a serious basis for this.
Now, since the end of this week, it looks as if all cultural events, of whatever size and orientation, and for us in particular of course the WGT, are prohibited. Of course, we are still keeping open the option of holding an event at Whitsun, of whatever kind. However, it is also likely that the framework conditions will not correspond to those of a traditional WGT. Therefore, in the case of such a potential event, the entrance tickets already purchased for the WGT would not apply, i.e. they would retain their value for the following year. Of course, in such a case everyone is free to make use of their right of return. As soon as there are reliable current developments regarding a possible meeting at Pentecost 2021, we will inform you. We, and we think we can speak for many Leipzigers as well, miss you very much and look forward to seeing you again as soon as possible! Until then, we wish you, your families and your friends much strength and confidence!

Yours Treffen & Festspielgesellschaft

I hope life treats you well.

Many have asked for the English lyrics for the new 'Revolution' single.

Now you can find what you are looking for RIGHT HERE.
At the moment I'm working on the next single.

It's a really sad tune that is closely related to the topic of the latest release.

I'm trying my best to encapsulate some crushing thoughts and emotions within this piece of music.

If it turns out as I hope, I would like to invite you to be part of a new idea. Let's see how it goes.
