Lord of the Lost was  founded in 2007 in Hamburg by multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, vocalist Chris Harms.

Chris has been involved in music since childhood, and from the age of 12 he participated in various bands. Of those bands in which Harms took part at a more conscious age, it is worth remembering Philiae, in which Chris played from 1999 to 2004, The Pleasures (2004-2007) and UnterArt (2006-2008). All these projects in their own way influenced the solo project of Chris, succinctly called Lord. Soon, however, the name had to be changed to Lord of the Lost to avoid confusion with The Lords and Lordi.

In 2009, the first single «Dry the Rain» was released and a little later, in 2010, the first full-length album «Fears» saw the light, released on Out of Line Records. By that time, Chris found musicians and the solo studio project turned into a full-fledged band, with which Harms began to actively tour international festival venues such as WGT, Wacken Open Air and M'era Luna.

The very next year, the band released their second album, «Antagony», and went on tour with Mono Inc. in support of their album «Viva Hades». Actively continuing the studio work, Lord of the Lost in the summer of 2012 presents the third full-length release «Die Tomorrow», on which Alex Wesselsky (Eisbrecher, ex-Megaherz), Erk Aicrag (Hocico, Rabia Sorda), Ulrike Goldmann (Blutengel) took part as guests.

2013 was marked by several headlining tours and the release of the first live album «We give our hearts - Live Auf St. Pauli». And in 2014, the band released, perhaps, their heaviest album at that time, «From the Flame into the Fire». In February of the same year, drummer Christian Schellhorn left the band, and already in March, Lord of the Lost went on their first US tour, which was made possible thanks to fans who managed to raise more than $12,000 on a crowdfunding platform.

In 2015, the first acoustic album, «Swan Songs», was released, which marked the beginning of a whole series of such releases. In the same year, the band released the EP «Full Metal Whore» with one of the most "metal" tracks in the history of the band. The tour in support of the EP was held under the slogan "Make Love Make War", and Darkhaus, Eye Shut Tight, Vlad in Tears and Erdling were invited as guests. At the end of the year, the band's second live album was released, as well as the DVD «A Night to Remember - Live Acoustic in Hamburg».

Six months later, in the summer of 2016, the next «Empyrean» album is released, followed by a tour with Combichrist, Filter and Rabia Sorda. That same year, guitarist Bo Six left the band for "personal and professional reasons" and was replaced by Pi Stoffers. A year later drummer Tobias Mertens left the band and was soon replaced by Niklas Kahl, former member of Stahlmann and co-founder of Erdling.

In 2017 Lord of the Lost supported KMFDM on a tour of England. The band was supposed to go on an American tour with KMFDM, moreover, Chris and Pi were supposed to play guitars in KMFDM during this tour, but there were problems with visas, and LOTL did not get to the USA at that time.

But in 2017, the band continued their acoustic direction with the album «Swan Songs II», and in 2018 they released the album "Thornstar", in which Dero from Oomph! took part. By the way, these were the first releases on Napalm Records, a new label for the band. All subsequent Lord of the Lost releases to date are on the same label. Among them are the acoustic "Swan Songs III" and "Swan Symphonies III", released in 2020, and the concept double-album «Judas», which the band recorded during the pandemic and released in 2021, as well as the DVD "The Sacrament of Judas".

The band is currently working on a new album for a 2023 release.
