Road to Liverpool: Germany

We can not wait for the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. Therefore, we have a closer look at one of the contestants every day. Today: Germany.

Lord of the Lost

Industrial metal band Lord of the lost will represent Germany. The song they have for this occasion is “Blood & glitter”. The song is written by band members Chris ‘Lord’ Harms and Pi Stoffers. they did this along with Anthony J. Brown and Rupert Keplinger. The song could be described as gothic metal. 

Lord of the Lost is a five man band, lead by Chris Harms, aka Lord. The band was founded in 2007. Almost all their albums were chart successes in Germany, the last four also in Austria. Popular songs of the band were, among others, “Loreley“, “Raining stars“, “Morgana” and “Six feet underground“. Their most recent album, “Blood & glitter”, reached the number 1 spot in the album charts in Germany.

Unser Lied für Liverpool

The German song was chosen out of eight entries. Lord of The Lost won with a landslide among the televoters, while the juries chose another song. Germany does not have a tradition of national finals. The last few years they sometimes have one, sometimes not. Last year, the song was chosen via a national final (Germany 12 points), the same system they used this year. However, the contest had another name: Unser Lied für Liverpool (Our song for Liverpool).

Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest

Germany has never skipped any Eurovision Song Contest. Only in 1996, they didn’t manage to survive the audio preselection. Singer Leon couldn’t perform his song “Blauer Planet” at the Eurovision stage. Two times, there was a victory for Germany: in 1982 it was Nicole who won with “Ein bißchen Frieden”, in 2010 we saw Lena winning with “Sattelite”. Germany could be found among the lowest placed countries the last few years.

Bookmakers

The Germans currently are in 20th place at the bookmakers. A result like that would be disappointing. A German entry will be found at the bottom of the list again. Still they can surprise us. The bookmakers are not always right.

The song

And of course, we have the song itself for you. Here it is:
