But it is not only classical music in the romantic style; it also hints of modernism like the masters Stravinsky, Francis Poulenc and Arthur Honegger. Occasionaly it even draws near completely different genres, such as jazz, popular and folk music. Lost Kingdom was formed in Uppsala, Sweden in year 2000, as the two brothers Tjernberg found they had material that didn't seem to fit their main symphonic band at the time. They started to record it in Goatman Studios. The response they got from the song In Heaven, featured on Radio Rivendell Compilation (2007), propelled them another level and soon also a contract with Waerloga Records.
As fans begun to gather around the act the work on the debut album soon became one hell of a journey in the field of perfectionism. As The New Dawn Awakes was released April 1st 2008 and holds a total of ten neoclassical pieces. It is thematical centered on the lapse of a day (from morning to noon) and consists entirely of orchestrated pieces in the romantic classical school.
