What would happen if our favourite horror film characters Freddie Krugger, Michael Myers (Halloween) and Jason (Friday 13th) took a break from their hectic killing spree's, put down their weapons of murder, had a few beers and picked up musical instruments?
Answer = LORDI
Lordi are the new crazies on the block, looking they have escaped from the cast of an Evil Dead movie and sounding like a cross between KISS and Rob Zombie this is the most fun you can have without incurring a lengthy sentence in prison. Lordi hail from Finland, Lapland Finland in fact, The home of Father Christmas who is rumoured to have moved since Lordi set up shop!
The Monster Show is a real Heavy Metal album, capital H, capital M, Heavy Metal, got that? The song writing is laden with anthemic choruses, huge hooks, big riffs and a sound that Metallica lost after the Black album, cue lawsuit from Lars Ulrich once he finds out.
Lordi are a household name in their native Finland with over 50,000 sales and a #1 single with "Would you love a Monsterman"from their debut album "Get Heavy" released in 2002. Lordi have re discovered the lost formula for heavy metal mainstream success that made platinum artists of previous masters of metal such as Twisted Sister, WASP & Iron Maiden.
