They’re back everyone! My favourite Finnish monsters have risen once again!
I didn’t think it was going to happen this soon, but the announcement kind of caught me off guard. I used to always be engaged with what they were up to, but now I think to myself; hmm I really should get back into Lordi.
When Scare Force One was released, I remember listening to it once, and then I got sidetracked with other bands and hobbies that came up. I still loved Lordi through it all, maybe I wasn’t turned on to the album when I first listened to it, whereas with TBONTB I listened to it several times and it grew on me! As some people say: Times change, and well hey I’m still a Monstermaniac in my heart.
I know I’ve been so quiet about them lately and that’s because I was spending too much time a few years back, worrying about what other fans had accomplished such as meeting them for the first or tenth time. What I should have done was focus on myself as a fan, and not let my envy of those overseas bring me down.
That’s exactly what I’m going to do now that I hope to give their new album the time to grow on me. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate Scare Force One; I just got distracted before I could listen to it again to let it grow on me.
|Aren’t they beautiful?|
I love how Hella has gone back to her blonde hair with half of her face more deformed than the other. Mana has got his long hair again and I never noticed that spider on his chest until fellow fans started pointing it out. OX and Amen both look badass, and I love how Mr. Lordi went with all the studs this time, plus bigger spikes. I think I like his costume better than the way it was in the SFO era.

Two SCGs in one Lordi album, how interesting is that? Hug You Hardcore reminds me of Evilove; one of my favourite bonus tracks from The Arockalypse album. I don’t know who Mary is, but it’s like Missing Miss Charlene almost; there’s always a song by Lordi once in a while that tells a story about a girl. From what I’ve been told, it’s part concept album, sounds promising enough I’d say.
Well, hopefully this time I let this album grow on me, in the mean time while I wait, I should probably give Scare Force One another listen. My God, both Lordi and Sabaton have new music coming out this year, things just keep getting better!
