Hell Stole My Baby

Well, they’re back! New look and new music, I couldn’t be more pumped. Any new music is enough to make almost drop everything to hear what it is.

I woke up bright an early to buy the new single released before catching the bus this morning and listened during my commute.

Over the past few days, Lordi was posting teaser photos of the single’s cover, but after the bottom part, I already knew which song it was going to be:

Your Tongue’s Got the Cat. The first thing I can think of is that idiom inspired by this. The cover for the single: great art as usual, kind of freaky too, I almost cannot tell what’s got what here. No, even as a cat lover I do not take offense to this hahaha!
So, I’ll talk about the song first. It is certainly catchy and is already something I want to belt out if I hear it live. The guitar riff and keyboards are awesome and Mr. Lordi’s vocals are always on point. Now that I think about it, I may have misjudged, because all of us were worried that whatever single was going to be released: was going to be full of a lot of sexual lyrics similar to HYH since this what the track list clearly indicated. I guess we were wrong. The lyrics have nothing to do with it, the story it tells, is like your typical horrific story with some love in there, something to do with eating a cat? But in a sense, it has a Deadache vibe to it. Who listened to this and was reminded of Missing Miss Charlene? I know I’m not alone, but either way, this is a great song.

I wasn’t going to talk about the video since it’s a lyric video and there’s not much to it. Had it been an actual music video, that would be different. I don’t know if there’s going to be one for this song, or another single, but hey, lyric videos are great too so why not talk about it? It’s beautifully done with lots of pictures of the band members to melt over, and Mr. Lordi’s drawings don’t even need to be graded by me anymore, because he always does a fantastic job. I hope the pictures of the members are posted individually later. I would love to steal a few of them for cover photos!

Over all, great song, art, and video, I can’t wait for more. I’ve been listening to this all day.
