Lordi is two parts parody and four parts tribute. They’re great. The story goes:
Lordi is a hard rock/heavy metal band from Rovaniemi, Finland. The concept for Lordi was devised in 1992, however, the band was not formed until 1996 by Tomi Putaansuu (known as “Mr. Lordi”) of Rovaniemi, Finland. Members of Lordi are noted for their elaborate monster-like costumes seen during live shows and in music videos. Lordi are also known as “The Finnish Monsters” and “The Monsters of Finland”
I discovered the band while surfing the YouTube. They’re all I’ve been listening to for the last couple of days. You may find it total crap, but can you argue with ‘Hardrock Hallelujah’?
