November 26, 2021 seen Finnish monster rockers LORDI release seven ( repeat: Seven!) albums at one go. The band, who achieved their international breakthrough with their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest (“Hard Rock Hallelujah”) in 2006, is the first in music history to release a whopping seven studio albums in one lavish swoop, entitled “Lordiversity”. All of the seven records have been released as physical formats back in November via AFM Records, while the digital releases were made available at different, ensuing dates. Finally the entire, digital glory of “Lordiversity” is out now and available HERE!
But let’s go back to the monsters‘ latest, 2020- studio record, “Killection“, which is a compilation album that imagines that LORDI has existed since the early 70’s. It delivers all the hit singles from the different decades and as they would have sounded if LORDI had made music at that time. The accompanying, fictional back catalogue has been released in the form of “Lordiversity” – two years after its Best Of and simply from beyond time and space! Each album was recorded according to its era of origin using its various approaches and instruments in order to come as close as possible to the sound.
Watch a brand new video for the track ‘Demon Supreme’ – released just last week and taken from the fifth “Lordiversity” album “Spooky Sextravaganza” – here:
Mr. Lordi explains: “In the week of March 2020, after our tour had to be cancelled due to Corona, I thought that I must use the extra time that was available to me. It quickly became clear that the time was perfect to start planning another album, even though “Killection” wasn’t even three months old at the time. But then I realised that there couldn’t be anything more boring than making another regular LORDI album. I really enjoyed writing, recording and producing the different styles for “Killection”, but the idea of simply composing a second part of it also struck me as extremely boring. And since “Killection” is a fictional album based on a previously non-existent, fictional back catalogue of music, I had an idea: The only thing that could top “Killection” would be to record and publish the back catalogue.”
“Superflytrap”, “Abusement Park”, “Humanimals”, “Abracadaver”, “Spooky Sextravaganza”, “Skeletric Dinosaur” ( digitally released earlier this week ) and finally “The Masterbeast” – the unique back catalogue of LORDI’s spectacular universe, is out now – available as CD, Vinyl and on all Digital platforms at THIS LOCATION!
