The prettiest band on the planet, LORDI, is a ultimate five-monster line-up whose bold and shameless combination of melodic heavy rock with the outrageous horror image has caught the attention of the rock media and genre fans all around the world. Lordi might come from Finland but their artistic mind is focused in big
American Monsterican style, becoming one of the best known Finnish bands.
Over twenty years after the formation Lordi is still rocking loud monster-gigs allover the world and staying loyal to their sound and image by releasing full albums of catchy riffs and choruses while keeping their real identities secret through the years.
Once you get into Lordi's world of Horrifiction you'll know at least one thing - monsters have more fun!
