Monsterman movie shows only one half of the truth
September 27, 2014
MONSTERMAN, the documentary film about Lordi through Mr L's life had its world-premiere last night in Finnish cinemas.

The documentary film is good and professional movie, but it only shows one half of the truth. The director decided to focus on all the negative things that happened to Lordi in the past few years. All the good stuff was left out. And as the name of the movie tells, the focus was on Mr L and his life, not on Lordi and their lives.

The movie also tells untruthful info about Mr L. The film gives off the impression that he felt bullied as a kid which isn't the case. The film also gives off the impression that he makes the decisions about Lordi with his family and friends. In real life all the decisions are made by the band and nobody else. The film just leaves that out. The director wanted scenes of Mr L with his mother which he felt awkward as he does never consult his mother regarding the band.

The band gave all their video material of Lordi's history, videos from tour, writing sessions, recording sessions, photo sessions, backstages, etc. Any of these was not used in the film.

The director also decided to include a scene where we can clearly see one ex-member unmasked though Lordi's stance has always been and will always be that any previous or current member of the band can not be seen unmasked in the context of the band.

The movie is not what the band wanted it to be. Lordi boycotted the premiere and they didn't show up in the premiere party in Rovaniemi.

However, the director Antti Haase has stated that he tried to respect Lordi as a band and Mr L as an artist while making the movie and stands behind his film.

Previous SFO news: April Fools Prank!
April 2, 2014
Yes, the previous news about SFO's fruity title, cover and tracklist, and release date was our annual April Fools prank! In this case it can be counted as a joke as well. And no, the cover artwork was not from Mr Lordi's hands, it was all done by Monsterknight. Because it's not the real cover. Someones might noticed that the lied release date June 31 won't come. And the masks are still TBONTB.

...Did you notice where the song titles were taken?
01. SCG VII: SFO = any SCG
02. Blackberry in the Hole = Fire in the Hole
03. My Mango is Your Apple = My Heaven is Your Hell
04. Not the Nicest Lemon = Not the Nicest Guy
05. Blood Red Orange = Blood Red Sandman
06. The Strawberry Buffet = The Chainsaw Buffet
07. Playing with Banana [Hella's solo] = Playing the Devil
08. Man Skin Fruit = Man Skin Boots
09. Give Your Life for Grapes and Lime = Give Your Life for Rock and Roll
10. I Luv Kiwi = I Luv Ugly
11. Get Healthy = Get Heavy
12. Soft Pear Hallelujah = Hard Rock Hallelujah
13. We're Not Bad for the Teeth (We're Good) = We're Not Bad for the Kids (We're Worse)
14. The Night of the Watermelon = The Night of the Loving Dead

For sure all followers of Monsterboard found something familiar in the news; The fruit theme was inspired by old discuss on Monsterboard when someone came up with "Sweet Fruity Oranges" and people started to do these kind of songfruits as the track list for the album (Lordi songs where some words got replaced by fruits). Also our Facebook followers started to write more fruit songs. "Special bonus track for unhealthy Americans: Fruitcakes Keep Me Company". You can read them all here. Also check out lyrics for "I Luv Kiwi"!

So yes, the name and everything about SFO still remains secret. At the moment the band is writing songs and recording demos for the album.

April 1, 2014

The monsters have found the taste of fruits, and we can truly see that it has been a huge inspiration for the title, for the songs, and for the cover artwork of this album! Seems we will get even more happy and cheerful album than the last party album BFB!

Track list:
01. SCG VII: SFO
02. Blackberry in the Hole
03. My Mango is Your Apple
04. Not the Nicest Lemon
05. Blood Red Orange
06. The Strawberry Buffet
07. Playing with Banana [Hella's solo]

09. Give Your Life for Grapes and Lime
10. I Luv Kiwi
11. Get Healthy
12. Soft Pear Hallelujah
13. We're Not Bad for the Teeth (We're Good)
14. The Night of the Watermelon
