OK, instead of everyone saying, "Oh didn't they do well at Eurovision, I'd like to open up a proper Lordi thread. I consider them power metal but apparently that aint true metal so I decided to put it in here. Feel free to move it if you feel the need to.

All Lordi stuff here.

To start it off, in actual video to Hard Rock Hallelujah, am I the only one who thinks the girl is pretty hot?

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Wow, that's cheesy. Sorry, first I've heard of them, but a mate had Lordi as his MSN screen name, so I thought I'd check this out.

That's really **** if you ask me, how did they do at Eurovision?

It's cheesy...

In a way it reminds me of GWAR.

But I do like their songs. I like them more than Dragonforce, for sure.

Buddy showed me a pic of them unmasked and said there's 3 Children of Bodom members in Lordi. True?

yeah, because ALL Scandinavian metal sounds like Nightwish.
you mean you dont like operatic metal. Lordi sound nothing like that, nor do 90% of the bands i can name from Scandinavia. try not to generalise so much, you only end up looking ignorant.

i dont know why people keep referring to Lordi as a metal band anyway, they're shock rock (israels son: might have something to do with why they remind you of Alice Cooper). bar one or two moments, there's nothing metal about them. and whoever referred to them as power metal is more ignorant than Glen_Hansard.

How can people call them "Power Metal"????

Dragon Force are Power Metal, Lordi are a commercial fad however....they have shown that people do appreciate rock anthems far more than a cheesy pop song and therefore deserve alittle respect!!

No. The Daily Mail did that as a scam. It isn't true.

Extract from Lordi's Wiki page:

On May 22, 2006, the Daily Mail published what was believed to be an old picture of the band without their makeup or masks. It was later revealed that the band in the photo was actually Children of Bodom, a different band altogether. This was acknowledged on Children of Bodom's official website.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

I thought it was cool that Lordi won Eurovision because I couldn't stand any of the pop songs the other contestants performed. Orc metal isn't quite my thing though.

^ i agree she's quite nice, plus that song is the ****ing nuts, the devil is my bitch i think it is brilliant it put me in stiches plus i think, musicaly they are pretty good, they write simple but catchy songs that just attract you, they kinda remind me of paul gilbert in the ways of pop rock writing, just with out the crazy alternative picking (and Senor Pablo Gilberto has written some pretty cheesy **** in his time, but still very tasteful). but yea, good luck to them i say, we need somthing different in the rock section, plus they don't sound so ****ing depressing like all theses other bands you hear on mtv or the other music channels

I respect them for being catchy. All metal groups are cheesy, get over it. I can't listen to Iron Maiden without cracking up.

that song they sounded like it coulda bin a bon jovi song....

Yeah, I've been saying that since Eurovision... although, more often I'd compare them to Def Leppard. Give em some credit. It's the breakdown that does it though... very definitely.
