Lordi – The Arockalypse

lordi_032707_rockThey look like Gwar, yet lack all the clever lyrical concepts and powerful musical ideas/twists that make Gwar the mighty powerhouse they’ve always been. Lordi are a metal based rock-n-roll band from Finland that lack the character in the verse/chorus/verse/chorus nature of their songs. They lack meaningful hooks. They lack a charismatic frontman vocally. Everything about this band is like butter on white bread… devoid of flavor. So yeah… they put on the kooky horror suits and try to sail their way into the media with a gimmick. Too bad it already worked for Kiss and Gwar, so all the shock and flash has been played out, making Lordi the Green Jello of the metal world… a tired/embarassing spectacle, with nothing solid musically speaking to back it up. “The Rockalypse” features 15 completely boring, unspectacular rock songs that make Rob Zombie sound like he was influenced by Athiest. This band is a very puzzling/bad choice for The End. – Marty
