The Finnish hard rock / melodic heavy metal band Lordi was originally formed in 1992 by the band's lead singer, songwriter, visual artist and costume maker, Mr Lordi. Lordi took part in the Eurovision song contest and won the whole competition as the first and only winner from Finland, with all-time record breaking points at the time. The third album The Arockalypse was released within the same time frame, with the band´s own idols Udo Dirkschneider (Accept, U.D.O.), Bruce Kulick (ex-KISS), Dee Snider and Jay Jay French (Twisted Sister) appearing as guest stars. The success of the victorious single "Hard Rock Hallelujah" launched Lordi to new heights of media exposure, fan recognition and success, that opened new doors for the band. The band has been touring actively since 2002 and it´s known for the monstrous look and the horror elements in the stage performance and music videos. With catchy songs and screaming riffs, the horrific lyrics will stick in your mind whether you like it or not. Entering a new era, Lordi released their 9th studio album ”Sexorcism”, which is said to be their most controversial album to date, in summer 2018- being an uncensored shot with a full on in-your-face attitude that is Lordi’s brand. "Sexorcism" was recorded and mixed at the legendary Finnvox studios by Mikko Karmila, who is no stranger to the band being the producer of the band's 2014 release ”Scare Force One”.
