Sexorcism – a run down

Posted in Music, Uncategorized with tags , on March 31, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

So, the new album artwork and title as well as the tracklisting has finally been revealed! Well it’s some time ago now since I wrote this entry, of course, but nonetheless, it’s that joyous time again when things are happening in the Lordicamp.

So. “Sexorcism” huh. Lordi is really following down the path from “Hug You Harcore”, aren’t they? I don’t know what to feel about it. On the one hand, it’s all the same to me. It’s just a title. But on the same time, being not the biggest fan of “Hug You Hardcore” it does make my eyeballs pop.

The artwork on the other hand… Again, well done on Mr L for completing yet another masterpiece, althought the feminist inside of me wants to scream and protest, I won’t. Because I guess this goes hand in hand with the title and potential theme of the album.

So, what about tracklists?

01 Sexorcism
02 Your Tongue’s Got The Cat
03 Romeo Ate Juliet
04 Naked In My Cellar
05 The Beast Is Yet To Cum
06 Polterchrist
07 SCG9: The Documented Phenomenon
08 Slashion Model Girls
09 Rimskin Assassin
10 Hell Has Room
11 Hot & Satanned
12 Sodomesticated Animal
13 Haunting Season

So yeah. This tracklist doesn’t… well. It goes hand in hand with the album title does it? I’m still a 100% concerned that this is just a 13 track long “Hug You Hardcore” kind of album.

Deep inside I wish and hope that “Romeo Ate Juliet” is in fact about a high school boy eating up his promdate, as I told Nathan some time ago. That “Haunting Season” is really about like, haunting peasants and killing them, and what not, they can still just as well be about Romeo eating Juliet out, and Haunting Season being about preying on well, partners.

“Your Tounge’s Got The Cat” is another one that has me in a twist. Cat as in Pussy, or just a very long tounged monster eating your little cat? Who the hell knows?

Maybe “The Beast Is Yet To Cum” is just about a beast arriving some place, like to his date with Belle, without any sexual undertones. However I’m meant to interpret “Rimskin Assassin” any other way than about anal fisting, I have no idea.

I feel like this era is threading on thin lines. It could be genius, pure gold, just as well as it could be a complete disaster. The titles could be exactly what they are told out to be, as well as be the exact opposite just to screw with us.

I guess we just have to wait, don’t we?

Beautiful Trauma

Posted in Uncategorized on March 20, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

Because of recent events, I have chose to not write any further blog entries about the stay in the United States.

I do not feel comfortable, writing about stuff done at this point, and I cannot think of a way to rewrite them in a better way. I’m sorry to all of you who looked forward hearing what I did, but this is just how it has to be done.

Next up will be about Lordi’s new costumes.

New costumes – new era

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on March 20, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

Wow I have so much to catch up on. But rather start here and now, right?

Sooo, it’s those exciting times again in the Lordi cycle – the new era, the new costumes – the new album – everything! And first out, the costumes

So there you have it people! The new Lordi 2018!

And wow.  This was not at all what I expected, and I’d be lying if I denied that my eyes went first to Hella. Her game has sure as hell been sexed up, but she’s looking damn good doing it. If I hadn’t known that she has some say in her own costumes, I’d probably be burning up over it, but since she do – all kudos to her. And I’m beyond happy she’s back to blonde. FINALLY. And also. Is it her babies on her bra or what?

I like Amen’s new look. With the picture that’s been delivered you can’t see much detail just yet, but his mask must be one of the more evil ones he’s had. But then again, not a lot of improvement was needed considering “Monstereophonic” costume was his lowest one TO DATE.

The first thing that came to mind upon seeing Mana was Kita’s costume from Deadache era 2008. Like, they have the same barber. And his fangs look nice. Aside that, you can’t really see much of him with what is given.

Same kind of goes for Mr Lordi. I am totally digging the skulls as well as the eyeball necklace, and the mask is looking damn good – but too covered.

Now, OX… Maybe I’m just wearing off the first crush or something, but this is by far the best costume OX has had. He’s looking absolutely terrifying, like the devil himself was reincarnated into a hellbull and put in a band in Finland. It’s been some time since I felt intimidate by someone in this band… But now I am. Well done!

So. That’s the first impressions. Lets now await the close ups for a more, broken down, look at the costumes
