LORDI: Neues Album und neue Tour 2020

Veröffentlicht am 25.10.2019 um 08:00 Uhr

Die Monsterrocker von LORDI aus Finnland haben sich für ihr Jubiläumsalbum mit der Nummer 10 etwas ganz Besonders ausgedacht: Statt wie sonst einfach ins Studio zu gehen und ein Album aufzunehmen ist die Band das Jahr 2019 über durch verschiedene Studios in ganz Finnland getingelt und hat in jedem Studio eine handvoll Songs mit jeweils anderen Aufnahmetechniken aus verschiedenen Epochen eingespielt und mischen lassen. So entstand ein Gesamtkunstwerk das ein fiktives Best-Of-Album der Band darstellen soll, wenn es sie schon seit den 70er Jahren gegeben hätte. Herauskommen wird das Ganze dann am 31. Januar 2019 bei AFM Records unter dem Namen "Killection" und anschließend wird die Band noch eine ausgedehnte Europatour unter dem Namen "Killectour 2020" bestreiten. Natürlich wie immer mit neuem Outfit, neuen Tricks im Gepäck und diesesmal auch mit einem neuen Bassisten mit Namen "Hiisi". Der bei den Aufnahmen zum neuen Album bereits sein Studiodebüt mit der Band geben konnte. Weiteres dazu in der Pressemeldung von AFM auf Englisch:

"AFM Records are extremely excited to announce the new album “Killection” from the acclaimed Finnish Hard Rock/Heavy Metal monsters Lordi

“Killection” will hit the streets 31st of January 2020!

No doubt, “Killection" the tenth album in the band’s history, has turned out to be the most extraordinary and most varied album so far.

Officially the Rock/Heavy Metal monsters LORDI were founded in 1992 by lead singer, songwriter, visual art designer and costume designer Mr. Lordi. The band has deep Finnish roots, originating from the city of Rovaniemi, in Lapland. In 2006 they celebrated their international breakthrough by winning the Eurovision Song Contest (“Hard Rock Hallelujah”).

But is it possible that this is only a pale misperception of our poor, small, pathetic reality?

What if LORDI would have already been making music since the early 70's? And what if they have been releasing one hit single after the other since those times and now, almost 50 years later, are looking back on a full collection of songs that have been successful ever since?

This is exactly the idea that LORDI are executing, with their newest studio album “Killection.” Killection will be released on January 31st via AFM Records. Once more Mr. Lordi, the master of the masquerade, presents us with one of his ideas, absurd and genius at the same time, and comes up with a concept that has never been done before in the music industry: "Killection" is a compilation album that simply says “what if” LORDI had been in existence since the early 70's. It contains all their imaginary hit singles from different periods done with painstaking attention to detail using authentic studios and vintage technology. This is how they would have sounded if LORDI would have made music back then and therefore would have had the hit material to release this compilation now.

This is how Mr. Lordi himself sums it up:

"Killection" is a fictional compilation album. It contains songs that LORDI would have written between the early 70's through the mid-90's. The compilation contains one "brand new" song from 2019 as well, cause that’s somehow always typical for compilations."
