Finnish monster metal band Lordi has released their latest album, Babez for Breakfast. I’ll give you a few minutes to put your socks back on. I know I just rocked them off.
You back? Good, because you need to look at this album cover:
Seriously. Look at that. That is metal. I don’t care whether or not you like Lordi (that’s a damned lie), but you absolutely must admit that the above is practically all of heavy metal distilled into one obscene work. We’re missing a battle axe and bat wings, but MR. LORDI WILL OBLIGE YOU IN THIS RESPECT!
The actual content of the album is great as well. It’s standard Lordi fare, which means your face will be melted in a cacophony of gravely Lordi vocals, terrifying guitar noodles (“Amen” is Finnish for “fucking pasta making machine”), heavy thematic organ/synth, mad bass lines and what I believe is the actual murder of several drum sets.
The lyrics are standard Lordi fare as well, which is to say that they are the kind of thing that, if seen on paper, may seem ridiculous and only loosely based on the English language, but when belched and ground out by Mr. Lordi’s epic monster mouth are nothing less than chilling.
Also, as is tradition, Mr. Lordi made new makeup and gear for the band for this album’s release.
