LORDI wins the Eurovision

I just read about this on the Megadeth boards, it's unbelievable. For those of you that don't know who these guys are, see the pic below. Music-wise, they're nothing amazing, but they are pretty good anyway. They play 80s metal, which is very dear to my heart.
Anyway, yeah, they won, hell is freezing over as we speak, and the appocalypse can't be very far either. Hope the trend continues. We need more metal bands in the spotlight.

EDIT: Here's the clip of the performance.

FUCK OFF. THEY ARE GWAR. I have never seen a band look more like anything else ever before. That's ridiculous.

Shame they're so derivative, because they really did win.




Watched the video. Basically, it's GWAR... at the Eurovision. Without the slaves and the crazy sick lunacy... that is, GWAR without the good bits. Three-chord 80's metal.

This guy from Finland sent me a bunch of their songs...they fucking blow.

Ditto, but I am skeptical because of their apperance. I will search them on slsk when I am sober. They better be pretty good, dammit.

I listened to a few GWAR songs, and didn't like them. Something about that band just never appealed to me. Lordi, on the other hand, I really like. Though both bands wear over the top masks and costumes, I prefer Lordi, just because GWAR's costumes look dumb. They have a guy with a big ass bucket over his head. Silly.

Not to say that Lordi should be taken very seriously, either. Personally, I was never a fan of musicians who go to such great lengths to achieve a certain look. It's just pointless. If they spent as much time perfecting their craft as they did designing their costumes, their music would be good enough to stand on its own, without all the silly stuff. Goes for both bands. Still, silly imagery and costumes aside, Lordi appeals to me. It seems to be a thing of you either love 'em or you hate 'em. Oh well, different strokes for different folks, I guess.

EDIT: The article listed them as a death metal band. I'm surprised no one brought that up yet.

Hell Yeah lordi rocked that eurosong vision pop thing for sure!

My parents comments:

dad: (sigh) this is ridiculous
mom: people actually like this?
sister: HARD ROCK HALLEJULAH ! (gives me the horns)

LORDI OWNS

(and to think belgium spended 120.000 euros to get kate ryan there who didnt even get to the semi-finals)

You are so perfectly correct.

Unfortunately, the rest of the world does not share your finely honed artistic sensibilities. Those fucking peasants. When will they learn real men play in burlap sacks? (On frostbitten tundra, no less.)

P.S. Herman Li spends more on shampoo & conditioner than these guys do on latex.

Robbie Filth 2006-05-21 05:20

I think lordi deserved to win hands down.

Theoldman 2006-05-21 05:26

FINNS FUCKING RULE!!!! HEVILLÄ EI HÄVITÄ!! :beer: :beer:

Robbie Filth 2006-05-21 05:33

I've also seen Lordi live :beer:

brainsforbreakfast 2006-05-21 07:19

......so?

fatdanny 2006-05-21 07:36

Lordi look like gwar, but they don't sound like them.

It's cool that they won, maybe Eurovision will slowly become the Eurometal contest. I wouldn't be suprised if we see a few gimmicky rock bands next year.

I voted for Lithuania's "we are the winners of eurovision" because it was the most obvious piss-take ever. The bald guy's spastic dancing was amusung, and the guitar solo mimed on a violin.

Lordi are often referred to as 'that death metal band' at uni, practically no-one likes death metal here or has actually heard any, I let it slide because I can't be arsed to explain that it isn't DM, and no-one really cares anyway.

low-tech 2006-05-21 12:23

they actually look better than gwar, i was suprised when i heard one of their songs,sounded more hard rock than metal.

johnmansley 2006-05-21 13:43

It was a shit song. It just so happened to be that every other song was ridiculous Euro-pop so cheesy that Tesco have just found a new supplier for their Cheddar range.

Exactly, they are like hard rock pop garbage...I love many bands from Finland, but not these silly twats.

Dahmers Fridge 2006-05-21 15:17

I pissed myself silly watching these muppets! I was promised a chainsaw spurting blood but it never materialised :bawling:

Oooh how scary...they've been accused of satanism!! :eek: Oh no mummy!!! And the BBC described them as ...oh gawd.........ahem.......DEATH METAL!!!! :eek: Hahahahahahahaha-fucking-hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!


What is even funnier than Lodri appearing let alone winning is the people in the press who claim other songs were better or other songs had better singers and Lordi didn't deserve to win because it was all cheap image and gimmic etc?????? Sorry have I missed the boat here, because when did the Eurovision become some great bench mark or well of talent from which we draw our musical greats from!!!!? :confused:

If that's not an invite for me to tab it I don't know what is!!! :p

humancorpse 2006-05-21 15:28

I saw this, and while I didn`t like them, I`d rather have them winning than some random pop band.
