Lordi invades the USA

by Cem Yalcinkaya 45 views

Lordi, the monster hard rock band which brought Finland its first ever Eurovision victory, has been selected as one of the main stage acts for OZZFEST 2007. Together with main stage headliners Lamb of God and Ozzy Osbourne among others, Lordi will meet the American hard rock fans.

After having released a special 2CD/DVD version of their latest album The Arockalypse, Lordi are ready to start their first tour across North America. The band sees it as an honour to be on OZZFEST. Mr Lordi stated that he is happy with the opportunity to show people in the U.S. what they can do and added that he is really anxious to see how the audiences will react to them: "My best friend is a huge Ozzy fan he’s really jealous of the whole thing. I’m gonna try and remember to pick him up an OZZFEST t-shirt when we return to Finland. For us the idea of playing OZZFEST is still hard to believe. I’ll believe it when we’re there." From their point of view, the United States tour feels "like coming home’. According to Mr Lordi due to the American musical and visual influences in their style, Lordi is often described as the ‘most American band’ in Finland.
