To Participate: It’s been a very long time since Mr. Lordi brought his garish band over to our shores and that means a lot of people might not have had any proper exposure to their brand of musical mayhem. I am going to keep my itinerary to three things and ask you to just line out three reasons that you wish to go to this show. They should be sufficient enough to convince me on why you seek an audience with Mr. Lordi as he doles out the destructive tuneage. As always if you feel like impressing me you can even add a fourth (but no more). Make them good. I’ll be picking from the best submissions and letting them know right under their comment gird yourself for the things that go bump in the night and try your luck at this one. The contest will run until the night before the show or when supplied tickets are all utilized.

Lordi Announces North American “Monstour” For 2017

I was perusing the web looking up some bands that I had not seen in quite a while and ended up on the page for the band Lordi who as luck would have it, had just announced a new and exciting tour for the USA that would be coming in 2017. Considering we are in July at the moment, its hard to even imagine 2017 as something to be paying attention to but there we go. I’ve embedded the bands official statement along with the poster and some biography information since I am sure a lot of you readers do not know what to expect from this particular band. Here we go.

The Statement:
“Ladies and Gentlemen, a long awaited North American tour is now reality!! Lordi Monstour will travel over seas in 2017, starting in Vancouver Canada 2nd of February. Check out the tour dates and join the monstrous party in your city!”

“Saw 3D” by Various Artists

Artist: Various Artists
Title: “Saw 3D”
Label: Lionsgate Music
Release Date: 10/25/2010
Genre: Heavy Metal
Rating: 3.5/5

If you are a diehard fan of the horrific films that come bearing the “SAW” moniker then you will certainly be pleased to learn that a 3D film is the next installment of the franchise and sure to keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Being honest, these films are truly not something that I enjoy and they creep the hell out of me like few other things in the genre so I have problems sitting through them. I’m not embarrassed by this of course and proudly admit that a good old fashioned monster movie or an additional chapter maniac slasher featuring Jason, Freddie or Leatherface is more up my alley at the end of the day. This CD release is not so much music from the film as much as it is music inspired by the feature and that is something absolutely anyone can enjoy based on the wealth of difference being offered up. The sixteen tracks present some really interesting and possibly mystery acts to the listener, depending on how much attention they are paying to the underground scene around them and while some bands are cited as major players, there are others who are not mainstream radio fare by any length. We begin the journey with an unreleased track by Saving Abel who falls into the New Era Grunge movement if I had to lock into a specification and it’s not a bad tune at all. I enjoyed the Hinder contribution of “Waking Up The Devil” as I view the band a little higher than I originally did a couple of years ago. For me the first real treat comes via Karnivool who are described as Prog-Rock and yet to me feel more of a Melodic Dark Rock. I’ve seen them live and they are fantastic. Focus your attention on them and be the envy of those you know who feel their always ahead of the game.
