Finland’s Lordi rock Orion club in Rome March 5th, 2015

Finland’s hard rock-heavy metal band, Lordi, shook Rome’s Orion club to the ground. 

The Finnish hard rock-heavy metal band Lordi are currently on tour to promote their latest and 7th album, “Scare Force One”.  A packed and avid Lordi audience followed the band’s particular brand of theatrical “monster” hard rock music at Rome’s Orion club. 

The band was formed in 1992 by the band’s lead singer, songwriter and costume maker, Mr. Lordi.   Together with the band’s rather “melodic” metal music, Lordi is perhaps more famous for wearing monster masks and using horror elements with pyrotechnics during concerts and music videos.  The band’s major influences are Kiss, Twisted Sister and also Alice Cooper.
Lordi made history in 2006 by becoming the first, and still today, the only hard rock act to win the Eurovision Song Contest. Original members Mr. Lordi and guitarist Amen are still active with the band.
