"The Arockalypse" (The End; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Horror shock-rock meets Gwar-inspired latex gore gone KISS-inspired mad. Those words best describes the mania that is Lordi.
This quintet play the kind of sugar-coated hair metal anthems that Europeans can't get enough of, putting whips and chains on AC/DC on "Bringing Back the Balls to Rock" and even getting the legendary Udo to contribute to "They Only Come Out at Night."
Best served with barrels of beer in a soccer stadium, this Finnish fivesome's latest entry into the metal costume ball gets a VIP pass.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
