"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.

Rating Guide:

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.
