Lordi – Monstereophonic (Theaterror vs Demonarchy) – Album review

Lordi - Monstereophonic

I’ve known Lordi for quite a while now. I must say I have to thank the Eurovision Song Contest for that, as I had never heard of them before that. Actually, they were one of the first Hard Rock bands that I started listening to back in the day, and besides their famous ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’, they surely had way more amazing songs. I was quite the fan of their latest album as well, so finding out there is a new album coming was a great surprise!

The intro surely is setting the tone, as it’s more horror sounding, creepy, just like we know Lordi. The intro leads up to ‘Let’s Go Slaughter He-Man (I wanna be the beast man)’, which does sound amazing immediately. The sound is more uplifting, but it still has a nice pace to it, and it makes me want to sing along right away...

Avantasia @ Tuska, Helsinki – 1.07.2016

Category: ArticlesConcert Photography Comments: No comments

A bit of a back story: my dad introduced me to Tobias Sammet and his work when I was around 10-11 and I’ve been a fan ever since. To be able to see Avantasia and take photos of their live performance made me fangirl so much! Therefore, they deserve their own post and a big thank you for an epic show that allowed me to take some shots I’m proud of!

Cain’s Offering, Lordi & Kvelertak @ Tuska, Helsinki – 1.07.2016

Category: ArticlesConcert Photography Comments: No comments

Finally I managed to get around to the first 3 bands I watched during Tuska’s Day 1. The difference in lighting that you will visibly notice is due to these photos being shot on different stages, one of them being outside, while the other one was in a tent. Without further ado, I give you Cain’s Offering, Lordi and Kvelertak! Enjoy!
