Eurovision Metal Victors Lordi Plan To Release Seven New Albums This Month

In a move of truly King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard proportions, Finnish metal favourites and Eurovision alumni Lordi is releasing seven albums on November 26.

The boxset, titled Lordiversity, will see the band take on disco, progressive metal, AOR, industrial metal, thrash, and more – but frontman Mr. Lordi has revealed that he originally wanted to drop ten records.

That idea was (unsurprisingly) vetoed by his Finnish record label, who clearly felt that seven new LP’s at once was the sweet spot for modern marketing.

“I think this is the first time any band released seven full-length studio albums at the same time,” said Mr. Lordi to French radio station 213Rock Harrag Melodica.

“In reality, what I wanted to do was to release 10 albums, and it was just the record label who said, ‘Okay, that’s too much. Seven is okay, but 10 is too much.’

“But the funny thing here is that we could have easily done the 10 albums — easily, with no problem. Because what we managed to do is we recorded the seven albums in nine months. So we could have easily done the 10.”

Mr. Lordi went on to acknowledge that without “the Corona” such a project wouldn’t have been possible. Respect the hustle.

The Lordiversity boxset reads as follows.
