Review: Lordi - Monstereophonic (Theaterror vs. Demonarchy)

This is going to be Lordi their 8th studio album. In this album you have two different sides "Theaterror" that is old-school Lordi and "Demonarchy" is totally different introducing characters as the undead son, The bloodsucking count and the She wolf, it's a heavier aspect of Lordi. That sound has never been heard before.

Into this album: the first song is more of a mood setting intro, heavily breathing and talking with a low voice. The 2 songs flow perfect in each other the mind thinks it's still the first song. ‘Let's Go Slaughter He-Man (I Wanna Be The Beast-Man In The Masters Of The Universe) is the second song on this album and from the start you immediately think this is how Lordi is perfectly catching riffs and vocals. "Hug You Hardcore" was released early with the video clip with the WARNING!! This video is not bad for the kids, it's worse. This song has more rhythm in it and flows from begin to end. "Sick Flick" is a song that sounds like it's ripped out of the songbook from "Hard Rock Hallelujah". after this intro song "SCG VIII: Opening Scene" the second half of this album starts, with darker songs, riffs and they are faster. "Heaven Sent Hell On Earth" is the song that introduces the She wolf that is battling. "And The Zombie Says" in this song you have more a blacker metal feel like "Children of Bodom". The riffs are super dark with the drums and the guitars. "The Night The Monsters Died" is the last song on this beastly album, starts with Hella's piano and it is instantly recognizable Lordi, especially in the chorus "now we say goodbye for the final time".

You can't say it another way: this sure is a beast album, with two sides of Lordi. This album keeps you head banging with the catching riffs and also the slower songs. If you like Lordi, this is an album from them that you have to check out and put it as hard as your speakers can, even on repeat.
