Lordi - Drummer Fired For Unmasking Himself


Finnish heavy metal monsters Lordi have released the following statement:

"It is our unfortunate task to inform that drummer Kita is no longer a member of Lordi. Kita has made a decision to pursue his own career publicly as himself, without his alter ego Kita. This is in direct conflict with one of the cornerstones of Lordi's image. Therefore it is not possible for him to continue as a member of the band anymore.

Lordi will continue as always, masked and costumed, consisting of monster personas. Also, the upcoming tour will happen as planned. We thank Kita for the years he has been an important part of the band and our successes and wish him all the best in his future."

This hard decision came after the announcement earlier today that Finnish melodic rock band Stala & So. - which features in its ranks Kita (real name: Sampsa Astala) on vocals and ex-Lordi bassist Kalma (real name: Niko Hurme; also known by his current stage name Nick Gore) - will be competing to represent Finland in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.

It just shows how this band is all about theatrics and shit and not about music. No wonder they suck so bad.

They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

To be fair I did see them live about four years ago and they were a helluva lotta fun. Can't comment on how they are now though.

Less is More

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

I'd expect something like that in the Red Light District, not on Metalstorm

Just so you guys know, "kita" means "cock" in Serbian.... Totally irrelevant, but I got a chuckle from it.

The whole topic is ridiculous.
Giving importance to the image, rather than the music itself...
