Lordi - New Drummer Joins The Band

Finnish hard-rockers Lordi have a new drummer. The band posted the following statement on their official website: "Lordi has got a new drummer. His character's name will not be revealed yet and he will be simply called 'the drummer' for now. The mask and the costume are kept to the minimum, but enough to fit him visually in to the band for the upcoming shows."

"We don't want to introduce a new character yet, because we feel it is still way too close to the time when our drummer Otus passed away. Making any kind of fuss about a new member would simply be too disrespectful. However, we need a drummer in order to play. And since we are Lordi, no-one will ever perform in the band as himself, without a character," Mr. Lordi states.

"So, the new drummer does have a mask and his costume is more than a t-shirt and jeans, but this is not the outfit of the actual character yet. We could say he is in disguise. The name and the look of the character will be revealed at the same time when the whole band comes out with new costumes and masks. This happens traditionally before a new album comes out," Mr. Lordi continues.

"There are no official photos of the new drummer yet and it also looks like there will not be any before the character will be officially introduced. The new drummer can be seen for the first time in Italy, at Metalitalia.com festival on May 5th, 2012."

Lordi is terrible. They sound like New Edguy with Gwar's image.

His character name might not be named yet, but we all know it's HellHammer.

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.

Due to the global recession the new drummer will wear just his underpants and a paper bag on his head.
