A monstrous project is ahead of us and without a doubt, this is as unique as LORDI‘s costumes and career. Mr. Lordi and his crew are announcing the release of a boxset of 7 new albums at once. The Lordiversity box shall be available on November 26th as 7-CD boxset and as 7-Vinyl boxset in three different colour editions. Each album has a different genre approach (Hard Rock, Disco, Progressive Rock, Heavy Metal, AOR, Thrash/Speed Metal & Industrial Metal) and the whole concept is based on the last record Killection, which came out early 2020 and celebrated various chart successes.
Mr. Lordi explains: “Within a week when the Killectour was cut short in March 2020, I realized we’re gonna have to use the sudden extra time somehow. It was clear that it is the time to start planning the new album, even though Killection was released not even two months before. I was thinking that the most boring thing we could do after Killection, is to do another basic Lordi album. And I was very much enjoying the different styles of song writing, recording and production on Killection, but another boring idea would have been to do a part two. Since Killection is a fictional compilation album from a fictional back catalogue that doesn’t exist, I got the idea that the only thing that could top that, is to record and release that fictional back catalogue. And until Halloween 2021 the fictional back catalogue will be no longer fictional, it actually will exist… at least for the most part. My original idea was to release 10 albums, but the label said that is insane. But 7 is a number they felt that is somewhat sane, hahahaha! “
The new song Believe Me has it’s origin in the band fictional Disco-era. Imagine LORDI performing a classic disco track in the style ABBA, KISS or the Bee Gees in the late ’70s, while Disco music hit its peak. A hilarious and entertaining idea that now becomes reality.
