The Finnish heavy metal band, who won Eurovision in 2006 with ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’, released an album in 2020 called ‘Killection’. The album was a fictional compilation that the band would have written had it existed between the early 1970s and mid 1990s.

The new collection of seven albums will be released as “Lordiversity” on November 26 as a seven-CD / vinyl set. Each album focuses on a different genre: hard rock, disco, progressive rock, heavy metal, AOR, thrash or speed metal and industrial metal (via Blabbermouth).

The group opened on the. project more in a new interview with 213Rock Harrag Melodica, which you can listen to here:

Lordi frontman Mr Lordi said of the release: “Actually what I wanted to do was release ten albums, and it was just the record company that said, ‘Okay, it’s too much. Seven is good, but ten is too much. But the funny thing here is that we could have easily made the ten albums – easily, no problem. Because what we managed to do was we recorded all seven albums in nine months. So we could have easily done on 10.

He continued, “I don’t think there is [an artist] in all kind of music that did that. I think this is the first time that a band has released seven full studio albums at the same time.

Asked about the process and if it was difficult, he added: “It was, but it wasn’t. Let me put it this way: without the corona this would not have been possible, of course. Of course not. But because all of a sudden you have all this time, and nobody really knows how much time you really have, because nobody knows when this pandemic will end, I already knew a year and a half ago when our tour stopped because of the crown, I already knew that it will not go away in a year; It’s gonna take, like, two years.

“And it’s been almost two years already – like, over a year and a half now. So I knew we were going to have to use the time somehow. And without the crown, that wouldn’t have been possible, of course. Because now you have time, because you didn’t have concerts, you didn’t have tours, you didn’t have anything else.

The seven albums contained in the “Lordiversit” collection are: “Skelectric Dinosaur”, “SuperFlyTrap”, “The Masterbeast From The Moon”, “Abusement Park”, “Humanimals” “Abracadaver” and “Spooky Sextravaganza Spectacular”.

Earlier this year, Lordi was unveiled as a performer in the grand finale of the Eurovision Song Contest.
