WOW! Look at this group. I haven't seen anything like them since watching a horror movie or something. It's no wonder they have been getting so much press coverage. What do you want to bet that they get much bigger!

What do you think of this? Is it different? Something to talk about? Do you think it will create a much bigger buzz?

The band Lordi won a nationwide competition to represent Finland at the Eurovision song contest this year.

NYT (http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/24/world/europe/24finn.html) - They have eight-foot retractable latex Satan wings, sing hits like "Chainsaw Buffet" and blow up slabs of smoking meat on stage. So members of the band Lordi expected a reaction when they beat a crooner of love ballads to represent Finland at the Eurovision song contest in Athens, the competition that was the springboard for Abba and Celine Dion.

You got to hand it to them. Their customes are really colorful and attention getting. You can tell they spend quite a bit of time putting this together. I hope their music is as creative, then they will really have something to run with.

It kind of like "Kiss", but stranger

Good point!

When Kiss first started it was the makeup that really helped create a buzz for them. Sure they make great music too, but it was the makeup that got them their first break to get record executives to notice them.

We are always looking for something different.
