LORDI Announces New Album Screem Writers Guild- Video Single “Lucyfer Prime Evil” Now Playing
Come one, come all, to preview the new blockbuster - ahem, album - from the world's favorite hard rock monsters, LORDI, who are set to add the next chapter to their spooky history. Today, the quintet announces their eighteenth studio album, Screem Writers Guild, scheduled to see release on March 31st via their new label home, Atomic Fire Records.
Its title -- a "LORDIfied" play on words -- is a reference to the “Screen Writers Guild," an association of Hollywood screenplay writers (1920s to 1950s), yet there is no doubt that LORDI's musical version is much louder and fiercer. "The record itself isn't a real concept album, but it obviously plays with the overall cinematic theme," says Mr. Lordi.
The news of the release is accompanied by the unveiling of the track “Lucyfer Prime Evil” alongside a lyric video, drawn by Kaarle and scripted and edited by mastermind Mr. Lordi himself.
Mr. Lordi explains, "This is the first chance for the fans to hear our new guitar player Kone in action on a record. He is doing a pretty lengthy guitar solo on the track, with Hella backing him up by keyboard harmonies here and there. It's also the very first time in LORDI's history that you can actually hear the whole band sing backing vocals on this album. Story-wise, 'Lucyfer Prime Evil' gives quite a good example of the themes and lyrical content that await you on the record: it's a horror story… like an eerie horror movie theme song. Although this song isn't really based on any particular horror movie, the conceptual theme of what to expect from the whole album should come across pretty clear."
