This Is Heavy Metal

Album: Babez For Breakfast (2010)
  • This is the first single from Finnish heavy metal monsters Lordi's fifth studio album, Babez For Breakfast. It features cover art created by Lordi mainman Mr. Lordi. "I wanted to paint a picture which at the same time crystallizes something of the essence that is of '80s metal and also as pays a visual tribute to many of our own idols of that era," commented Mr. Lordi. "So, to be able to fit them all in, I created a Frankenstein monster made out of bits and pieces of members of Twisted Sister, Kiss, W.A.S.P. and Alice Cooper, to name only a few.
    The song itself is written in the same train of thought and appreciation. I wanted to write a song that is heavy metal according to Lordi. The riff should sound familiar from the first second you hear it and you should be able to sing along the chorus already when it comes out the second time."
