First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

Image
At last, after five years of long waiting for an event I thought would never come, it has finally happened! Last night was the most epic night of my life, the most epic of all the concerts I've been to. Lordi was amazing beyond words and that makes the entire wait worth it. At last I can check off the top item on my bucket list.

So, how was it? I went out of my way to prepare for this concert, even if it meant getting ready and eating early so that nothing would come up to distract me, and that's what I always seem to do when I attend concerts that are general admission for everyone.

We arrived at The Opera House at a reasonable time and surprisingly there was no lineup except a few people hanging outside the doors, so we stood near them chatting for hours until it was time for all VIP attendees to go inside. While most people went for the merchandise stand, I bolted straight for the stage, propped myself up in front center against the railing. I did not budge for the rest of …

Good evening,

I finally was able to get back into it after taking a week-long break to focus on other commitments. You know, I feel like part of me almost didn't want to complete Dragon Age II, because I didn't feel engaged with it as I did as with the other two games. It wasn't as difficult to complete, but what motivated me to keep playing, was to complete the trilogy, and fill in the gaps of the story that I wanted to learn which came before Inquisition.

Let me just say in short summary, we have a madwoman.


I've written little things about the Arishok as I progressed, but everything about Meredith and the rest of the game will be in my review which I will start writing ASAP before things get too tight from the last few weeks of the semester.

In summary, I can tell you for now that this game was a little difficult to follow with some moments that had me like "What? That makes no sense," and I wasn't fond of all the companions. I just went with the flow …

Hell Stole My Baby

Well, they're back! New look and new music, I couldn't be more pumped. Any new music is enough to make almost drop everything to hear what it is.

I woke up bright an early to buy the new single released before catching the bus this morning and listened during my commute.

Over the past few days, Lordi was posting teaser photos of the single's cover, but after the bottom part, I already knew which song it was going to be:


Your Tongue's Got the Cat. The first thing I can think of is that idiom inspired by this. The cover for the single: great art as usual, kind of freaky too, I almost cannot tell what's got what here. No, even as a cat lover I do not take offense to this hahaha!
So, I'll talk about the song first. It is certainly catchy and is already something I want to belt out if I hear it live. The guitar riff and keyboards are awesome and Mr. Lordi's vocals are always on point. Now that I think about it, I may have misjudged, because all of us were worried…

Return of the Pack

Powerwolf is back everyone!

2018 has been full of surprises the past few months with new albums released, as well as remasters for games I grew up with.

Aside from Sexorcism, another album that will be on my to-buy list this year is from the almighty Powerwolf:


The wolf pack has returned! Another band I deeply love is releasing a new album this year. I've been watching the band's updates on the recording process ever since they went back to the studio. The hype increased when they started releasing track titles each day.

Here's what we've got:

1. Fire & Forgive
2. Demons Are A Girl‘s Best Friend
3. Killers With The Cross
4. Incense And Iron
5. Where The Wild Wolves Have Gone
6. Stossgebet
7. Nightside Of Siberia
8. The Sacrament Of Sin
9. Venom Of Venus
10. Nighttime Rebel
11. Fist By Fist (Sacralize Or Strike)
12. Midnight Madonna (bonus track)
So far, I'm liking these titles, it seems like typical Powerwolf to me, and I don't have too many expectations wi…

Sexorcism Era Masks - Detailed Review

As promised, I was going to wait until we received more pictures of Lordi's new look so I could talk about them in a little more detail.

Now, we've got them, and the close-ups look great, so here we go:

OX 



Hell on Hooves for sure! OX has definitely been outdone for this era. Some of us are comparing him to Krampus or the devil himself. I love his horns; they kind of have a resemblance to a Qunari and I think these are closer to perfect than ever. The dreadlocks are still there but look even better now that they've got skulls on them. Makes him look like he has pigtails almost!

Making him red this time was a bold move of Mr. Lordi when he was designing the costumes. Now OX truly looks like the Hellbull! The fur is also a staple part of his look, even though he's had it before, I like it more than previous eras. It would be a killer to see him live like this.

Amen



Our ancient assassin. I felt like not much about Amen had changed until I got a better look. The shape of the…

Can you believe it's happening guys? I can't believe it!


For those of you who know me well, Spyro is one of my favourite dragons since childhood. There were rumors floating around as well as some fan-made videos and art, and I prefer to keep quiet about it here until I know it's official.

Now it is, the original Spyro trilogy is being remastered and is set to release on September 21st this year for PS4 and Xbox One. My inner child is screaming with excitement!

As you can see from above, that is Spyro's new look for this trilogy remake. He looks really good and is a lot more purple than before! There are a few minor changes to him but I'm not one of those nitpicky gamers who lets insignificant details with graphics turn me off.

Activision understands how precious this trilogy is to many fans, so it appears they are making changes but still staying true to the original. Although this news was announced on Friday, I didn't notice until this morning. From what I…

The Road to Sexorcism Era

Okay, I lied, I was going to sign off for the Easter weekend, but I surprisingly have Easter Monday off so what better time could it be to give my thoughts on Lordi's new album Sexorcism now that more details are available? Other fans, including my good friend overseas, have already posted their thoughts, so I guess it's my turn now.

So, let's start with the track list:

1. Sexorcism
2. Your Tongue's Got the Cat
3. Romeo Ate Juliet
4. Naked in my Cellar
5. The Beast is Yet to Cum
6. Polterchrist
7. SCG9: The Documented Phenomenon
8. Slashion Model Girls
9. Rimskin Assassin
10. Hell Has Room
11. Hot and Satanned
12. Sodomesticated Animal
13. Haunting Season

When the title of the album was first revealed, I had a bad feeling that this wasn't going to be a good old horror album that I know from Lordi. I was concerned that the band was going down a pornographic road that my inner-feminist didn't want to be a part of. I know for a fact that the band members are not m…

I Got Sinister Torn Ignorance of Witches - Music of March 2018

March has come and gone and Easter is early this year! The first two weeks of my hospital placement are short and the first week flew by so quickly.

The four weeks of being back on campus definitely dragged and when we booked our vacation down South to the Caribbean for my birthday, I had something to look forward to.

I'm just going to jump straight into it.

5. Bebe Rexha - I Got You



Fun fact: the first time I heard this song was when my mom and I were eating dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Toronto. (I still can't believe they are closing that place down! Food, service, and atmosphere is great there). Then I heard it on the radio and was reminded how much I liked it. There are just some pop songs that do that to you. The pre-chorus is repetitive, but the rest of the song is great. I can think of it as two people who had had difficult times in life and are there for one another as friends or lovers. I, of course am there for my friends who have had tough times, and my S…
