Mr Lordi DIY Thrash Hits

What if your wretched hovel is so far gone that even the artwork of Valient Himself won’t sort it out? Well, if a Finnish TV production company gets their way, you might be lucky enough to get a local rock star to come round, smash your place up, then help rebuild it in an altogether snazzier and sharper style.

April 15th, 2011

It’s the hottest grindcore package tour of Spring 2011 so after gobbling some free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, we all traipsed down to the grotty Camden underworld that is… The Underworld. Rotten Sound, Trap Them and Gaza were the ones we really wanted to see so we’ve totally ignored Haust and The Kandidate. Sorry, lads. The other three were bloody good though!

Thrash Hits TV: SpineFeast at Sea 2009
