Sick Flick

So, after finishing off a review for a new album, I decided it was time for me to finally get out and get into the new Lordi album, “Monstereophonic” or as I call it – “Månster-e-ju-fånict” which translates to “Monsters are really lame”. It’s all a parody, folks, don’t take it too seriously.

So basically, what I did was to put the album on my iPod and get outside, perhaps a little later than I had originally planned, and head out in the forest, just me and the iPod. There’s nothing I love more than being out in the nature, walking around, climbing around, basically being on the move, and I came to realize I pay a lot more attention to the music if I’m out, away from distraction, away from other people, just me, the music and the nature on our own.

And let me tell you something. When the SCG for “Demonarchy” started, it was just like something was changing. I’d look right into the pitch black forest and almost feel like fairies were twinkling behind the trees, like magical sparkling mushrooms would grow out of the ground, like mythical creatures would start surrounding you, the world would be glittering, while feeling the magical notes coming through the earbuds before it aggressively changes rhythm and the feeling of being unsafe would take over, looking out for werewolves and zombies.

Isn’t it amazing, how a simple instrumental track, can trigger a vivid imagination, and what sort of feelings and mood they can set? That, my friends, is the beauty of music.
