Finnish heavy metal group Lordi is one of several playing at a Wellington Easter concert that has upset a pentacostal church.
The band, whose five members dress in elaborate costumes as monsters and demons, won the Eurovision song contest last year.
The winning song, Hard Rock Hallelujah, includes the lyrics “I got horns on my head, my fangs are sharp and my eyes are red” – and prompted Finland’s religious leaders to warn that the band could inspire devil worship.
You know when The Wiggles put on little tricorne hats and sashes and then they wave little plastic sabers around while saying “Arrr!” so as to pretend to be pirates?
That’s both more Heavy Metal AND more Satanic than anything Lordi have ever done, ever.
Just sayin’ is all.
