Blackwolf, a 4,000-year-old wizard and LORDI's number one fan, had the opportunity of a lifetime when Triumph the Insult Comic Dog introduced him to the Finnish monster rockers at NBC Studios earlier this month when the band taped its appearance for the "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" show. You can watch the video below.
"Deadache", the new album from LORDI, has registered the following European chart positions:
LORDI sold around 1,700 copies of "Deadache" in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 13 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
LORDI's previous studio album, "The Arockalypse", has sold more than 30,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD was released in over 30 countries, including Japan, and the album was certified over triple platinum in the band's home country of Finland, gold in Germany (100,000 units), and gold in Sweden (40,000 units). The single "Hard Rock Hallelujah" achieved gold status in Germany (150,000 units).
LORDI launched "Deadache" with a special performance on October 31 at the 700-capacity Tavastia club in Helsinki, Finland. This was the first time LORDI played on the stage of what is said to be Finland's most famous rock club.
