Bass Cover #71: LORDI - Blood Red Sandman

Finally, I got to my first Lordi cover! I've always liked this band, right from the first time I've seen their “Would You Love A Monsterman?” video back in 2002. Some would say I got hooked on their image, but it really wasn't all about those monster costumes and masks. The main thing was Lordi's music which was like super catchy 80's rock with some modern technologies involved and horror-oriented lyrics. What was not to dig there? :) When the band has won the Eurovision contest in 2006 I could say I knew Lordi before it became mainstream to know them!

Alright, here's my attempt to play one of their most known songs from the second album “The Monsterican Dream” which is called “Blood Red Sandman”. I can't say it felt right to play it with the first string tuned down to A, but I guess I've managed somehow.

Oh, by the way, If you haven't watched the official video for the song you should totally watch it! Especially, if you're a fan of the classic horror movies like “Evil Dead”! I am :)
