You make an excellent point estranged. I think it has summed up the discussion quite well.

I don't know if I would like a second guitaris because Mr. Amen would always be THE guitarist and the second one would be his shadow in my opinion.

Personally I dont think Amen needs anyone helpin out. He's done a great job thus far by my ears. If another guitar is needed it would only be live I imagine. And they could just go the Nevermore route and use a touring musician. A Monster for hire if ya will ;)

If Lordi wants a second guitarist I'd do that for free :)

I think it would be great to have two guitarplayers. I mean why not? There's actually nothing negative about it ;)

At the moment, Lordi really don't need a secondary guitarist. Amen has managed to keep the blood pumping in Lordi by himself. The way I see it, Lordi should only consider getting another guitarist if they change their style to something heavier.....which I doubt will ever happen.

Like it was said there by someone before me , why change a winning team ? No I don´t think Amen needs any help because I personally think he does one hell of a great work there on stage. Let him rule on stage with his skills, yeah well that´s my opinion :wink:

I really wouldn't like a second guitarist, I never like second guitarists in any other bands either, I think it's better to have 1 for each instrument. Dunno why, I just don't like it.

In technical things when they play live I think Lordi needs second guitarist because Amen can't play all things, but at studio they don't need it.

If it's Kalma, that'll be OK (he can play guitar, too, as I know). But I think that Amen is enough of cute guitarists anyway.

I think Lordi should be left the way they are.Anyway if we add another guitarist to the mix, Amen wont have room to run around all over stage with another guitarist in the way will he? :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol: :wink:

NO, they don't, cause there is no need of a second guitar

and in addition they have keyboards, I think many bands with keyboards don't have that or many bands with two guitars don't have any keyboard, or am I wrong?

Noone mentioned The Chainsaw buffét. Well I'd love to see this song live and you need 2 gitarrists for this song, but I don't want to have more than 5 monsters on the stage for the whole time...There would be less room for Amen and OX to run over the stage :wink: :D

Well, If Lordi can survive, I mean relly survive after years hard work, why shall they change something whits works just fine?

And yes.. Amen is tallent guitar player, no questions about that.

If now Mr Lordi or some one else choise is to take in more, if it works ..
then I think we fans can a list give it one change :D

I'd agree on one condition: that the 2nd guitarist was Kalma and no one else. Otherwise, no.

Tricky question. It doesn't matter on the albums how many guitar players they have, but when you listen them live, the sound is sometimes too thin. Mostly on the parts which have harmonies, solos etc. stuff. Lordi's live sound doesn't kick ass as much it's supposed. It's supposed to be BIG and CRUNCHY. That's my opinion.

But.

I can't imagine another monster joining the group right now. Although the current line-up has been around for only 2 years, it feels like it has been like this forever. Don't get me wrong, I like Enary and I LOVE Kalma but this seems to be the ultimate - and do I dare to say: the classic - Lordi line-up.

But Narif, would Kalma really be 'Kalma' without the biker zombie costume? OX might not recognize his brother. :wink: And I'd love to see some fancier robes on Pasi. I love the Demon make-up, but I'd add something to the robes to mark him as a herald of Lordi, like their mask logo. I know the band has a lot of costumes to keep track of already, but a quick shot of silkscreening or good old needle and thread could give it that special touch it deserves for the guy who does work of a choir (and then some) while they're on tour.

Second guitarist?

Postby myblueworks » Wed Mar 19, 2008 11:23 pm

I voted no they really don't need another one there great with Amen. They should stay with him only he rocks. So my opinion is that they don't need another guitarist

I voted for no. I would like to see another monster join the band but not just now, maybe sometime in the future. Like a couple of years maybe. I'm happy enough with Lordi consisting of only 5 monsters, can't really explain why, but to me that feels the right size for the band.
