Ok what the FUCK??????
The more and more I read about these guys the more and more confused I get.......Just what in the hell are they all about? I see the so called Heartagram, the pentagram that has the heartshape, then I read the Bio's on these fucks and it still baffles me.... I can't tell if these guys are satanists, gay, straight. I think its all a big joke. I mean who ever plays Love songs for metal?????? I mean I think its hilarious that they did covers of Wicked Game by Chris Isaak and Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper (which was surprisingly good), but come on, what, did they just break up with their girlfriends?
Anyways on to the review.......by the way don't expect any kind of growls on this cd.....I think the lead singer thinks he is Jim Morrison. The music is laden with cheesy sounding synth work, and cheesy lyrics. check it out for yourself......Buried alive by love???????????? I think all you need to know is that if you put this on for your lady she will love you till death. By the way you can't blame the Finnish for being fucked up, if you lived in darkness for 6 months out of the year you would probably be fucked up too.
PS - I think the only reason why anyone listens to this is because of Bam Margera of CKY fame.
Rating 2 out of 10 (gave a 2 because i have a soft spot for the Finnish)
