Hard Rock, Hallelujah!

LordiWhat do you get when you combine rock opera, heavy metal, christianity, and cheerleaders? Why, "Hard Rock Halellujah!" [13mb] of course. Lordi, a Finnish heavy metal christian band (and really, we can't have enough of these), recently won top honors in the Eurovision Song Contest with this very engrossing video.

I have to admit it is a thoroughly entertaining 3 minutes of rock; I even caught myself humming the tune after the video finished. You need to at least give them credit for being able to play a death-metal song with lyrics like this and keep a straight face:

Rock 'n roll angels bring thyn hard rock hallelujah
Demons and angels all in one have arrived
Rock 'n roll angels bring thyn hard rock hallelujah
In God's creation supernatural high
...
The true believers
Thou shall be saved
Brothers and sisters keep strong in the faith
On the day of Rockoning
It's who dares, wins
You will see the jokers soon'll be the new kings
All we need is lightning
With power and might
Striking down the prophets of false
As the moon is rising
Give us the sign
Now let us rise up in awe
