Lordi added to billing of Serbia's Castle Festival
Friday, January 18, 2008
Festival organisers released a statement saying “Lordi is very popular in Serbia amongst heavy metal bands. They revolutionised Eurovision with their rock song”. This refers to Lordi's victory at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, at which their song Hard Rock Hallelujah scored a record 292 points and gave Finland their first win at the contest.
The bands scheduled span a wide range of rock and metal genres. Amongst the other acts already confirmed to appear are Judas Priest, Helloween, Soilwork, Ensiferum, At The Gates, Avantasia, Sodom, Dismember, Saturnus, Manticora and Sybreed.
