has anyone seen Lord Vicar’s “Gates of Flesh” vinyl?

The special “package”, originally announced last year (!), then postponed, then rescheduled two months ago, and expected to ship yesterday, has not been seen by anyone anywhere…

 

Seeing how “Doom Legend” Kimi Kärki has had a hand in disastrous “delayed” releases in the past, all the way back from 2008 with Reverend Bizarre’s “Magick with Tears” non-opus, to last year’s “delayed” CD misprint of the “Gates of Flesh” album (also handled by The Church Within / Doom Dealer), the absence of any info on serial-facebook-poster Kimi’s profiles raises questions, and creates worries for those who have pre-ordered (not us, that is).

Any sightings, please contact this blog so we can put those who have already parted with their money out of their misery…

It’s still not the end of the world as we know it!

Whoa, what a week! Not only the world did not end on tuesday, despite Albert Witchfinder’s hopes, fears and repeatedly strictly accurate predictions, but also Sami Hynninen hit the four decades mark, as of yesterday…

Sami has accomplished much during his time on this earth, certainly far more than other men twice his age (and half his size), and today he looks to the future with renewed enthusiasm and joie de vivre, new-found maturity and a certain sense of understanding.

Yeah, right. Who are we kidding? He just booked himself a weekend in the UK for easter…

Nevertheless, thanks to the magic of the internet, our associates have access to exclusive Sami Albert photos, with which they worked hard to put together a possible timeline for Sami Albert’s birthday celebrations. ‘Ere we go:

Dawn found him refreshed, in his custom bed linen and beauty mask…

He quickly jumped out of bed to enjoy a nutritious breakfast in his space shuttle-themed dining room…

On with the day’s events! First things first, the garden decorations need to be approved. Even if it’s your birthday…

Soon afterwards, a welcome reunion with old friends, who sure bear a certain likeness to ex-members of Reverend Bizarre…

And finally wrapping up the celebrations in the strip joint where Tamara works…

Happy birthday, Sami. Hope you had a great day. Needless to say, we do wish you all the best! 🙂

It’s still not the end of the world as we know it!

Endless November

Not since the crusades have men ventured out on such a noble cause. The 2015 Lord Vicar tour starts today! Round Midnight. In Paris. See what we did there?

Please study their itinerary carefully, and, if they’re playing in, or passing through, your city, we advise you do your bakery shopping as early as possible.

Somewhat spectacularly, they are joined by none other than Lohja bedroom pinup boy, most generous benefactor, eeny wheeny miney mo and blog favourite Sami Albert Hynninen on bass!

Sneaky Peter Vicar has managed to get the other Reverend Bizarre member in his band, too. Machiavelli rubs his hands with glee in the Asphodel Meadows, while Satan, laughing, spreads his wings…

Don Alberto made the announcement on his exquisitely reclusive facebook page, and followed up with at least two more posts, and countless comments afterwards. There’s no denying the boy’s excited.

There has been no official announcement on Lordy Lard’s page, however. Could there be more to that story? What’s with keeping lineup changes under wraps? Are they embarrassed to have a musician of Albert’s calibre and lofty status in the band? Some sad twat posted about it in their official forum, but there’s been no commentary there, either. We’re pretty sure they’ll be posting when the album’s available to buy, though.

Sadly, and according to Sami, they won’t be performing RB tunes on the tour, as Kimi likes to think that their Paris gig sold out because his band is getting bigger and better and that those who bought tickets are going to the gig to see himself, giving those “solos” he recorded by moonlight a go.

Anyway. Have fun if you do attend a gig (we’re not being sarcastic). And buy Albert a drink. Ideally before the show.

Endless November

Great Tidings !

Our favourite entertainer Sami Albert Hynninen survived another March 15th (of the year 2015, no less) last week, presumably by the age-proven method of hiding under his bed while clutching his Power Rangers collection and muttering sweet words about his distant friend and altruistic benefactor, Laura Valencia.

Then, on the 18th, he celebrated his birthday and turned 39 ! Here he is, at his party, with all of his friends:

Hyvää syntymäpäivää

Dear Sami, merry wishes for further enlightenments from all of us here at dwa 🙂

Great Tidings !
