The band commented:

“Dear LORDI fans,

This is a very sad day in the history of the band. Our long term bandmember and close friend OX has decided to leave the band after the summer festivals 2019. OX, all the best for your future and thanks for the fantastic time we had all together.”

Ox added:

“It has come the day that I have to tell you that I will be leaving Lordi. There is no drama, no major issues or anything like that. I just feel very strong urge to do something else in music and to be available for other musical journeys, what ever those will be. I will do the summer festivals with Lordi and after that it’s time for the new guy to take it from there. I wanna thank the band and especially the best fans on this planet, for these 13 years and the greatest ride of my life. I love you all from the pound of my heart and I hope to see you again somewhere sometime.❤”

Mr. Lordi had the following to say about the effort in a recent interview with Spark:

“There’s two kinds of LORDI material on the album. The first six songs are your classic LORDI kind of stuff — three- or four-minute songs with hooky choruses and stuff; eighties-orientated hard rock, like the shit that we’re doing. That’s our main stuff. But now, the last six songs of the album is gonna be a story.”

“It’s our first conceptual half an album — not a full conceptual album, but half of the album is a conceptual storyline with six songs. And musically, also, it’s a lot more modern for us; I mean, it’s nothing new in the world of music, but, for us, for LORDI, it’s completely different. It’s more metal. It’s more progressive. The songs are eight minutes long, and there are a lot of different parts. And it’s a storyline. Because I’m a huge KING DIAMOND fan; I have always been.”

“I am really fucking thrilled about the result, how it came out. It’s different for us. I know that it’s gonna be different for the LORDI diehard fans too. I don’t know for your average rock or metal fan. It’s, like, ‘Eh….’ But, for us, it is really breaking new territory, definitely.”

“It’s a horror story. It’s called ‘Demonarchy’. It has, like, these classic old-school monsters having rivals… They are having territorial rivals. There’s one vampire, one witch, on zombie, and a werewolf. And they are having a bit of a dispute about how to share their territory, because they all live in the same town. That’s the story.”
