Lordi's very first demo album Napalm Market was done in The album included a song " Inferno ", which also got a music video, all done by Mr Lordi. In the music video Mr Lordi performed unmasked but he had made monster make-up for his friends who played secondary role in the video. After the video was done, Mr Lordi got an idea of a band of monsters.
During the cruise he met musicians Amen and G-Stealerand told them about his music project called Lordi. After the cruise they joined the band. At the time when the album was recorded, the band didn't have a drummer and they used MIDI drum tracks in place of a real drummer.
Ari Tiainen, the owner of their record company, had originally planned to publish the album; however, the company did not have sufficient resources to market it. The album was planned to release in earlybut Anaconda Records went bankrupt shortly before the planned release date and the album was never released. The band never performed with the original line-up, though they had been promised a record release gig in Indrummer Kita joined and the band got their first drummer.
During the summer the band went under the auspices of producer TT Oksala's Finnvox Studios to record their first official album,  though debut recording ran into several problems. In autumnbassist Magnum was fired and replaced by Kalma. Though Lordi's debut album had already been recorded when Kalma joined, he appeared in the album art and the composition of the accounts.
The original first sketch of the cover was based on Kiss 's Destroyer album. The album won the Emma award for best domestic hard rock or heavy metal album, and Get Heavy has sold more than 67, copies.
It was certified platinum in Finland in and multi-platinum in Lordi played their first gig on 8 Decemberin Helsinki at the Nosturi Club. During some of the Germany tour, Lordi played as Nightwish 's support act. The tour boosted both bands' popularity in Germany and helped them sign a recording contract with the German record company Drakkar.
Nightwish had already achieved solid success of joint concerts in Germany and Lordi also raised their profile in Germany. At the beginning ofLordi began recording their next studio album.
This time the album was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa, with whom the band got along well. This second album was first released on 14 April as The Monsterican Dream. Corresponding with the release of the album, the band's costumes and image were also reformed.
The film, despite the success of the album it was attached to, has been poorly received. The album went gold two years after release.
Sanctuary had originally intended to market a collection of records in the United States, but these plans were halted due to financial problems. Sanctuary, however, published a compilation album in the UK. The idea of The Monster Show disc collection has its roots in springaround the release of The Monsterican Dream album. Later, Simmons' assistant announced that Simmons would be willing to publish Lordi's albums in the United States, but if the band would like to share sales revenue, it would be better to publish with Sanctuary Records.
Sanctuary did not want to publish either of the studio albums individually, and instead preferred a compilation of the best songs. The collection was published in the spring of during the European Monstour. Meanwhile, the internal atmosphere of the band increased in intensity and led to a dispute between members.
Later that year, bassist Kalma wanted to resign because of family and financial problems. Mr Lorditrying to persuade Kalma to stay, suggested that he just play the biggest tours and other contractually obligated performances.
Kalma, however, did not relent, because he wanted to be involved with the band either in full or not at all. Kalma did, however, play the bass units for the future The Arockalypse album.
Kalma left the band just before Lordi entered the Eurovision Song Contest qualifier. Two new members joined the band, bassist OX and keyboardist Awa.

Awa's was given a backstory wherein she was depicted as a psychic young woman who by means of astral projection discovers that her fiance is cheating on her, and murders him telekinetically.
She proceeds to use her abilities for evil, until she is caught and condemned to death by impalement, but her rage and hate is too strong and she returns as a murderous ghost, wandering Europe in her rotting wedding gown until she is found by Mr. Lordi and offered the ability to cross dimensions if she will work with him, to which she agrees. Lordi's third album The Arockalypse was released on May 1, The song scored points, which was an all-time points record for then.
Lordi was also a semi-final number one and even got points, which was historic, as they were the first competitors to win both the semi-finals and the finals.
Pasi Rantanen from the band Thunderstone performed backing vocals for the performance, wearing a Gene Simmons Kiss mask. The tour ended with a surprise: during the last gig in London, 31 October, the band's former bassist, Kalmawas seen as a guest on stage.
Around the same time, Bill Aucoinbest known as the original manager of Kiss, became Lordi's manager. In May, the band was involved in the Eurovision Song Contest held in Helsinki, and opened the competition with their winning song "Hard Rock Hallelujah".
