Posted by miray on 28/05/06

Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt has commented on Lordi's surprise win in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, marking Finland's first Eurovision victory in 45 years. Asked by an Opeth fan on the band's official forum what he thought of Lordi winning the contest, Mikael replied, "Haha! I love watching that! This year there were quite a few decent songs and one amazing song...Bosnia/Herzegovina!! Song was called 'Leila', or something like that, and I fucking loved it! Will buy the single (in secrecy...)! There was one melody theme in there that was amazing. The guy had a fantastic voice too! Epic shit!!

"Sweden had a seasoned singer competing called Carola, who is practically the only superstar we have here. She can SING! I've always fancied her, ever since I was a kid, and she can SING! Don't tell the metalheads I said that...errr...too late!

"LORDI? Come on now, what am I, 5 years old??"
