Who of the famous musicians wore masks and why?
Each of us has heard about costume musicians more than once. But, remembering them, the first to come to mind are the guys from the KISS group. These six guys were the first to decide to “hide” behind a thick mask of white paint. The initiators of this innovation were Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The remaining four members of the group actively advocated for this idea. It is noteworthy that each participant has his own specific image, which is unique. By the way, Kiss is also the founder of such a style of music as glam / shock / hard rock.
Every self-respecting rock fan knows about the Lordi rock band. In principle, even those who do not show much zeal for rock have heard about these hot Finnish guys. They earned their fame because in 2006 at the Eurovision Song Contest they hit the Jackpot. The guys play only hard’n’heavy, and their performance is notable for the fact that they perform in costumes.the way, their costumes are quite original. They especially stood out from the rest of the participants in the music contest. The guys from Lordi dressed in costumes of orcs and monsters were in stark contrast to the background of “sleek” representatives of other countries. Some believe that perhaps in the near future they will conquer the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with their amazing costumes.
Another group that used “terrible” costumes was the American band GWAP. They themselves call their costumes the costumes of aliens from outer space, but, strictly speaking, they are more reminiscent of something from medieval fantasy.
Costumes Lordi and GWAP are very similar. And GWAP accuses Lordi of stealing their idea with costumes.
A distinctive feature of the rock band GWAP is their immediate cruelty during each performance. It manifests itself in the fact that each time they “kill” a scarecrow of any of the politicians or other musicians. Along with them, at each of their performances, they kill the scarecrow and the leader of their opponents – the rock band Lordi. It is also noteworthy that at the concerts there are strippers, whose bodies, by the way, are open to the public.
Another costume group is The Berzerker. The guys from the group did not want to bother about the costumes. They revealed the images of ghouls, ghouls and goblins. The homeland of the group is Australia. And the guys are playing “death metal industrial”.
Many say that some of the band’s videos are banned in other parts of the world. And this is due to the fact that epileptics have bouts when viewed.
