With a turnover of 85,000 euros, Lordi Enterprises was 70,000 euros in the red.

Things looked rosier in 2009, when the masked musicians' company boasted a turnover of 450,000 euros.

Lordi Enterprises was born in 2006—the same year the heavy metal monsters ended Finland's Eurovision drought with their catchy hit "Hard Rock Hallelujah." The company is headed by the band’s frontman, Tomi Putaansuu, also known as Mr. Lordi.

The pyrotechnic ensemble has released six studio albums to date, featured in the Finnish horror film Dark Floors and even have their own smartphone app.

PM: Time not right for Finland’s NATO membership

Alexander Stubb hymyilee.

Speaking on Yle TV1’s morning show Ykkösaamu on Saturday morning, Prime Minister Alexander Stubb says now is not the time to decide on Finland's potential NATO membership. Political and financial turbulence in Russia and the upcoming Finnish elections in the spring are among more pressing issues, and the PM does not have any difference of opinion on Finland's foreign and security policy with the President Sauli Niinistö, says Stubb.
