Turo (25) is stuck in a small village in Northern Finland. The only glimpses of light in his life are provided by the amateur metal band, whose vocalist he is. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway: the head of Northern Damnation, a huge metal festival. They decide that it’s now or never. After a miserable warm-up gig Impaled Rektum breaks up just to get together again. They steal a van, a corpse and a coffin from the local cemetery, a new drummer from the local mental hospital and flee to Norway. As they are escaping Finnish police, they have to face the Norwegian Army and its notorious “Delta troppen” in order to get to play their first real gig.
