In this wonderfully offbeat comedy from Finland, 25-year-old musician Turo is stuck in a rut in his small village. The only source of enjoyment in his life is being the lead vocalist for ‘Impaled Rektum’, his amateur heavy metal band which has spent 12 years together without success. So when fate intervenes with the offer of a gig at Norway’s biggest metal festival, Turo and his band decide that it’s now or never…

Heavy Trip Pays Loving Homage To Metal and Its Worshippers. For those about to rock, this Finnish dark comedy salutes you.’ - Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound

A cult hit waiting in the wings. Come for the brutal music, stay for the charming DIY optimism.’ -Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com
