PROMISED LAND OF HEAVY METAL Film Application is an introduction to the world of heavy metal in general and to the Finnish heavy metal scene past and present. For a beginner and an enthusiast alike, it gives insight and anecdotes, ideas and conclusions and basis for further speculation in the ever inspiring subject of Heavy Metal.


“What is remarkable about this film is that it touches on aspects of the country’s music scene that have not yet been explored in an anthropological way.“ Louise Brown (Editor, Terrorizer Magazine, UK)

"How is life and the Metal scene in Finland?" I don´t need to talk about it -I just put this into the player.” (Klaudia Weber, Stalker, Germany)

"This film is one of the very best metal documentaries ever made." (Šaćir Čamo, Metal Revolution, Denmark)

“If metal is your true passion and you like especially Finnish metal, please give this film a heavy rotation in your player and enjoy! Kimmo&Tanja have put together a fantastic masterpiece of Rockumentary which will stand the corrosion of time. By the scene for the scene. Suomi Perkele!!!” (Thida Comello, MFT, Holland)

“Promised Land of Heavy Metal” documentary tells the story of Finnish Metal, from its early “underground” days to the present success stories, by interviewing famous musicians, experts and events organizers, a psychiatrist and a doctor of theology. The film takes us literally from the graveyard to the Finnish President's palace! 

Why is Metal a religion for so many? What are it's links to satanism and ritualistic murders? What made Metal mainstream in Finland? Why does the Finnish Church have Metal Masses? What’s the future of Metal, after LORDI won the Eurovision song contest and even the President approves?

We hear strong opinions: some see Metal as the new folk music, while others detest it’s commercial aspect. 

The film is narrated by Kimmo Kuusniemi, a filmmaker, Sarcofagus guitarist and a forefather of Finnish Metal. Kimmo has lived in England for 16 years, and sees the current popularity of Heavy Metal as a strange phenomenon. He was the one who fought for the metal message 30 years ago! What happened in Finland in his absence?

The film is directed by Tanja K Karttunen.

Also available as a DVD with Feature Length 90 minute Film and 2h 47 minutes of Film Extras.

5/5 stars


Great metal documentary. If you are a fan of metal or are open-minded enough to try something different then you should cough up the 2 bucks and watch this doc. Metal documentaries are a dime a dozen. The cool thing about this one is that it is region specific.
