Turmion Kätilöt

Turmion Kätilöt

We realised only recently that the most questionable band from our neighbouring town Kuopio, Turmion Kätilöt, has never performed at the Ilosaarirock Festival. This slip-up must be corrected immediately. A word of warning, though, before you check them out: this band is not for the younger audiences or for the faint of heart!

Turmion Kätilöt ('The midwives of destruction') play heavy industrial metal where pounding riffs intertwine with elements from electronic music. On stage, their show is penetrated with debauchery and sadomasochistic flavours. It is not far-fetched to say that this band is the poster boy for nihilism. Turmion Kätilöt released their fifth album Technodiktator last year. According to the band, the album pays homage to the pioneers of the 90s dance music. Is there anything else you need to know? These guys are shameless to the bone!
