If you’re a fan of Finnish industrial/disco metal, you need look no further than the shock-metal band TURMION KÄTILÖT and 2 TIMES TERROR. These guys have defined their genre, at least in the Finnish-speaking department, with their face paint, unpredictable performances, and clever lyrics. Today’s playlist comes from none other than MC Raaka Pee himself!
