Impaled Nazarene is a Finnish extreme metal band that started as black metal but have incorporated grindcore elements, and have grown more towards hardcore punk. The band was infamous for their apparent hatred of the Norwegian black metal scene back the early s; however, the band now seems to have disassociated themselves from that dislike.
Luttinen later affirmed that "We have absolutely nothing against Norwegians. I even made up with Euronymous before he was killed so just forget this thing, it is ancient history". Impaled Nazarene stopped wearing corpse paint in the mids when black metal exploded, with Luttinen explaining that "we felt it was time distance ourselves a bit from the ridiculous ideas and statements that were circulating around the whole scene back then.
And look around, we are not alone who have done this. Even Norwegian bands have dropped paint and other shit and are concentrating on the music instead of childish statements".
With Shock G - Fear Of A Mixed Planet - Bonus Edition release of Suomi Finland PerkeleImpaled Nazarene dropped some of their aggression and made a stylistic shift, but this direction ended with the removal of Kimmo Luttinen from the line-up. Mika Luttinen explained his dissatisfaction with Kimmo and how the band changed under his guidance:.
The bottom line is that Kimmo [Luttinen - Mika's brother and the band's former drummer] changed our style pretty much after the release of Ugra-Karma.
It was his vision of how we should sound, and the rest of us weren't happy at all. It is useless for a band like us to try to be a copy of Danzig or fucking Paradise Lost.
So, after Kimmo was replaced, it was normal for us to go back to what we do best, i. Nobody expected such a release as Latex Cult from us anymore, but we fucking proved that we are still here, doing our thing our way. We can get only nastier. After growing increasingly unpolished in delivery, the band made a shift, beginning with Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele and the accession of Children of Bodom guitarist Alexi Laihotowards a sound that has been described as "a benzedrine -fueled combination of thrash metal and Iron Maiden ".
Their ninth studio album, Pro Patria Finlandiawas a popular import album for Japan. On 16 Marchguitarist Teemu Raimoranta died falling off a bridge onto the ice below, in what was described as "an alcohol-related accidental fall". For most of their history, Impaled Nazarene has focused on Finnish nationalism for instance in their song "Total War - Winter War" about the Soviet-Finnish war in andand have demonstrated a strong anti-communist bent, as exemplified in their song "Healers of the Red Plague" on Rapture.
When asked about the hints of humour previously manifest in the lyrics, Luttinen affirmed that this was limited to Suomi Finland Perkele : "There will be no humour, we are not some fucking joke.
If people find my lyrics funny, then, well, something is most certainly wrong in their heads". Our very first Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele was called Goat Perversion. And then it continued [ We want goat songs". So I said "Okay, you want goat songs, and so goat songs you shall get! The goat songs will have Satan, the goat songs with have goats, the goat songs will have bleeding rectums, they will have blood, shit, all things that we all love and like.
Impaled Nazarene's Nihil is the only album that has been subject to a ban. However, this has caused additional problems for the band as, according to Luttinen, Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele seem to have really something against us and unfortunately that somebody has power enough to get our shows cancelled". In response to a question about the lack of sexual themes on ManifestLuttinen responded:.
There was no need to write about pussies or fucking. There was a need to point out certain things to braindead Germans. History repeats itself in Germany right now and where shall all this end?
We are supposed to have same common laws inside [the] European Union but at the same time countries Daniel Blotox & DaweOne - Every Girl Is A Bitch Germany or Poland can do whatever they want to.
It makes no sense to us. In June the hardcore festival Ieperfest in Ieper, Belgium, removed Impaled Nazarene from the line up after threats of violence from protesters. Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele reason for the protest was the band's lyrics condoning homophobia and rape. The festival organizers issued the following statement:. Otherwise we can no longer guarantee everyone's safety at our beloved Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele.
