Finnish Black Thrash

Impaled Nazarene and Ominous - PRKL Club, Helsinki, 31/05/14

Impaled Nazarene are credited as one of the pioneers of the Finnish Black Metal scene, and have never been far from controversy in their 24 years as a band. Last Saturday they brought their merciless black metal, with that contagious hint of grinding punk, to the PRKL club in Helsinki. Opening for them was the blackened death/thrash assault of fellow Finns, Ominous.
