Heavy Trip shows that Finland is the only place still doing Metal right. The film follows a band playing their first real gig the right way. The drummer is an escaped mental patient, they’ve stolen their tour van and they might have a corpse in tow. The police give chase, but it doesn’t matter. This is the land of Ice and Snow. Metal is their only God and the Holy Spirit of Dio will guide them on their way to rock immortality.
If you like quality foreign comedy featuring a band named Impaled Rektum, then this one is for you. A Christmas favorite for years to come!
Please let me know if you watch this with your family at Christmas. I need to be regaled of tales about how your younger relatives learned about Death Metal this Holiday season.
