Promised Land of Heavy Metal (dir: Kimmo Kuusniemi, Finland 2008, 60 mins)
When Kimmo Kuusniemi’s band Sarcofagus came on the scene in the late 70s, Finnish metal was a small, underground world which rarely registered in the mainstream.

Kimmo returned to his homeland to find out how it all happened.
