Turo is stuck in a small village in Northern Finland. The only glimpses of light in his life are provided by his amateur metal band. He and his friends have played for 12 years without having a single gig. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway: the head of Northern Damnation, a huge metal festival. They decide that it's now or never. After a miserable warm-up gig, Impaled Rektum breaks up just to get together again. They steal a van, a corpse, and a coffin from the local cemetery, a new drummer from the local mental hospital and flee to Norway. As they are escaping Finnish police, they have to face the Norwegian Army and its notorious vikings in order to get to play their first real gig.
