Finnish disco metal powerhouse Turmion Kätilöt have announced their tenth studio album “Omen X” for release on January 13th, 2023, via Nuclear Blast Records.
To mark the announcement the band have released the video for the album’s first single, the thumping industrial metal anthem “Isä Meidän”.
Watch the video for the new single “Isä Meidän” below. Stream the single here.
“The body of the song was born in one night. You could feel the danger in the song, and dangerous it became. The tunes followed each other until I noticed that five hours had passed after the last chord died. The song became a pleasant stimulus for my brain. It goes from black metal moods to brisk metal rave hypnosis, without forgetting the delicate middle parts and big chorus. With the right equipment, the pace can be deadly”, says MC Raaka Pee, about the new single.
“I don’t really know what I would embellish, or even explain about ‘Isä Meidän’. I wrote straight and direct words that hardly leave any questions. I didn’t want to beat around the bushes. We are all someone’s children. But too often somewhere in life, something in us grows crooked. Rauli and his team summed all this up really wonderfully in the video”, comments Shag-U regarding the new single.

Turmion Kätilöt was formed in 2003 in Finland by MC Raaka Pee and Dj Vastapallo. Soon they were joined by the other members of what would become Turmion Kätilöt: Master Bates, Run-Q, DQ and Spellgoth as a second vocalist. With a couple of line-up changes as Dj Vastapallo left the band in 2009 replaced by Bobby Undertaker on guitars (ex-Deathchain) and Spellgoth leaving in 2017 replaced by Shag-U (Fear Of Domination) on vocals, Turmion Kätilöt has become the mean disco metal machine they are today.
From the very beginning Turmion Kätilöt has had a reputation for being a great live band. Disco beats from the 90’s, stomping metal, melodies, sing-a-longs, you name it – there are no rules. Yet still if you peek under the skin you can find the darkness pointing its finger at you. Their live shows have been praised to be the fiercest and craziest mayhem that can be witnessed creating the twisted world of Turmion Kätilöt.
