Oulu, Finland (1990 – present)

Impaled Nazarene, hailing from Oulu, Finland was formed in 1990.

November 1990: The first line-up is Mika Luttinen-vocals, Kimmo Luttinen-drums, Mika Pääkkö-guitar, Ari Holappa-guitar and Antti Pihkala-bass. The band starts rehearsing their own material, first ever I.N. song written is Condemned To Hell. The band also starts playing The Crucified & Morbid Fate, both old Mutilation tracks (Previous band of Luttinen bros.)

February 1991: Impaled Nazarene records their first rehearsal demo tape Shemhamforash. Sound is downright horrible due to the fact it was recorded with a two-track deck. Antti Pihkala is replaced with Harri Halonen on bass.

April 1991: First show, opening for Beherit in Kempele, Finland.

Summer 1991: Impaled Nazarene plays their 2nd show w/ Sentenced. The band enters TicoTico studio in Kemi in August to record their first official studio demo tape Taog Eht Fo Htao Eht and starts to gain name in the underground circles. Impaled Nazarene takes part in Day Of Darkness festival in Oulu together with Amorphis, Belial etc.

October 1991: The band records their infamous Goat Perversion 7” ep for the Italian company.

Winter ‘91-Spring ‘92: Both Holappa & Halonen leave the band due to lack of interest. Impaled Nazarene performs a couple of live shows in Finland as a three piece unit. Lots of controversy results because of their live show. The band signs with blood to french label Osmose Productions.

    So how's the new album? I've yet to acquire it, but from the sounds of the preview video, it's even better than Road to the Octagon.

    Hyvä keikka oli Joensuussa perjantaina. Hävettää että porukkaa ei ollut saapunut paikalle, ehkä ne oli pitkän perjantain jumalanpalveluksessa :D
