Fucking Whore Society

…is the title of the latest Karjalan Sissit album. Karjalan Sissit is a martial industrial act that is “nowadays unavoidable” according to Heathen Harvest. Above is a live video of “Hyi Helevetti (You Are a Whore and Will Always Be)”, recorded 2009-01-05 in Raw, Eskilstuna, Sweden.

According to the information next to this vid on Youtube, Make Pessonen (the Karjalan Sissit-führer, who is a welder) made an instrument just for this occasion. It was a big iron cylinder with a crank, like a tombola but not hollow. It was played by Peter Bjärgö [Of Arcana fame, red.] by using a fork against a big thin metal plate.

Below is a track from the album Karjalasta Karjahtaa (2004), that shows the more bombastic side, contrary to the more industrial sounding one above.

The name Karjalan Sissit has something to do with the Finnish resistance in the second World War. Read this interesting interview from 2007 about how wodka is the best inspiration for Karjalan Sissit among other things.

Make Pessonen is also the driving force behind black metal band The Black, a black metal band that released Alongside Death in 2008, fourteen years after their previous album. And this time without Jon Nödtveidt (Dissection, committed suicide in 2006). Good old school black with a slight touch of melody.
