BIOGRAPHY

Timo Rautiainen ja Trio Niskalaukaus (fin. “Timo Rautiainen and Trio Neckshot”) is a heavy metal band from Finland, formed in 1997.

The band was led by Timo Rautiainen, leading member of Finnish metallers Lyijykomppania, a band which still has an underground cult following in the scene. The musical influence of the band ranges from Black Sabbath to more modern metal acts. Lyrically, the themes presented in their songs range from global issues (such as global warming, genocide, war and nuclear waste or nuclear weapons left loose) to personal tragedy (such as the death of a loved one, school bullying and suicide), typically in a dark and serious tone. They have released seven albums to date.

For more than 20 years, Rautiainen has made music in the Finnish language. However, when a friend came to him with the idea of making a German spoken album, Rautiainen was very interested. The album produced during this session, In frostigen Tälern (“In Frozen Valleys”) (2001), was the first German album by a Finnish act. In 2004 the band released their second album in German, titled Hartes Land (“Hard Land”). The albums in German basically consist of songs which had already been released in Finnish and later translated.

A visional cue in the band’s album art is that no upper case letters are used in any occasion. Their logo is a hammer crossed with a pickaxe, usually both covered with breeze.

The band has published several music videos, some of them dedicated to (and filmed with) Finnish military serving under KFOR mission in Kosovo.

A biographical book about Rautiainen and his bands was released in 2003. It was written by Finnish journalist Timo Isoaho.

The band announced that it would be going on break for an indefinite period of time as of December 2004. On November 1, 2006, the band announced that they would be breaking up.

In 2017 the band did a comeback. They released their seventh album Lauluja Suomesta.
