Timo Rautiainen ja Trio Niskalaukaus (fin. "Timo Rautiainen and Trio Neckshot") was a metal music 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, themes presented in songs include nuclear waste deliveries, the global warming phenomenon, the death of a loved one, the Russian orphan crisis and betrayal among others. They have released 7 albums to date.

For more than 20 years, Timo has made music in the Finnish language. However, when a friend came up to him with the idea of making a German spoken album, Timo became 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 have already been released in Finnish and later translated.

A biographical book about Timo 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.[1] On November 1, 2006, the band announced that they would be breaking up.[2]
