Turmion Kätilöt (literally "Midwives of Ruin" or "Midwives of Perdition") is a Finnish industrial metal band founded in 2003 by MC Raaka Pee and DJ Vastapallo, who until the latter's departure, were the only studio lineup. The live line-up adds Spellgoth (Trollheim's Grott, Horna), Master Bates, RunQ (Tarot, Eternal Tears of Sorrow) and DQ.

Biography[edit]

The band had a recording contract with Spinefarm Records (specifically Ranka Recordings), and their second full-length album, Pirun nyrkki, was released on March 29, 2006. Shortly after a dispute over income developed between the band and Spinefarm, with the band filing a lawsuit against the label. During the ongoing case, a new album, U.S.C.H.!, was released for free download[citation needed] on 11 June 2008. A new single, Minä määrään ("I Rule"), was also released for free before the album, on May 21.

On March 9 the group posted a statement on their website, clarifying the arguments between the band and their former record company Spinefarm Records had been settled, but stated that the terms of the agreement meant they could not discuss the matter further. U.S.C.H.! was released physically on 20 May 2009 including 2 bonus tracks.

On December 07 2012, lead vocalist Turunen suffered a stroke. The band was on small hiatus, but returned at 22. January 2013 and revealed that a new album is coming out next autumn. On 4th of April 2013 the band released a new single titled Jalopiina in 2 different forms; as a purchasable single or as a free download on their website. During the first day after the release, the Finnish record shop Levykauppa X held a campaign where the single was legally stealable.[1]
