Verjnuarmu is a heavy metal band from Finland singing in the Savo dialect of the Finnish language.

Performing in a dialect is rare in the Finnish heavy metal scene. Sometimes their style is dubbed as "Savo metal". According to Viitakemies, one of the guitarists of the band, their greatest influences musically are death metal, traditional heavy metal, and traditional folk music.[1]

Their full-length debut album, Muanpiällinen Helevetti, was released in 2006 under Universal Music Finland. In 2008, the band signed to the Finnish metal label Dynamic Arts Records and released their second album, Ruatokansan Uamunkoetto.
