Released by Bloody Disgusting and Doppelganger Releasing back in 2018, the heavy metal comedy Heavy Trip is getting a sequel, Metal Hammer has announced this afternoon!

Juuso Laatio and Jukka Vidgren, who co-wrote and co-directed Heavy Trip, are both coming back for Heavy Trip 2, the duo has revealed in a new chat with the website.

“It’s in the works,” they tell Metal Hammer. “We’ve written a really good script and we were supposed to film it this summer. We’re aiming to film it next year. You never know. The last film took six years so I hope this one doesn’t take so long!”

The hilarious Finnish comedy is in the vein of Airheads – if the band were a young Dethklok from “Metalocalypse”. It’s about a small-town Finnish heavy metal band that blasts its way out of the quiet countryside for a big debut gig in Norway.

Stay tuned for more on Heavy Trip 2 as we learn it!

Here is a taste of the rave reviews for the first movie….

Birth.Movies.Death’s Marisa Mirabal gave the horns of approval, “Heavy Trip solidifies its place among other beloved metal genre films by summoning a dark comedy that even those who aren’t familiar with Pantera, Children of Bodom, or Uruguayan grindcore can throw their horns up and enjoy.”

“Wail loud, scream proud and support this kooky exploratory import that’s worth one hell of a night with rocksteady friends, horns in the air, until the final credits roll,” added Slashfilm’s Matt Donato.

“Part let’s-get-it-together band saga and part road movie, the story arc is awfully familiar, but that doesn’t stop it being a rollicking romp,” included The Hollywood Reporter.

Daily Dead‘s Heather Wixson writes, “Heavy Metal plays out like a mix of Airheads meets Little Miss Sunshine and it just left me with a big, goofy grin once it was over,” while Morbidly Beautiful calls it “pure cinematic joy.”

The Daily Grindhouse declared it “the best rock and roll film in at least a decade.”
