Finnish metallers TERÄSBETONI have been selected to represent Finland in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. TERÄSBETONI won the Finnish national selection with the song "Missä miehet ratsastaa" and will represent the country in the semifinal of the 53rd Eurovision Song Contest on May 20 in Belgrade, Serbia. The band scored a runaway victory in the super-final of the Finnish national final on Saturday, March 1. They picked up 38.9% of the votes, outstripping their nearest rival KARI TAPIO, who scored 33.9%, according to Kainuun Sanomat.

A video of TERÄSBETONI performing "Missä miehet ratsastaa" (which was composed by the band's vocalist/bassist, Jarkko Ahola) on Finnish TV can be viewed below.

TERÄSBETONI's new album, entitled "Myrskyntuoja", is is scheduled for release on March 19 via Warner Music Finland. The CD was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, APOCALYPTICA, THE 69 EYES), who previously worked with TERÄSBETONI on the group's last album, the gold-certified (in Finland) "Vaadimme metallia", which came out in 2006.
