Finntroll combines the dark world of black metal with the cheerfulness of Finnish polka into an extremely entertaining whole. As if a gang of drunk trolls are trying to sing a happy tune with a throat that will make the average Orc jealous. In the "folk mouth", this bizarre and unique danceable music combination is also called "humppa".
The trolls of Nordic folklore are believed to be giant ugly and unfriendly supernatural creatures with tremendous strength and appetite. Finntroll, however, is especially feared for their unquenchable thirst for booze.
This Finnish troll gang just hurled the first single from the (very) highly anticipated seventh studio album into the dark world. Their first album in seven years! "Vredesvävd" will see the light of day on September 18th, the title translates to "Wrath-woven", which aptly indicates what this intensely fierce, brutally gloomy record is about.
On Thursday, March 18, this bunch of irregularities will come to Amsterdam. Don't say we didn't warn you!
