With renewed vigor and a fiery new frontman, Finnish cult icons FINNTROLL crawl up from their clammy cavern clutching their fifth full-length Ur Jordens Djup, which was released this past spring. FINNTROLL will now bring their trademark blackened pagan folk metal over to North America on Sept. 18th for a massive fall headlining tour. See below for their complete itinerary.
The Trolls have posted the eye-popping new video for the track, “Nedgang,” on their official MySpace page (http://myspace.com/officialfinntroll). You don’t want to miss out on this.
Under the guidance of producer extraordinaire Nino Laurenne, who has similarly assisted goth legends Nightwish and Amorphis, FINNTROLL have crafted their most consistent concoction of cavernous chaos yet, including a 13-minute closer. The effort is drenched in atmosphere, with guitarists Skrymer and Routa creating a maelstrom of metal mayhem amidst the pull and sway of pagan polka.
The album marks a unique chapter for the band with a new vocalist who will be making his live North American debut in September. With former vocalist Wilska’s departure in 2006, the remaining members scoured their native homeland for a suitable replacement, only to stumble upon the like-minded and equally inebriated Vreth. After a few pints, a number of wild practice sessions and a covert initiation rite, FINNTROLL welcomed Vreth with open arms. You won’t want to miss Vreth and the gang when they hit your town.
