FINNTROLL begins recording new album
FINTROLL has officially started recording their 6th album at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki! The currently untitled follow-up to 2010’s masterpiece Nifelvind will be released worldwide through Century Media Records in late March 2013.
In regards to this new album, the band comments on their studio blog (http://yersiniafestis.
“Combining our trademark sound with even more influences from non- traditional genres in metal music, we have created 11 songs which show you everything we want to offer. And boy, wasn’t that one of the hardest tasks for some time. After all, how do you keep your sound fresh, yet familiar, after 6 albums and 15 years?
Curious how the new album really sounds? You can listen to some demo clips here:
If you haven’t heard FINNTROLL before, let Trollhorn (the guy who rarely plays live with the rest of the band) explain: “FINNTROLL is a Finnish metal band, existing since 1997. We have released…ummm, six albums, I guess [it’s actually only 5 albums and 2 EPs so far] and despite of dead members, internal quarrels and constant mischief, we still somehow manage to pull it off. Our musical style is a tint of Black and Death metal combined with Scandinavian and European folk music, spiced with a dose of ska, cartoon-esque-circus-music and whatnot. We also boast occasional Latin music, Psychobilly and Klezmer influences, so it’s kinda hard to explain, really. We are pretty much labeled as ‘Folk Metal’ from the wider perspective, but we’ve never quite felt like belonging there per se. Basically, we don´t even really care and nor should you.”
