Band Biography

THE WORD 'unique' tends to be banded about quite a lot these days, but in the case of Finntroll it really does apply - both musically & visually!

What we have here, and have had since 1997, is a 'Trollish horde' intent on touring the known world with their own particular brand of music i.e. Finnish hoedown (or 'humppa') mixed with folky black metal. I guess you'd have to cite 'Trollhammaren' (from the 2004 album 'Nattfodd') as their most celebrated call to arms, and the video made in its honour is well worth checking out too, But the simple fact remains that the Troll's 10-year-plus career is packed full of great songs, which is all the more impressive given that they've had to endure more than their fair share of setback & tragedy over the years.

But we won't dwell on that here. Instead, let's hone in on the second Finntroll album, 2001's 'Jaktens Tid' ('The Time Of The Hunt'), a classic record from first note to last, with 'Fodosagan' instantly pushing aside the competition courtesy of a riff that grabs hold and just never lets go. A Top 20 success in Finland, this is probably a good place to start if you're a Trollish tenderfoot, but 2006 release 'Ur Jordens Djup' ('From The Depths Of The Earth') is also something of a cracker, and let's not forget about the aforementioned 'Nattfodd'...

In short, if you're a lover of underground music (and underground living), then Finntroll won't let you down.
