I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE this band! I have no idea how to pronounce their fourth album release, or understand any of their lyrics…but I do not care! These guys really are pure True Norwegian Balkan Folk Metal.
Forming back in 2004 in Norway, these guys have gone from strength to strength, keeping their sound original, unique, underground and yet highly entertaining. Although they are a Folk Metal Band, trying to categorise this band is impossible as they bring so many sounds and different variations in their albums, with every song being just amazing and individual and having elements Thrash, Death Metal and strong heavy guitar riffs throughout.
This is a band who know how to how fun, which clearly shows in their album covers and artwok!
The production is perfect, with aggressive death metal vocals, heavy guitars, banjo’s, an accordion and Saxophone playing at the same time, you never quite know what you will be listening too next, with one song ‘Karve’ reminding me of my local Mexican Restaurant!
This is a band that clearly has no boundaries or care what they should be playing but do exactly what they want! Trollfest obviously won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I think this is an awesome album and band, with so much going on but manage to pull it together perfectly!
If you don’t know Trollfest, then you are missing out!!
