CD/DVD Releases: Finntroll Post New Song Online; Set U.S. Release Date

Posted on Friday, April 13 @ 05:25:33 UTC by nightowl

After many nights of drunken debauchery at Sonic Pump studios, where they certainly overstayed their welcome, Finntroll are proud to bring North America another fine example of their trademark blackened pagan folk metal on April 24. The Trolls from up North have posted online "Korpens Saga," a track taken from their forthcoming album Ur Jordens Djup. Check it out at myspace.com/officialfinntroll.

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, guitarists Skrymer and Routa creating a maelstrom of metal mayhem amidst the pull and sway of pagan polka.

Ur Jordens Djup marks a unique chapter for the band with a new vocalist who will be making his live North American debut in September on a full U.S. tour. 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.
