FINNTROLL Prepares for North American Invasion this Fall; Post New Video Online

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 (

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.
