TROLLFEST BEGIN RECORDING SIXTH FULL-LENGTH ALBUM

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 28th June 2013 by Contra Mundi

Trollfest, whose music sounds like a combination of folk, metal, madness and an 80’s game soundtrack (Editor: So, something absolutely kickass then?!) have begun recording their sixth studio album. So far, they have the drum tracks nailed and have something a little different to offer their fans this time around. Trollfest had this to say:

We will record eleven metal tracks and we also have a couple of acoustic songs up our sleeves, but at this stage obviously we are not sure which ones will make it onto the album.  We will, however, be taking a slightly different musical direction with this album.  The sound will undoubtedly beTrollfest, but it will vary from our last two releases.   We will also be using a different studio this time.  We have been more than happy with the Strand Studio who did an amazing job on En Kvest For Den Hellige Gral and Brumlebassen but we just wanted to get a different sound to match our new musical direction so we decided to use Endre Kirkesola’s Dub Studio in Oslo.

With their self-proclaimed musical brand of ‘True Norwegian Balkan Metal’ which sounds like a tongue in cheek acknowledgement of the ‘True Norwegian Black Metal’ slogan bands such as Gorgoroth and Carpathian Forest sport, Trollfest have a steadily increasing fan base and a proactive attitude to their music performance and production. Having seven members that have already made their name in prestigious Black and Extreme metal bands, their combined ability with a variety of instruments from all corners of the world is extremely impressive.

They have so far in 2013 played a number of festivals and enjoyed a tour of North America as part of legendary Paganfest America Tour. Expect to see them unfurl their joyful madness at the Masters of Rock and Wolfszeit Festivals and be sure to catch sight of their spectacle.

To celebrate Trollfest’s 10th anniversary, the band have released a limited edition 12” picture disc named A Decade of Drekkadence; which includes 16 tracks of new and previously unreleased material spanning the band’s career. There are also three covers, including songs from Tom Waits and Britney Spears which will undoubtedly be terrific. The artwork on the disc is a creation from collaborators Swedish Cartoonist Jonas Darnell and designer Terje Johnsen who have worked with Trollfest in the past and is quite something to behold in terms of uniqueness. The vinyl also includes an email address that purchasers can contact to receive an MP3 download.

The album will be released on NoiseArt Records. The album is available exclusively from this location. A video for the Spears track “Toxic” was recently released and can be seen below.
