Finntroll

If the nickname "trollish metal" was invented to qualify its style, Finntroll has produced a more complex discography than is often thought during its twenty years of career. The festive and brawling rowdiness, paced by the humppas of their early years did not stop the musicians from exploring darker and more epic horizons with their opus Ur jordens djup or Nifelvind. An unquestionable pillar of folk metal, the group has never been confined to this scene. Finntroll dares, it creates as it sees fit, and this freedom of mind is probably one of the keys to its longevity. Humor and seriousness, brutality and melodies, the Finns have forged themselves one of the most varied musical arsenals which contains endless possibilities and surprises in concert.
