Trollfest Announces Lineup Changes

Trollfest has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with two members:

"Time to unveil the new promo photos and you must be wondering why there are two of us missing. Well, we’ve had to bid a fond farewell to two of our members whose personal and work commitments meant that they could no longer dedicate the amount of time needed for a band that’s as active as TrollfesT. So please join us in wishing PsychoTroll and St Beinhard lots of luck for the future. We have lots of musicians waiting to fill in on stage for us, some of whom you know and love, some of whom you don’t know yet, but you’re bound to love them once you do.

"And don’t worry everyone, as you can see from the photo we’ve been celebrating the next phase in TrollfesT’s career. All of us are having the time of our lives not only because we get to play the music we want. Not only because we get to work with the fantastic people at our label NoiseArt, our Booking Agency Rock the Nation and our Manager Patricia Thomas. Not only because we get to travel round and share the stage with some fantastic bands. But also because we get to meet all of you (well some of you anyway), and you are the best fans that any band could have.

"So put our party photo up on your screens, blow up a few balloons, put on your party hats and pretend you’re sitting round the table with us making a mess of your beards with the cream cakes and getting happily drunk on the beer (naked hairy legs optional).

"Skäll everyone to a bigger, brighter, and better future with Trollfest. Love, kisses, hugs and other manly things from

Trollmannen
Mr. Seidel
Manskow
Drekka Dag
Trollbank

"And remember, as Drekka Dag is saying below 'TrollfesT wants YOU' – or Trollmannen will break your window." More...

Trollfest Details New LP "Brumlebassen"

Norwegian folk metal band Trollfest has announced further details on the band's upcoming fifth LP "Brumlebassen." The album "tells a story about one of the characters that inhabit the fantastical universe created by the band. his time the story is about Brumlebassen, the Bee Keeper, whose task it is to care for the bees and brew the Honey Mead that is much loved by the Trolls.

Trollfest, known for it's exuberant stage performances which have won over myriads of fans wherever they play, recently announced that Tor Einar Rognhave (stage name St Beinhard) would be joining the band as a permanent member, to replace Per-Olav Wiik, whose personal commitments no longer allowed him the time needed for the extensive schedule of live appearances. Immediately after the performance at Norway’s Inferno Festival, the band will embark on a 20-date European tour with Korpiklaani, followed by appearances at ExtremeFest in Austria, Germany and Switzerland in July, MetalCamp in Slovenia in August (where something special has been planned), and the Heidenfest Tour in Europe in October and November.

Trollfest Streaming Re-Recorded Early Song

Norway’s Trollfest is streaming a track dating back to the early days of the band’s existence, but which has never been released, although fans familiar with the Trollfest’s exuberant live appearances may have heard the track before.

The band’s decision to make the track available a few months before the release of the upcoming fifth full-length album is best summed up by the close, and very interactive relationship TrollfesT has developed with its fans over the years:

“While we were in the studio recording our new album we wanted to do something for all our fans while they wait for the release of 'Brumlebassen.' One of the songs that often features in our live set is 'Skogsfest,' which happens to be the third song we ever wrote, and was a part of an early TrollfesT promo that was never released. We know that this is a popular song with the audience at our shows, so we came up with the idea of re-recording it, and uploading it so that everyone can listen to it (it will not appear on the new album). And that’s exactly what we did! So if you’re coming to see us (and raise a few glasses together) on the Korpiklaani tour you may hear it then. But if you’re not, then you’re not going to miss out, because here it is – from us, to you."

Forgotten Tomb Confirmed For Extremefest 2012

Extremefest 2012 will take place in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland on the following dates:

5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 DE – Hünxe, ExtremeFest Germany
5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 AT – Salzburg, ExtremeFest Austria
5. July 2012 – 7. July 2012 CH – Pratteln, ExtremeFest Switzerland

The organizers of Extremefest have now issued the following announcement about confirming Forgotten Tomb and Ultrawurscht:

"Forgotten Tomb been around since 1999 and the Italians have caused quite a stir in the black and dark metal underground! 'Songs To Leave' (2002) or 'Love`s Burial Ground' (2004) are rightfully considered milestones of melancholic dark metal that the fourpiece infuses with doom and black metal elements. In 2011, Forgotten Tomb released their most recent effort 'Under Saturn Retrograde' and fans can look forward to one of the rare appearances of the Italians at the Austrian and German editions of Extremefest!

"It´s all about the sausage with Bavarian / Austrian act Ultrawurscht! Their highly explosive mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore – or simply 'Wurschtcore' – will one day conquer the world, and if you had the chance to check out albums such as 'Cheese Ass Built My Hot Dog' you`ll agree! Mixing metal and sausages should be declared a form of art anyway, so slap some wieners on the grill before checking out Ultrawurscht`s exclusive set at the Austrian edition of the Extremefest 2012!"

So far these bands have been confirmed to play Extremefest 2012: More...

Trollfest Posts First Studio Update Of The Year

Norway's Trollfest has checked in with the following first 2012 studio update about the band's time working on the new "Brumlebassen" album:

"Alright, we are back in the studio! First studio day in 2012, so why not celebrate it with some gooood Pokal-beer!

"As always, Manskow Production is documenting every move and every sip of beer. This day was mostly spent on recording more choir, vocals and also some soundeffects (like cheering, opening bottles, drinking, you know, all those cosy sounds from a party). Trollmannen also wrote the lyrics for the last unfinished song and manage to record the vocals aswell. So it was a really productive day!

"Here you see Trollmannen busy trying out TrollBANK many many bells. Used as percussion and soundeffects throughout the album.

"We are getting really close to a finished album now! We have booked StrandStudio for mixing in mid February, so just a month left of recording and we are done! Wehuuu!!!"

Trollfest Issues New Recording Update

Norway's Trollfest has checked in from the studio again with the following update about recording the upcoming "Brumlebassen" album:

"Hello fellow drunks bloggers!! Last few days have been spent mostly drinking and recording percussion and acoustic string instruments. Every melody on the album needs to be recorded multiply times with different instruments. So its a very time consuming process, So we desperately needs to lubricate our joints with lots of beer and Gin Tonic to endure the insane pressure (of death and misery!).

"Manskow and Trollmannen have been very busy (and drunk) recording all kind of percussion like tambourine, maracas, eggs, darbuka, djembé, And it really sounds like we have been visited be some ancient tribes doing some sort of mad and sacrificial mating ritual (of death and misery)!!

"Mr. Seidel has been mostly eating chips, but has also contributed with some insane and smooth guitar and Bouzouki shit. More...
