Finntroll Set US Release and Tour Dates

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 band has posted "Korpens Saga" on their MySpace page, a track taken from their forthcoming album Ur Jordens Djup online.

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 (see below for dates). 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.
