TROLLFEST, the self-proclaimed “true Norwegian Balkan metal” band, will release its new album, “Brumlebassen”, on August 24 via NoiseArt Records.
A track-by-track breakdown of the CD’s 12 songs by the members of the group can be seen below.
Responsible once again for the amazing images that vividly depict the story of what will be the band’s fifth full-length album, is Swedish cartoonist Jonas Darnell, who originally created the iconic metal duck from TROLLFEST‘s “Villanden” album, and has worked with the band ever since. Terje Johnsen, who has been working on the design side of TROLLFEST‘s releases since the “Brakebein” album, has once again teamed up with Darnell to produce the finished package.
Track listing for “Brumlebassen”, which will be available as a gatefold vinyl and limited digipack including 12 tracks plus a bonus cut, is as follows:
02. Böse Tivoli
05. Finsken, Norsken and Presten
06. Mystisk Maskert
07. Apis Mellifera
09. Verboten Kjærleik
12. Rundt Bålet
13. Konterbier (bonus track)
The “TrinkenTroll” video can be seen below.
Commented the band: “The [‘TrinkenTroll’] video was filmed at the Unholy metal pub in Oslo and we invited various people — friends, friends of friends — but word got around that we were going to be filming a music video and people just turned up to take part. Everyone really started getting into the swing of things with the entire shoot turning into one big party and inevitably a lot of good natured drunkenness ensued so what you see in the video is not ‘acting’ at all, hehe!”
TROLLFEST recently parted ways with bassist PsychoTroll and guitarist St Beinhard because “they could no longer dedicate the amount of time needed for a band that’s as active as TROLLFEST.”
Commented the remaining members of the group: “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.”
