Finntrolz – Nattfodd CD and Trollhammaren EP (Spinefarm)

This great band, recorded two new albums under the auspices of misfortune: in March 2003 Finntrollz founding member, Somnium (ex. Impaled Nazarene, ex. Barathrum, ex. Thy Serpent) died and the band came to the verge of breaking up. But now, they are back with two new albums, continuing their previous work “Visor om slutet” into experimental/acoustic soundscapes with traditional riffs and folk line, some Russian influences, choir, some Viking echoes that makes me thing that they are attacking a ship or a village, everything made in a very pleasing manner, almost like a fairytale. With a good sound and nice covers, these albums will become references in the metal aria. So, I guess they’ve guided themselves after a very old saying: “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”!!!
