NEW MUSIC VIDEO FROM NORWAY’S TROLLFEST + SECOND INSTALMENT OF FANS Q & A VIDEO SESSION

Posted: September 29, 2011 in OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES, TROLLFEST

Norway’s TROLLFEST has today released a video for the track “Karve” from the band’s latest album “En Kvest For Den Hellige Gral”.  Made by Manskow Productions, the video was filmed in Super 8, and shows scenes of the band performing at a neighbourhood barbeque in the company of family and friends, including members of PANTHEON I and DEAD TROOPER, as well as fans who had heard about the filming and turned up to enjoy the fun.  As Manskow himself is actually TROLLFEST’s accordionist, Oslo-based Romanian photographer and writer Andrea Chirulescu assisted with the video, which can be seen below:

 

“En Kvest For Den Hellige Gral”, was released on NoiseArt Records in April of this year, and since then TROLLFEST, whose line up drawn from bands such as URGEHAL, PANTHEON I, UNTIME, MELCH, SARKOM, HALLUCINATIONS and POWERSWORD has been sharing its particular brand of exuberance and fun with festival goers in Europe.  With members who between them are able to  play a selection of unusual instruments from a variety of countries which are more  typically used in folk music, as well as the more standard instruments you would expect from a metal band, TROLLFEST manages  to somehow blend folk music sounds from their native Norway and from the Balkans, with the sinuous and seductive melodies of the Middle East and lively Hispanic rhythms, all mixed in with a healthy dose of pure headbanging metal to produce what the band themselves define as “True Norwegian Balkan Metal”.  TROLLFEST will hit the road on the 30th September as part of this year’s Heidenfest tour along with FINNTROLL, TURISAS, ALESTORM, ARKONA and SKÁLMÖLD.  Tour itinerary as follows:
