TROLLFEST ANNOUNCES NEW GUITARIST

Posted: April 4, 2012 in TROLLFEST

We are very sad to announce that due to a very busy schedule TrollfesT’s Per Spelemann (Per-Olav Wiik) has had to quit his role as guitarist with TrollfesT.  We are, however, very happy to announce that his permanent replacement with immediate effect will be St Beinhard (Tor Einar Rogn).  Some of you will already have seen him in our ranks, as we have recently put him through a lengthy and rigorous test drive during three gigs, and he has proved to be an extremely skilled guitarist and an ace vocalist (not to mention a good drinker in the good old fashioned TrollfesT way).

We broke the news to him yesterday, and initiated him into our ranks as an official band member complete with diploma and champagne as you can see from the photo above.  If he looks just a tiny bit bemused, it’s not because of the diploma, it’s because the champagne bottle had a cork in it, and he was wondering how soon he was going to be allowed to open it!

You will get to see him on the Rockefeller Stage at The Inferno Festival in Oslo, Norway at 18:15 on Thursday, and of course on the upcoming tour with Korpiklaani which starts on Friday, so feel free to make him feel welcome (he responds very well to alcoholic beverages).  And if you’d like to give Per Spelemann a farewell hug (he also responds well to alcoholic beverages), he will be on stage with us at Inferno, but as part of the Devil’s Dangleberries and with a name like that who knows what’s going to happen!  Here we all are below:

See you either at Inferno, or somewhere along the road on the upcoming tour – dates below, and if you aren’t able to make it, here’s the rare track we uploaded especially for our fans:
