Weird and wonderful metal monsters Finntroll have revealed new record Nifelvind will be released next February and the band is promising its most diverse work to date.
Recorded at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios, the album’s cover artwork was again supplied by the band’s own guitarist Skrymer.
And the doom-laden Finns explained: “After tough and hectic weeks in the studio, due to lack of time and summer festivals, we are now really, really pleased with the results. “Nifelvind is the most advanced and mature Finntroll-album to date, with musical themes ranging from powerful death metal riffs to dark soundtracks, from pounding black metal to groovy 80s pop-music.
“All this is accompanied by our trademark sound, lots of never-before-heard instruments in the metal scene, folklore and legends that make it overall the most versatile album we have created so far.” Well you can’t say fairer than that!
Out on February 22 the full tracklist for Nifelvind is as follows:
1. Blodmarsch (intro)
3. Den Frusna Munnen
4. Ett Norrskensdåd
5. I Trädens Sång
6. Tiden Utan Tid
8. Mot Skuggornas Värld
9. Under Bergets Rot
