TROLLFEST – New album details and tour dates!

+ from this author

Fresh from celebrating their tenth anniversary and with two North American tours in one year under their belts, TROLLFEST are starting 2014 by announcing some juicy album and tour details!!! Their sixth album “Kaptein Kaos” is expected to appear on NoiseArt Records on March 28. Recorded at the dUb Studio in Oslo and at the “Trollskogen Recording Facilities”, the album has been mixed by Endre Kirkesola.  Once again, the striking artwork is by Swedish Cartoonist Jonas Darnell and design Terje Johnsen, both long-time collaborators of the band.  Track list for “Kaptein Kaos” is as follows:

 

1.  Trolltramp

2.  Kaptein Kaos

3.  Vulkan

4.  Ave Maria

5.  Filzlaus Verkündiger

6.  Die Grosse Echsen

7.  Seduction suit no.21

8.  Solskinnsmedisin

9.  Troll Gegen Mann

10. Sagn Om Stein

11. Renkespill

12. Kinesisk Alkymi

13. Døden banker på

 

Like previous albums, ”Kaptein Kaos” is set in a fantasy world of trolls. It tells the story of the Kaptein Kaos, who, according to the band ”is an inventor who creates a time machine and goes on an expedition across time to see some sights, taste some stuff and has some fun in ways that are exclusively available to people with time machines”. Musically though, it seems that this time TROLLFEST have slightly changed direction.  “Blastbeats and screaming” says the band “have given way to juicy rock grooves and rich melody lines, and the world music influence, which has been our trademark both in our use of instruments as well as melodies, has expanded to include tango rhythms, Asian and Scandinavian folk music as well, of course, as our Eastern European influences for which we are known.”

 

KORPIKLAANI’s Jonne Järvelä praises the album: “TROLLFEST are even more catchy, more melodic and more twisted than ever with their new ”Kaptein Kaos” album.  I really like its (good way) sick arrangements and instrumentation. Vocals are extremely variable and I never heard anything like this before. My personal highlight on the album is a song called ”Solskinnsmedisin”. Unbelievable album!”

Catch TROLLFEST on their European headlining run dubbed “Kaos Over Europe Tour”!
