This is the TrollfesTs eighth album and it‘s a concept album based on old Norwegian fairytales and music.
“Norwegian Fairytales” takes the listener on an exceptional sonic journey through the cloud-dappled mountains and misty air of Norway while providing the essential TrollfesT elements, such as Balkan inspired melodies and rhythms, extreme metal, humor and super catchy hooks. "
Buy the album digitally or physically or stream it in your favorite streamer. Let yourself get carried away with good ol´ TrollfesT madness!
To celebrate the new album, the band proudly presents the music video for the brand new TrollfesT song “Fjøsnissens fanteri”! Check it out here:
The band states about the video:
"This is the opening track from our new album “Norwegian Fairytales” and contains all elements that TrollfesT is known for: brutality, folk melodies, madness, humor and a high level of musicality and instrumental skills. The song is about Fjøsnissen, which is a gnome that lives in every barn in Norway (looks like a small Santa clause). This gnome takes care of the animals at the farm if he is being treated well with food and drinks during Christmas time. So, in tradition the Norwegians set out a pot of porridge every Christmas for the farm Gnome. If he is not being treated well and given food, he can get extremely angry and kill the animals. The video was shot in a nice little abandoned barn we found. The animals that used to live in the barn had already been killed by Fjøsnissen, so no additional animals were hurt during the making of the video."

With eight full-length releases since their inception in 2004, the trollish powerhouse has constantly kept their fans busy with new music and unrivalled live shows, but this time the lyrics on beer orgies performed in their unique “Trollspråk” have made room to the more ambitious topics and legends that the band wisely chose from their ancestral books and performs in Norwegian language.
But fear not, little party goblins! With still tons of high quality entertainment, humour and unbound energy left, TROLLFEST keep their status as the craziest band in the folk metal forest!
