FINNTROLL Announce Debut Live Album ‘Natten Med De Levande Finntroll’ (Night With The Living Finntroll)


Recorded at the prestigious Melkweg in Amsterdam and mixed & mastered by the legendary Finnish team of Mikko Karmila & Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, etc.), ‘Natten Med De Levande…’ is Finntroll’s first live album, showing this hugely influential outfit where they function best – onstage and in the raw.


Featuring 19 rabble-rousin’ anthems, including the ultimate camp-fire call-to-arms that is ‘Trollhammaren’ (a Top 5 Finnish single/ video from 2004), ‘Natten Med De Levande…’ perfectly showcases Finntroll’s unholy hybrid style: traditional Finnish music (‘humppa’) mixed with full-tilt heavy, folk & black metal, plus a lyrical stance rooted in tradition, myth and the way of the Troll!


It’s a ‘hoedown from hell’ approach that has seen the Finns topping the bill at major festivals and notching up a series of internationally successful studio albums & EPs, stretching back to late ’90s.


In short, ‘Natten Med De Levande…’ stands as true testament to a band who have survived adversity (the death of co-founder Somnium in 2003) to become one of the metal scene’s most consistently colourful and entertaining acts.


“Lock up your daughters, kegs of rum and men of God, for The Trolls from Up North are coming for you… live!”


‘Natten Med De Levande Finntroll’ is due for release on June 16th via Spinefarm Records.
