TROLLFEST just successfully played three EXTREMEFEST events in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and have proved once more to be one of the best live bands on the planet! Last week they uploaded the brand new song „Illsint“ as a free MP3 download for all their fans and now the so-called „bee-ology“ along with an exclusive booklet preview is available, too.
Check out the preview coming from the breathtakingly amazing CD artwork sleeve of „Brumlebassen“, created by the band and designer Terje Johnsen. Unique, outstanding, mindblowing!
Here the band´s explanation to the „bee-ology“, which is the main theme of the album sleeve:
„Seeing as one of Brumlebassen’s deepest passions is to educate the world about bees and bugs, we in TrollfesT felt obliged to help him in his quest by including a booklet in our new album. Working together with a Swede and a Norwegian in order to guarantee Cultural Diversity the only thing missing to make it truly educational and ready for use in schools, was a heavyweight academic professor. Thankfully our dear friend Dr. B. Bassen weighs in at about 650 kilos and is a universally respected Doctor of Biology. He has a first degree burn and held the chair as Professor of Bees at the world renowned Bees’n’Bullshit University. Needless to say, his contribution has made this book(let) an easy to understand, all around informative and very very readable delight that will help anyone wishing to learn (or not learn) about Bees. Illustrated in sumptuous full spectrum Technicolor it contains an abundance of never before seen pictures of species previously unknown to science, making it a veritable feast for the eyes. There is also an English language guide for those who don’t give a flying fuck about fictional languages. From the kids in primary school to the old fart in the shed, everyone will learn something new, rediscover something old and generally experience a strong sense of liquid well-being.“ TROLLFEST

With artwork by the Swedish cartoonist Jonas Darnell, who originally created the iconic metal duck from TROLLFEST’s “Villanden” album, and design by Terje Johnsen, the 13-track “Brumlebassen” is set for release on NoiseArt Records on August 24 of this year in both limited edition digipack format and gatefold vinyl.
The band are also confirmed to play METALCAMP as well as this year´s edition of HEIDENFEST alongside Wintersun, Korpiklaani and others.
