Hot News: Trollfest Reveal First Details And Artwork For Upcoming Sixth Album And Announce Headlining European Tour

Fresh from celebrating their Tenth Anniversary and with two North American tours in one year under their belts, Norway’s TROLLFEST are starting 2014 by announcing details of what will be their sixth full-length album as well as details of their first headlining European tour. The thirteen-track album will be titled “Kaptein Kaos” and is expected to appear on NoiseArt Records on the 28th March. 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 by Terje Johnsen, both long-time collaborators with 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 the fantasy world of Trolls created by TROLLFEST. 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 have 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. “Blasts beats 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 the East European influence for which we are known”.

KORPIKLAANI’S Jonne Järvelä, one of the first people to hear the album, had this to say about it: “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!”

To mark the release of the album TROLLFEST will be embarking on a 16 date headlining tour of Europe in April, which the band have dubbed the “Kaos Over Europe Tour”, supported by FINSTERFORST and CRYPTIC FOREST. Routing as follows:

18.04. Berlin (DE) – Blackland
