Staff review by
Under the file "Metal Eccentricities" Finntroll figures as a top contender, these Finns have managed the way to create playful yet aggressive music, using as a base a Finnish polka rhythm called Hummpa, the wide array of instruments these trolls use is quite amazing, to name a few I would have to say accordion, mouth harp, flutes, clarinets, herty gerties even a honky-tonk piano.

This is folk metal.....most "folk metal" bands are some other form of metal, be it heavy, power, black, etc, plus folky melodies of folk instruments....but i think a metal genre is in the riffs...and the humpa riffs make it folk metal

First Folk Metal album I ever bought. It's still my favourite of theirs, I love Wilska's vocals. it's a shame he only did one full length album with them.

Nice album. I really like Människopesten and Det Iskalla Trollblodet and Trollhammaren is surely a great hit song. But for me most of the songs are still weaker than on the early albums.

I recently revisited this album after not listening to it thoroughly for probably five years. It was a great reminder of why I love Finntroll. I haven't been much into them in a while, but this album will always hold a special place. I liked the next album, "Ur Jordens Djup," a lot but for other reasons. Nothing they have done since "Nattfodd" though has quite captured the perfect mix of darkness, atmospheric but not overly cheesy keyboards and a certain anger.

This is my favorite Finntroll album. Trollhammaren is their best song in my opinion and I can listen to this album over and over and never get tired of it. In my opinion it's a masterpiece just like Jaktens Tid.
