Trollfest - Biography




TrollfesT was funded in Oslo, Norway during the best alcoholic hours one weekend in 2004, after the members had gotten tired of the party music available, and decided to take matters into their own hands.

A website and six songs later, a German record label, at the time named Solistitium, made contact, and said he saw potential in the madness. The goons of TrollfesT thought "what the heck, let's give it a go", said yes to a deal, and started making new material. The result: "Willkommen Folk tell Drekka Fest !!" was released in 2005.

Barking about and laughing at people for coming to late to a party, made the record have some quite unique qualities for the genre that caught peoples attention, so after selling a lot of albums, a deal for a second album was made.

In 2006, the story of the Troll Brakebein was released, reasonably named "Brakebein". The record was released in two versions. One, containing a cartoon displaying Brakebeins voyage, the other displaying the lyrics.

During these starting years, live gigs had not been performed at all, still TrollfesT managed to achieve enough status through these two records to make them self somewhat of a wanted element on festivals. The first offer to go past the planning stage, resulted in a performance as one of the headlining bands on the ninth Barther Metal Openair in 2007.

TrollfesTs closest genre definition would have to be something like to describe them as a "Happy-go-lucky, party, Troll, folk-black Metal band". Off course with influences from even more genres. This year, while also working on a third studio album, TrollfesT will be seen a lot more one the live scene round and about. Some dates are confirmed, and some are being processed as we speak.

Either way, TrollfesTs focus of alcohol, joy and music, seems to have drawn a lot of peoples attention, and as the band knows how to deal with an audience, there's more to come for those who wait!
