Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with vocalist Mathias "Vreth" Lillmåns of Finnish folk metallers FINNTROLL on April 25, 2010 before the band's concert at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California. You can now listen to the chat below.
FINNTROLL is currently taking part in a spring North American headlining tour, dubbed "Finnish Metal", with support from MOONSORROW and SWALLOW THE SUN. Brought to you by King Foo Entertainment, the tour is covering over 20 cities in what is hoped to be a yearly event.
"Nifelvind", the new album from FINNTROLL, was released in North America on March 9 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland and was mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The album cover artwork was created once again by the band's guitarist Skrymer.
Commented FINNTROLL in a statement: "'Nifelvind' is the most advanced and mature FINNTROLL album to date, with musical themes ranging from powerful death metal riffs to dark soundtracks, from pounding black metal to groovy '80s pop music. All this is accompanied by our trademark sound, lots of never-before-heard instruments in the metal scene, folklore and legends that make it overall the most versatile album we have created so far."
