Finntroll

Finntroll is an extreme metal/folk metal band from Helsinki, Finland. They combine elements of black metal and death metal withtype of Finnish folk music called "Humppa". Finntroll's lyrics are mostly in Swedish, the only exception being the song "MadonLaulu" (in Finnish) on Visor Om Slutet.

Despiteseveral vocalist changes, this tradition has since been continued.

Despiteseveral vocalist changes, this tradition has since been continued.

According to band members Vreth and Skrymer, they took their name from an old Finnish legend where Swedish priests coming toFinland had an encounter with a wild-looking man who killed most of their party. The survivors came back bearing the tale of theFinn-Troll.

As of March 2013, the band's discography includes 5 full-length albums and 3 EPs. A fifth album is already finished and waitingfor its release in late March.
