Finntroll: Midnattens Widunder

Finntroll: Midnattens WidunderCD, Spikefarm 1999

Track list: Intro - Svartberg - RivFader - Vätteanda - Bastuvisan - Blodnatt - Midnattens Widunder - Segersäng - Svampfest

To summarize Finntroll is easy: fast black metal with lots of synths and a good dose of humppa, a Finnish variation of polka. Lyrics are sung in Swedish and are about trolls who are plotting to take over the world and I suppose they execute the plan successfully, as well. And what great fun it all is! If you think black metal is all dead serious and therefore a bit silly, just listen to Finntroll and you can rest assured that even black metal people can sometimes have some fun. *****

Finntroll's unique musical landscape causes reactions of non-comprehension since they actually have created a whole new Black Metal genre..

And Finnish folklores aren't familiar with most people in planet. They're uncomparable, and even Tolkien took his main inspiration from Finnish national epic "KALEVALA", the masterpiece in world literature.
