Finntroll:  announce "Blodsvept Over Europe Tour 2013"
The trolls of Nordic folklore are believed to be dirty creatures of enormous strength and appetite. Their grotesque physique grants them a comic element, although the humour tends to be on the grim side as these nocturne beings hunger for human flesh. Unsurprisingly, this has earned them a rather bad reputation. All things considered, FINNTROLL are the perfect embodiment of all aforementioned sentiments - although one might want to replace the hunger for human meat with an unquenchable thirst for booze.

With their sixth full-length "Blodsvept" that came out a few weeks ago in March 2013 through Century Media Records, FINNTROLL returned to the fierce harshness of their blackened origins without giving up the perfect balance between darkened metal ferocity and melodic elements inspired by folk music from Finland and far beyond. In the words of the US Decibel magazine: "From Dick Dale-infused death'n'roll, amped-up infernal Big Band swing and raucous, chugged-out fe-fi-fo-fum stomps to unadulterated power metal, Mr. Bungle-esque carnival weirdness and something akin to the Pogues in a methamphetamine-fueled jam session with In Flames." Or like the British tabloid newspaper The Sun wrote: "If Mordor had a premier comedy club, Finntroll would be the resident band."

After a handful of exclusive release shows in May, FINNTROLL are now proud to announce a full length tour to spread blood over Europe. Expect a spectacular show with old and new classics. Their friends TYR from the Faroe Islands and SKALMÕLD from Iceland will support them for nights you will never forget.
An US tour will follow in November. Canadian fans are more lucky and can see FINNTROLL already in August (see dates below). Stay tuned for more news!
Let There Be ... Blodsvept!
