Finntroll, ‘Trollhammaren’ (Live) – Exclusive Video Premiere
Subscribe to Loudwire on
Finntroll have just unleashed their live album ‘Natten Med de Levande Finntroll,’ and the Finnish band is teaming up with Loudwire to bring you the premiere of their concert video for ‘Trollhammaren.’
As Finntroll frontman Mathias “Vreth” Lillimans says at the beginning of the performance, “I want to see everybody move now.” And after checking out this live version of ‘Trollhammaren,’ it’s hard to imagine that everybody in the place wasn’t rocking out.
From the opening accordion and keyboard work of Aleksi Virta to the heavy riffing of guitarists Samuli “Skrymer” Ponsimaa and Mikael “Routa” Karlbom to the killer low end of bassist Sami “Tundra” Uusitalo, this song is a rocker through and through. ‘Trollhammaren’ was the band’s first major single and video, first appearing on 2004’s ‘Nattfodd’ disc, and gets a second life living on this concert collection.
You can find this live version of ‘Trollhammaren’ on the band’s new ‘Natten Med de Levande Finntroll’ album, which translates to ‘Night With the Living Finntroll.’ The disc is out today from Spinefarm Records and is currently available at iTunes.
Finntroll are currently on tour in Australia, but will return to Europe soon for dates booked from early-July through mid-October. See all of their upcoming shows here.
