Once upon a time… A bunch of trolls from the dark north. Deep in the caves of the woods, they partied all night long to their own tunes of flutes, mandolins, and accordions. They mostly surrounded themselves with clubs of meat and mugs of mead but also liked a princess or two. Although they were some lazy bastards, they still traveled the vast kingdom to play their trollish music for the good folks. Their tales of adventure and other fairy tales have now become their debut record “Der Var Engang…”, that will be released in May via Mighty Music.
“We at TROLD are incredibly happy and grateful to be able to present our first record, and we want to send a big thank you to everyone involved who has helped make this a success. Join us on an adventure – it’s only just begun…“, the mischievous gang comments.
Trold plays folk metal with a mischievous smile, which is guaranteed to kick off the party from inside the large, dark Danish forests. The storytelling and melodies are in focus when playing with different instruments and heavy guitar rhythms to create the perfect atmosphere. The stories grow, hiss, and are sung, while the listeners/audience are taken on a host of adventures.
Trold has its roots well planted in the Nordic soil where inspiration is found from a wealth of fairy tales and mythologies. Giants, Gods, the animals of the forest, and the marvelous world of the sea are just some of the places Trold takes the listeners.
When the trolls are on stage, you can be sure that the party will start and the good mood will be kicked off.
