FINNTROLL are back! On March 9th, the band will release its highly anticipated new slab of folk-rooted metal hymns entitled Nifelvind. It was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios (Apocalyptica, Amorphis, Ensiferum) in Helsinki, Finland and mastered by Mika Jussila (Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica, HIM) at Finnvox Studios. A savage new video for the track, “Solsagan,” was recently completed and you can view the making of that video now at Youtube. The eye-popping new clip was produced by Vasara Films (Dark Tranquillity, Turisas).
Blabbermouth reports – After four years, Hypocrisy — the Swedish extreme metal band led by guitarist/vocalist Peter Tägtgren (also of PAIN) — will finally be back on the road in Europe in January as part of the “Long Time, No Death… Europe 2010″ tour with Survivors Zero and Hatesphere.
To really give the fans something special, the band has decided to let its fans vote for their favorite songs that they want to see performed live. The top-voted songs will be played on the upcoming tour.
