By now you've probably heard that the almighty Finntroll has wrapped up their new album Blodsvept ("Shrouded in Blood" m.o.l.) and have released the titular (tee hee) track as a teaser. "Tit"-ular. Hello, I'm four years old.
Check out these big tits! (photo courtesy of the Guardian UK, who love them some tits.) These are long-tailed tits in particular. Who doesn't like a nice piece of tail to go with their tits? No one, that's who.)
Anyway, the new track is fucking sweet.
Finntroll - "Blodsvept"
I'm not sure what's going on in that promo pic...it looks like they've adopted some kind of steampunk pirate image. Whatever, it's fucking Finntroll. As far as I'm concerned they can prance around in tutus and SCUBA gear if they want to. This song is pure Finntroll, and pure awesome. Musically it seems to be carrying on in the vein of Nifelvind, with Trollhorn's keyboards sounding almost like, well, a horn section. Also their sound seems to be trending more toward a sort of "upbeat" feel...at least in comparison to their blacker old stuff. This is not a bad thing, in my opinion. It's more "folky". But Mathias Lillmåns' acid-core vocals still keep it real, yo. And there's chuggery.
Blodsvept releases on March 22 in Europe and April 2 in the US and Canada.
