Finntroll is a Finnish fowk metal baund frae Helsinki, Finland. They jyne thegither pairts o extreme metal wi Finnish polka muisic, cried humppa. Their name coud mean aither "Trowe frae Finland" or "Plouky Trowe", syne in Swadish the wird Finne can mean aither a chiel frae Finland or plouk.

Leerics[eedit | eedit soorce]

Tho they are frae Finland, their leerics is aw in Swadish syne their first leeracist, Jan "Katla" Jämsen haed Swadish as his mither tongue an acause, they threap, Swadish "soonds damn troweish". Maist o their leerics is anent trowes an early Finnish history an paganism. Some o their leerics is gey anti-Christian, but it is whiles teuch tae ken gin they are sairious or no.

The Twa Foondin Memmers[eedit | eedit soorce]

Kalta, wha stairtit the baund in 1998 wis forced tae quat the baund in 2001 due tae a tumour (no cancer, but) that wis in his vocal chords an coudna be taen oot wi surgery. Housome'er, he is aye the baund's heidmaist leeracist an haes been a guest on Visor om Slutet in 2003.

The ither foondin member, Teemu "Somnium" Raimoranta, dee'd in 2003, efter fawin aff a brig. The offeecial verdict on his daith wis that he wis fou an the faw wis a mishanter. Housome'er, a freend o his, Mikka Luttinen (the singer frae Impaled Nazarene), jalouses that he duin awa wi hissel, an that he haed anerly haed three beers at the time. Nane o the foondin members is in the baund the nou.

Maugre o that, the baund wins on, tourin aften an settin furth new material.
