Pioneers of folk metal Finntroll will be enchanting our fair shores Down Under in June with their signature brand of brooding metal intensity fused with Finnish ‘humppa’ polka.

Self-described as “Beetlejuice on crack”, the band’s sixth album, released early last year, has seen them push the genre in exciting, new directions. Blodsvept takes inspiration from samba and even makes ample use of duelling banjos.

The unlikely marriage of folk and metal is made all the more fascinating in their live performances, where the band has committed to dressing in full trollish garb, right down to the floppy, gnarled ears.

Join the trolling fun on Saturday June 21 at Manning Bar. Tickets are available now from Metropolis Touring.
