Trollfest do Britney Spears Cover of Toxic

Trollfest “True Norwegian Balkan metallers” have decided to go all out pop mad with this strangely infectious cover of Britney Spears’ Toxic. The video stars the band on a black curtain background with stumpy legs being puppeteered from behind them. It is certainly a strange sight to behold, but it certainly fits the mood of the cover songs silliness. Watching the drummers legs go double pedal mad is a big highlight for me. I literally LOL’d. The track is a promotional video for Trollfest’s upcoming 12-inch picture vinyl “A Decade Of Drekkadence”, which the band is releasing in celebration of its 10th anniversary.

Check out the video below:

“A Decade Of Drekkadence” features 16 tracks which include a completely new song, three acoustic versions of Trollfest’s signature tracks recorded during a live Trollfest performance at Metalcamp in 2012. Three covers, two B-sides and Trollfest’s never previously released demo from 2004, a piece that will no doubt please many hardcore Trollfest fans. Each Picture disc includes information on how to go about obtaining an MP3 format version of the “A Decade Of Drekkadence” album. Obviously for those who only wish to own the records as a collectors item, and would rather listen to the music on modern technology. Admittedly you wouldn’t want to have to leave the house with a vinyl record player strapped to your backside. If you could even figure out how to build a portable battery pack for it.

Swedish cartoonist Jonas Darnell and designer Terje Johnsen, have gone all out for the designs of Trollfest’s new picture disc, which includes illustrations of various characters created by Darnell from the Trollfest’s album releases over the last 10 years. Making appearences are the iconic metal duck from the “Villanden” album and the hellhound from the track “Helvetes Hunden Garm” a big fan favourite at Trollfest’s live shows.

“A Decade Of Drekkadence” will appear in time for the band’s first North American tour in March, when they will hit the road with Enisferum, TYR, Heidvolk and Helsott for the Paganfest Mexican, American and Canadian tour.

  2. […] Gypsyhawk was the first band to come on stage.  Apparently there was supposed to be another band before them called Winterhymn but they weren’t even on the roster.  Gypsyhawk’s front man was dressed in all leather and his jacket had white tassels on the sleeves.  All the band members looked to be probably late 30s.  The lead singer said “This song is about eating sausages. It’s called ‘Gypsyhawk’.”  My friends and I laughed and the song was pretty fast and impressive musically. The guitar harmonies were really cool and one of the guitarists was really getting into the songs and you could tell he was enjoying it. After “Gypsyhawk”, the lead singer then said “This next song is about my friend who is no longer with us.  He deserved to be up here living this life and not the shit life he got.  This song is for him, Robert Barratheon.”  It was at this point that I realized this band was awesome and was just a bunch of older nerds who knew how to rock.  They went on to play some really neat songs about “D&D” and “Quantum Physics.”  Needless to say, I was impressed. photo from Loudwire After Gypsyhawk, the roadies started setting up for the Norwegian band Trollfest.  I had never heard of them, just like I hadn’t heard of Gypsyhawk.  One of my friends said “the lead singer just yells while the band plays.”  You don’t know how right he was.  Their entrance was funny.  Some folksy music played while they danced around in circles on stage and then they broke out into noise- err music.  My group of friends and I just kind of looked at each other with the thought of “really?”  A few songs into it, we were ready for their set to end but then the singer said “This next song is about broccoli… and not running with scissors.”  We chuckled, and then they started up “Toxic” by Brittney Spears.  That made the show so much better. A quote from one of my friends sums it up well “They’re a band I would see again live, but never listen to their music outside of seeing them live.” photo from Soul Sanctuary Music […]
