Biography

The last leaves have fallen in the old world of Europe. Trees are stripped to wooden skeletons, Winter is at its coldest. The old magic is fading away…
FINNTROLL’s new album, a storm of old-world-laden, folk-rooted black metal called "Nifelvind", will be the sound that freezes souls as it blows from the grim North this February 2010

Format: Audio CD
This is a bit of a strange one. Despite clocking in at over two minutes longer than the band’s debut, 'Midnattens Widunder', this EP features surprisingly little music.
Recorded before the tragic death of guitarist and founder member Somnium, 'Visor Om Slutet' is the first Finntroll release to feature the vocals of new member Wilska (although Katla who left the band due to illness still contributed lyrics).
So, out of eleven tracks, only four are proper songs, the remainder being ambient pieces, although all still have that 'troll' feel. "Rov", for example, is the sound of trolls munching on their latest kill, whilst "Under Varje Rot Och Sten" is a slow, mournful keyboard piece before changing to a more upbeat section complete with drunken cheers, clapping, and…er…a harmonica solo.
To the actual songs. The songs are all acoustic as promised. "Försvinn Du Som Lyser" is the best song on the EP. It's basically what normal Finntroll songs would sound like if they removed the metal element from the music; proper Finnish hummpa. This is music to sit around a roaring fire quaffing flagons of mead to. "Den Sista Runans Dans" is a downbeat ballad, made all the more depressing in light of recent events concerning the band. "Svart Djup" is similar to this, but has a more optimistic feel to it. I'm still unsure of what to think of this recording. Whilst what we have been given is admittedly good, it just feels like there should be more

Acoustic Folk Death Metal? 2 July 2003
By Mark Allen Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Likely nobody expected what they got when they first encountered Finntroll, and you shouldn't be expecting what you get with this cd either (their third release). This is a 100% acoustic cd from what you might normally call a death metal band (has any other 'death metal' band done such a thing?).
Of course, if you're familiar with Finntroll, you'll realize that this is less of a stretch than with most metal acts, since they employ elements of humpa polka, folk music, Sammi joik vocals, and other odd folk bits into their normal metal assault. Still, it's not as if they're playing it safe here... many metal fans probably won't be interested in a strictly accoustic cd, but they aren't likely to attract a lot of folk music fans with their grunting "Trollish Hoedown" music. But if you like Finntroll as much as I do, you can easily envision this as being the sound of the trolls in a more mellow mood.
You get some nice accoustic tunes, some trollish grunting polka, more sammi-joik vocals, and just generally things that nobody was expecting. It's not as weirdly ear-popping as the folk death polka metal whatever-you-call-it that you normally get from them, but it's definitely weird.

Soundtrack to Ingmar Bergman & Jim Henson's lost masterpiece 14 July 2003
By SJB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not really quite sure what to say about this except that it's absolutely delightful-it's pretty critic-proof. If you ever find yourself walking home from a party through the woods completely messed up, this would be the thing to have in the discman. By turns sounding like Emmet Otter's Jugband and Mortiis, it offers a really delightful mix of dark soundscape and truly weird acoustic hoedown-almost as if it were the soundtrack to a documentary about the lives of trolls, with ethnographic samples of their folk music. Either that or it's the soundtrack to the lost collaboration between Ingmar Bergman and Jim Henson.
Either way, it's a truly creepy, but wondrous experience. My copy came with a patch and a sticker. A warning if this is your first exposure to this band: I am told their other material is much more metal and much more ...polka... than this release. But I bet it's a blast.
I especially enjoy the trolls eating on track 8. GREAT STUFF!

really creepy... 2 July 2003
By mr_moth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent CD. Finntroll has moved on from death metal to more atmospheric stuff --- it's like those relaxation cds with nature sounds, only instead of being soothing it just freaks you out, like if it was recorded in woods, at night, and there were trolls about. It's awesome! Many different instruments are used in addition to the typical guitars, base, synthesizer and drums; including recorder, tin flute, kazoo, mouth harp, iron horn, bullroarer, minced meat, saw, triangle, pieces of steel, egg shakers, tambourine, bodhran, wooden djembe, iron djembe, beer crates, floor, handclaps, and sticks. Very unique sound. It is not metal, and doesn't sound much like their last CD, Jaktens Tid. However, it is a great CD, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to try something completely different from anything else out there. Come to think of it, this would be hilarious to start playing at night on a camping trip without telling anyone, when you're out in the middle of nowhere...

Interesting stuff, but not remotely metal 8 Aug 2009
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've only recently discovered Finntroll and their crazy Finnish humppa metal sound, but I enjoyed their 2007 album Ur Jordens Djup enough to look into their earlier works. The first one I picked up was 2003's Visor Om Slutet. It may also be the last one I try. Apparently Finntroll's sound has evolved significantly over the past few years, because instead of the crazy "polka metal" I was expecting, Visor Om Slutet doesn't remotely qualify as a metal album at all.

The music on Visor Om Slutet is largely acoustic folk music with clean and "troll" vocals. It relies heavily on flutes and accordions, and has a very ethnic feel. Now this is what made Finntroll appealing as a metal band, and to be sure, the music on this album is totally decent. It's just more appropriate to serve as a soundtrack for fantasy role playing games or a renaissance faire. But it doesn't rock at all. Not even a little.

If you're looking for some unusual folk music, by all means give Visor Om Slutet a listen. If, however, you're looking for metal in the same vein as Finntroll's later releases, you're going to be disappointed by this one.

Epitome ov Trollish!!! 24 Dec 2008
By Mason Hagood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok here's the deal, Visor Om Slutet WAS recorded in a cabin in the woods outside ov Helsinki. Troll horn recorded and produced it himself inside the cabin.

From beginning to end this album brings you back to another time and place with the real sounds ov the forests and its inhabitants. This is a Trolls album. So if you think your a Troll like a do then please pick this up.

It's a stoners album, very very down tempoed. I keep this album in my home stereo the entire time. It's what I put on when i'm high or shroomin'. yes those ov you that know what I mean, take an 8th and listen to this album. but skip Rov which is track 8. gave me a bad trip hahaha

all in all this is hands down my favorite Finntroll album other than Jaktens Tid.

Stay Trollish
