Commented FINNTROLL in a statement: “After tough and hectic weeks in the studio, due to lack of time and summer festivals, we are now really, really pleased with the results. ‘Nifelvind’ is the most advanced and mature FINNTROLL album to date, with musical themes ranging from powerful death metal riffs to dark soundtracks, from pounding black metal to groovy ’80s pop music. All this is accompanied by our trademark sound, lots of never-before-heard instruments in the metal scene, folklore and legends that make it overall the most versatile album we have created so far.”
