The Brumlebassen carving will be signed by the entire band and presented as a prize in one of the competitions that TrollfesT will run from their own pavilion at the festival. A series of photos, including the process that went into carving the figure can be found on TrollfesT's Facebook page at this location..
MetalCamp will see TrollfesT play two sets. One on the main stage, where the band will play the entire Brumlebassen album live for the first time, as well an acoustic concert on the beach. From their Pavilion close to the beach, TrollfesT will be holding meet and greets, signing and photograph sessions, and a series of games and competitions where fans can win prizes, including the Brumlebassen carving.
Commenting on the idea to make the carving, TrollBank had this to say: “It was always the intention right from the outset when we first formed TrollfesT to make it not only a band that played great music, but also a band that had some fun while doing it, and a large part of that is making sure that we involve the fans in the fun. We’re particularly pleased to have our own pavilion this year, as it’s sometimes hit or miss as to whether fans will actually catch sight of their favourite bands wandering round the festival grounds, but at MetalCamp they will know exactly where to find us and where to go and have a good time. We’ve found over the years with TrollfesT that we’ve become especially close to the fans, more so than with any other bands that we play in. They treat us like friends and welcome us wherever we go, often with great generosity when it comes to sharing their drinks, so we try all the time to give something back, and the carving seemed like a particularly personal, and pretty exclusive, way of doing it”.
TrollfesT played Extremefest festival series at the beginning of July this year, where they performed the new song ‘Illsint’ for the first time ever. The band has now released tour diaries from the festival. Check them out below:
