A tour video from our trip to Extremefest 2012, Part 3 of 3

Last episode of the tour videos from our trip to Extremefest, this time we go to St. Pölten in Austria. Some of our members had become sick during the night due to some sort of virus that had spread on the bus, so we all took it a bit easy this day. But we got another round of signing body parts, and plenty of time to relax in the sun with a beer. So a good day nevertheless. The video also contains a drum-cam for a change, and you get a sneak preview of the amazing color vinyl edition of Brumlebassen.

The music in the order it appears in the video (Song –Album):
Wo bin ich jetzt aufgewacht – Villanden
Die Verdammte Hungersnot – En Kvest for den Hellige Gral
Karve – En Kvest for den Hellige Gral
Illsint – Brumlebassen

A music video to the song TrinkenTroll by TrollfesT from the album Brumlebassen.

I teamed up with Oddbjørn Hofseth again on this video. We wanted to have a video that wasn’t a band-performance video for a change, without making too much of a “short story” out of it. So the idea of us hanging out at a pub came up. Shouldn’t be too hard of a role to act in for us we thought, I guess it became more difficult to not get too carried away in the roles as drunkards. The pub “Unholy” in Oslo and bartender Kai was kind enough to let us use their place as a location, and then we just invited friends and fans to be barguests. The budget for the video was 0,- as we didn’t have to rent any equipment, but if you take the money spent on beer into consideration, this might have been the most expensive music video for us so far after all.

In the second episode of the tour video from Extremefest 2012 we go to Switzerland. Pratteln to be exact. We have played here a few times before and it’s always great to be there so this was no exception. We played insanely early, before breakfast even, but at least we got to spend more time with the magic fridge afterwards. And we got to play the whole set compared to the evening before.

Der Jegermeister – Villanden

A trailer for the TrollfesT appearance at MetalCamp 2012

The trailer is made from the footage from last year’s trip to MetalCamp. Some of it filmed on my beloved super 8 camera. The “MetalCamp song” is the song “Rundt Bålet” from the album “Brumlebassen” with different lyrics. This alternative version of the song is available in the download package that comes with the album.

In the first episode of the tour video from Extremefest 2012 we go to Germany. As always we had a lot of fun on this trip, however we got off on a really bad start this time. The flight was delayed, and then there was a traffic jam, so our bus rolled in at the festival area the exact minute we were supposed to go on stage. We ran up and rigged our equipment, but we only got to play for 12-15 minutes. It was a lot better than not playing at all of course, but it was still the shortest concert we have ever played. At least we got to premiere the new song “Illsint” which was a lot of fun. After we got off stage we were greeted with the big beer mugs, and the vinyl edition of “Brumlebassen” at the NoiseArt tent so the sulking from not getting there on time was short-lived.

The music in the order it appears in the video (Song –Album):
Karve – En Kvest for den Hellige Gral
Die Verdammte Hungersnot (live) – En Kvest for den Hellige Gral
En ny erfaring – Villanden
Karve – En Kvest for den Hellige Gral
Illsint – Brumlebassen

A Lyric video for the song “Illsint” by Trollfest, from the album “Brumlebassen”.

The video is made up of the artwork for the album. The drawings are again made by the awesome artist Jonas Darnell (creator of the Swedish cartoon “Herman Hedning”) and the album layout is created by “The Terje” as always. The promo photos are taken by Vegard Haave.
This is the first song that was put out from the “Brumlebassen” album and it’s about the time “Grublegjøken” went out for a walk in the forest. He heard a lot of humming and assumed it was a great big beehive, but it turned out to be a furious wasp pumped up on steroids.

A “Making of” video for the song “Illsint” from the “Brumlebassen” album.

We landed on “Illsint” as the song we wanted to present to the public as the first new song from the “Brumlebassen” album. We we’re going to release it as a lyric video, so we thought why not upload the segment about that song from the “Making of” as well. So this video is simply cut out of the full 37 minute “Making of” that goes through the album track-by-track and is available in the download package of “Brumlebassen”. We wanted to have interviews on the “Making of” this time to make it a bit more informational and different then the first two making of’s. The album was recorded in “Strand Studio” which is the same place we recorded “En Kvest for den Hellige Gral” The rattle instruments was recorded at home like usual.
