Reissue of this Harsh Folk Metal classic on vinyl! A Trollish Masterpiece!
Truly, this album is amazing. Most of you have found out about Finntroll from the amazing work that is “Nattfodd” probably;
then eventually stumbled upon this treasure. The mix of “grim” black metal and “fun” Finnish polka created this masterpiece
created from the gods themselves. The black metal remains consistent and dark, while the polka gives it an aura of true
maniacal nature.
The album begins with the intro entitled “Krig.” The sound of this intro is almost as a war march, it has an ambient sound that is
truly haunting followed by the blast of a horn and war drums. “Krig” leads into the deep tones of a piano played by Trollhorn
on the first song of the album “Fodosagan” which roughly translates to “Tale of Birth”. The up-beat feeling of the song of all
deep instruments is truly eerie. As the song progresses the sound of an accordion takes over the listener’s ears; followed by a
brief interlude of an acoustic guitar. The entire song may as well have been created by trolls, the instruments sound BIG, and
Katla’s vocals sound like it was recorded from real trolls singing. There you have it, a quick glimpse of the masterpiece that
is “Jaktens Tid”.
The entire album continues with the dark mood of trolls taking over human life, in various and amazing ways. While the music
sounds great absolutely, the truly frightening fact about this album is that as happy as some of the songs sound, when the lyrics
are translated, they project gruesome images of death and some gore. If you are looking just for great music “Jaktens Tid” is
definitely what you are looking for. If you are into truly frightening art, then “Jaktens Tid” is definitely what you are looking
for. Actually, after several listens one realises this album is truely unique.
For fans of: Vintersorg, Falkenbach, Thyrfing, Satyricon, Korpiklaani, Bathory, Moonsorrow, Emperor
