When Troll Bends Fir was playing in 2002 with “elfish dances on moonlit grass” they literally scared away some of the audience. They gave their folk-music over there in St. Petersburg they gave it a real Viking spirit and a solid sound. The band is an unusual one the modern folk-metal. The lyrics are mainly in Russian, but sometimes also in Icelandic and they contain of original folk. No big battles in their songs, but a lot of old taverns. Violins, flutes and a raw voice make Troll Bends Fir a decent band for the folk-metal fans which don’t like it at maximum metal.
