On this tour, the folk metallers will play the Nattfödd album in its entirety every day, and then some.

Moreover, a US tour will follow in November and the Canadian fans can see the band in August in Toronto and also Montreal for the Heavy MTL Festival.

Finntroll proudly present their brand new video for the song "Under Bergets Rot" from their most recent album Nifelvind, which has topped several European charts in February 2010.
Guitarist Routa comments: "This video is definitely a very special video for us. We have been thinking of doing an animation video for years actually, but for some reason we never did it, until now. With the release of the Nifelvind album we were asked to do 2 video. Century Media gave us free hands to choose from which ever songs we wanted. The first video was made for "Solsagan" and was made by Finnish company Vasara Films. As we have always done our music videos by ourselves, as me being a writer and director with the full support of the rest of the band of course, it was very difficult to let someone else do it. Even though the basic concept came from the band, it still didn't feel right. After the "Solsagan" video we weren't 100% convinced about letting someone else do our videos. So we were thinking what to do with the next video...
Finntroll vocalist Mathias Lillmåns and guitarist Samuli Ponsimaa have formed Decomposter, a new death metal project. The band has launched itself with the following words:
"A new era for death metal has begun... no wait, we're old school. Anyway... We have begun to exist. The rotted four of us gave birth to a futile piece of music. It's very organic solution for your ear pussies."
The band recently recorded their first demo, entitled Futile cover art]. The song "The Composter" is streaming on the band's MySpace page.
