Finntroll - New Video Online

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...

We decided to do the second video for the song "Under Bergets Rot" and this one we were thinking about doing by ourselves as usual, just to get the right Finntroll-spirit into it. We got the idea of doing a video that's happening in this weird, out of this world jazz-club, where we would play as the house band. The story in the song is more or less about the song that this dude hears, and even though he hasn't heard the song before, he knows it and gets mesmerized by it. And while he's under the spell of this ancient song, he feels that only moments have passed, but then notices that years have gone by. So we wanted to take these ideas of time passing by and metamorphosis and add that to the video: this guy goes to this club, there's a weird band playing and he sees all kind of weird things and eventually ends up being one of them.

That's about it in a nutshell. We were supposed to do this like any normal video, with real actors and such, but we were about to go on the European tour. We realized that there's no chance we would have time to do this and there was no chance that I was going to edit it while on the road, haha. Then we thought that the only way we would get the video done is let someone else do it. We thought, "What the hell...this time let's do the animation one and let's go nuts with it." I called a few places in Helsinki that do animations and actually found out that one of our really old friends is doing animations nowadays. So we told her what we wanted and told her that the company she's working, Animaatiokopla, will have free reign with the video. We only hoped that they'll go over the top with it. Then we went on tour and after a month we got back and saw the final video and we were really satisfied with it. It has all the elements we wanted; weird things that go well with the music and even some gore. And most importantly, we finally got the animation video, haha. I wouldn't be surprised if we do another sometime in the future, but I can't promise anything yet."
