Trollfest transform energetic hits into pure Norwegian Balkan Metal K.A.O.S. with Happy Heroes!
Legendary Norwegian outfit Trollfest is back, ready to deliver their groovy, energizing and K.A.O.S-infused sound to the masses! After gathering millions of streams on YouTube and Spotify, Trollfest release their new dual-themed EP, Happy Heroes (March 19th 2021 via Napalm Records), proving themselves as more joyful and adventurous than ever before. Four vivid songs on the new EP deliver a vast variety of spectacular musical romps, made evident by catchy original title track “Happy Heroes”, wherein Trollfest tells the story of evil, self-righteous troll superheroes whom you should probably not call if you’re in need of help. The EP then presents three re-energized cover songs – punk rock and folk metal re-imaginings of the world-famous “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, quite possibly the cheeriest song known to man, “Don’t Worry Be Happy”, by Bobby McFerrin, and the Aqua hit “Cartoon Heroes” (featuring guest vocals by Miriam Renvåg Müller aka Sfinx). Each revitalized track is steeped in the spirit of True Norwegian Balkan Metal – filled with charging drums, lively vocal performances and folky madness! If you’re hankering to party with drunken trolls and go absolutely crazy with Trollfest, Happy Heroes is just the medicine for you!
