Trollheims Grot are a band from Finland that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2001 album "Bizarre Troll Technology" which was released by Woodcut Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music and they dominate throughout the recording and they have an industrial feeling on the last song, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that utilize a great amount of dark sounding melodies and thrash influences in the riffing as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams, deep growls and clean singing, while the lyrics cover trolls, blasphemy, darkness and technology, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Trollheims Grot are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal band with a thrash and melodic edge and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Troll Syndicate" "Bizarre Troll Technology" and "Electronic Genocide". RECOMMENDED BUY.
