Currently ensconced in the recording studio, Norway’s TROLLFEST have launched a competition giving their fans a chance to make a guest appearance on what will be the band’s sixth full-length album.  Anyone wishing to enter will have to record the melody that can be heard on an explanatory video on the band’s YouTube channel, using any instrument other than a guitar, and the weirder the instrument the better.  A note sheet and power tab file is also available to entrants, and once the recording has been made, it should be sent to TROLLFEST in time for the closing date of 01 September.  The winner will have their recording included on the album, and receive credit on the booklet.

Details of the competition as follows:
Melody can be heard below.
Instruments:  Anything that makes a noise except the guitar - the more creative and weird the better.
Recorded format required: 44.1 kHz, 24 bit wave
Download note sheet/tab

Closing Date: 01 September 2013
Recordings to be sent to: info@trollfest.com

Playing what they describe as True Norwegian Balkan Metal, and with the aid of the Swedish Cartoonist Jonas Darnell and designer Terje Johnsen TROLLFEST creates a universe inhabited by Trolls and assorted other characters, who embark on fantastical adventures.  The band celebrates their tenth anniversary this year, an occasion they have marked not only by releasing a stunning limited edition picture vinyl that is available only from the band but also making their entire back catalogue available for digital download through all the usual digital distributors, and again, direct from the band.

Following on from their successful North American tour last year, TROLLFEST will once again hit the USA and Canada when they support ALESTORM for a series of 24 dates at the end of the year.  Also on the bill will be Pasadena’s GYPSYHAWK.  Full tour dates as follows:
