Finntroll could have been just another Viking metal band but they add a unique twist by incorporating a true folk element in humppa, a variety of traditional Finnish polka music. Theirs is then, something of an acquired taste as the results can be strange but it marks them as a truly unique entity. The 2003 album is an acoustic release, issued a short time after the tragic drowning death of Raimoranta on March 16, 2003.
Tapio Wilska was fired in January 2006 and replaced by Mathias Lillmåns.
