Biography

Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation (2000 – present)

“Тролль Гнёт Ель” (“Troll Gnøt Yel”, “Troll Bends Fir” in russian) is a band from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Founded in 2000 by Kostya Troll (Konstantin Rumiantsev - lead vocals, guitar) and Jethra (Maria Leonova - flute, female vocals).

TBF’s creativity is formed of Scandinavian folklore tunes stylized and mixed up with modern hard-rock riffs. Lyrics are primarly in Russian and they send you back to the funny stories of the medieval tavern.

History

When Troll Bends Fir appeared in 2000 they literally scared away fans of “elfish dances on moonlit grass” and gave to folk music in St. Petersburg real Viking spirit and rock-n-roll drive.
This set of musicians give their gigs in clubs all over St. Petersburg and Moscow gathering quite a lot of fans. The increasing number of their crowd is not surprising due to the unique niche TBF found in modern folk music. “Leprechauns” and “Banshee” dancing jigs and reels and joined the green banners of Erin are numerous in both Russian capitals. But music of real Nordic cold that flames and shakes is new to our public. TBF musicians call their style beer-folk and that’s a point. Their music background consists of Scandinavian folk tunes styled as hard rock riffs. Lyrics are primarily in Russian though there are some songs in ancient Icelandic and they follow traditional content of real folk songs. In contradiction to Viking-Metal songs of tarred decks, clash of Viking swords and twilight of gods TBF’s words are stylistically very close to genuine folk songs that were sung in taverns all over Old Europe.
