Willkommen bei TROLLMUSIC TV!


Es ist uns eine ungeheuer große Freude, euch im Rahmen unserer ein ganz neues Format vorzustellen, welches unser Redakteur THOR JOAKIMSSON ins Leben gerufen hat!

Ja, manchmal ist in den Zeiten von Pest und Colera und Corona so einiges möglich - was die Geschichte der Krisen und Katastrophen immer wieder bewiesen hat. Denn oft werden dabei kreative Ideen freigesetzt, die es sonst in dieser Form wohl nie gegeben hätte.

Thor jedenfalls hat sich kurzerhand hingesetzt, um ein TV-Format unter YouTube anzulegen, in dem er auf sehr sympathische und einfallsreiche Art Bands, Musiker und vieles mehr vorstellt: TROLLMUSIC TV!

Präsentiert und zu Wort kommen dabei natürlich Musiker, die auf seinem kleinen Label veröffentlichen, allerdings auch die oftmals viel zu unbeachteten Bands, über die Thor auch auf berichtet.

Er selber schreibt dazu: "Trollmusic TV is a new format created in times of forced 'social distancing' due to the Corona pandemic, in order to offer something different to the common bad new. It's obviously done the DIY way. If you enjoy, feel welcome to spread the word! - Thank you. :-)"

Darum sind wir sehr stolz darauf, euch ab sofort unter unserer Seite exklusiv und lückenlos TROLLMUSIC TV präsentieren zu dürfen!

Ab sofort halten wir euch unter unserer KOLUMNE und unter den NEWS immer auf dem Laufenden, wann TROLLMUSIC TV sich wieder zu Wort und Bild meldet! Verlasst euch drauf.

Also - los gehts mit TROLLMUSIC TV #1:

Facing quite some frustration and depressive views in the underground these days, Thor presents three uprising heavy metal / psychedelic doom / hard rock bands whose new releases hopefully spread some encouraging vibes in these dark times of shutdowns, quarantine and so on. If you enjoy the music presented here, please visit the following pages and support the bands. Thank you.

Trollmusic is first of all a record label, moreover it is also a wyrd network. Trollmusic TV was spontaneously created when Thor was put in quarantine and yearned for the peace of the woods while at the same time listening to some promising new bands. Time will tell if this format will get continued.

Und weiter mit TROLLMUSIC TV #2, das sich speziell auf die norwegische Band BYRDI konzentriert:

In 2004, AINULINDALË was the first band which published an album on Trollmusic. Label founder Thor reflects those early days together with Thomas (Engwar), who has lately come up with an amazing EP of cover versions, including a.o. "Wasted Years" by Iron Maiden and "Echoes" by Pink Floyd. Trollmusic TV presents an excerpt of the folk'end Maiden tune, and grants you insight into the - nowadays again productive - AINULINDALË camp.
