Trollfest (stylized as TrollfesT) are a Norwegian folk metal band.
The band released their first full-length album, Willkommen Folk Tell Drekka Fest, on the Solistitium Records label on 15 March 2005. The album name translates roughly to “Welcome Folk To The Drinking Feast” in English. Their second album, Brakebein (2006), was released by Omvina on 24 May 2006. The band performed at the 2007 Barther Metal Openair festival in Germany, which was their first-ever live appearance; in 2008 they played at the pagan metal Ragnarök Festival.
Trollfest was formed in 2003 by John Espen Sagstad (Mr.Seidel) and Jostein Austvik (Trollmannen). First album Willkommen Folk Tell Drekka Fest was released in 2005, and the band followed up with the second album Brakebein in 2006.
During the first years, TrollfesT never played live, and the first foray beyond the planning stage occurred in 2007 as one of the headlining bands at the Ninth Barther Metal Open Air Festival. TrollfesT then went on to headline and play various festivals and concerts around Europe during 2007–08, including the Ragnarök and Riedfest festivals. From October to November 2012, the band went on tour with Wintersun, Korpiklaani, Krampus and Varg for Heidenfest 2012 tour.
Trollfest’s third studio album, Villanden, was published in January 2009. In 2011 Trollfest signed with NoiseArt Records, and later that year En Kvest For Den Hellige Gral, the band’s fourth studio album, was released. Trollfest announced their new album, Brumlebassen, which came out 24 August 2012. The band’s sixth studio album Kaptein Kaos was released in April 2014. Following the release of Kaptein Kaos the band embarked on their first European headliner tour.
Their seventh studio album, Helluva was released in 2017.
Most of Trollfest’s lyrics are written in the fictional Trollspråk, which is a mixture of Norwegian and German. The band is also known for their use of saxophones and accordions in their songs.

Brakebein, is the second full-length album by Norwegian folk metal band, Trollfest. It was released on May 24, 2006. The album is a concept album based on a search for the ‘Legendary Beer’.
The whole Story is based on a few Trolls who leave their forest in order to search for the legendary Beer.
Legendarisk Øl (The Legendary Beer)
The Trolls are sitting in their forest and enjoy their Beer.
The song is about the Troll Brakebein who once heard a story about the Legendarisk Øl. He wants to find and taste it.
Utmarschen (Marching out)
Brakebein managed to convince the other Trolls to find the Legendary Beer. So they leave their forest and finally reach the coastal town of the pirate Busken. As Busken has lots of ships, the Trolls decide to attack him.
Piratkriegen (The Pirate War)
The Trolls attack and defeat Busken and take his biggest ship.
Den Åpne Sjø (The Big Ocean)
The Trolls sail on the ocean and still celebrate their defeat over Busken. They plunder every ship they see and soon everyone is scared of the infamous Trolls. Later the Trolls meet Thor Heyerdal on a little float. Brakebein commands him to tell everything about the Legendarisk Øl. Heyerdal claims not to know anything about it which makes Brakebein very angry.
Das MeerUngeheuer (The Sea Monster)
There is a huge Sea Monster. The Monster is bigger than every ship and eats anything that moves. Brakebein is lying in his bed and hears nothing, which is very uncommon for a ship full of trolls. So he goes out and sees the Sea Monster eating one of the Trolls. Brakebein and his friends beat the Monster and prepare the celebration of their victory.
Essenfest (Eating party)
The Trolls celebrate the victory over the Sea Monster and eat it.
Inni den Grotte (Inside the Cave)
Brakebein spots an Island. The Trolls don’t know how to stop the ship and so it hits the coast. Brakebein goes straight into the forest in order to find some Beer, the other Trolls search food at the beach.
PresteFeste (Priest Party)
Brakebein returns from the Forest. He did not find any Beer, but captured two Priests. After having barbecued them, the Trolls leave the island again, still looking for the legendary beer.
The Trolls find another island where the people smoke a peace pipe. The Trolls have lots of fun with them but Brakebein however gets tired and decides to continue the search for the legendary Beer.
Skogsgjensyn (Returning to the Forest)
The Trolls don’t feel like searching the legendary Beer anymore and convince Brakebein to return home.
