Finns det någon som talar svenska?
« on: December 23, 2011, 12:42:41 AM »

Yeah... so there's this band I stumbled across a couple months ago...  Finntroll.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/yGywo81G6lk" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/yGywo81G6lk</a>

I find the sound appealing, but not understanding ten words of Swedish (they're from Finland, as their
name suggests, but apparently there's a region that speaks Swedish...), I wish I could be certain they
aren't some sort of fascist xenophobic hate metal or anything else I'm philosophically opposed to....

If anyone were able to take a peek at their LYRICS and double-check that for me, I would be
most appreciative. I might even do something nice for you some day.

Google is your friend. Copypasta the lyrics into the magic box and BAM! instant English.  :coolsmiley:

I just had a look at one and it was vikingy but you'd have to check out a few more to be certain.

All finns should be able to speak some swedish as we get taught that in school, however I haven't spoken swedish in about 7 years...

And there are several regions of Finland where swedish is at least important minority language.

edit: the lyrics are mainly about dark land of trolls :D Kinda mythological stuff.

facebook is like the worst book I've ever read. the characters do not evolve one bit and the plot is going nowhere.

The band Battlelore sing songs based on the works of Tolkien...and dress like cavemen xD
Not that it has much relevance here.

Led Zeppelin did a couple of Tolkien-themed songs...  Then there are all the metal bands with LotR-based
names (Amon Amarth, Amon Düül, Nazgûl)...  There was (is?) a jazz outfit called Shadowfax...

Yeah, but these guys only write from Tolkien based works.
For example, their lasted album was written about the life of one of the characters from a Tolkien book.

Talking about Tolkien and Finland...

Tolkien based elvish on finnish language. Apparently he learned it and really liked the language.
