One dark and frigid Helsinki night, vocalist Jan Jansen and Impaled Nazarene guitarist Teemu Raimoranta, in a drunken delirium, started playing traditional humppa music (Finnish polka) in the black metal style, and Finntroll was born. The band has gone on to become one of the most successful ‘extreme’ metal bands in the world, in no small part because they’re one of the most unique and refreshingly jolly bands to come out of a notoriously humorless scene.
