Album Review: Trollfest – Flamingo Overlord (Napalm Records)

More flamboyant than Elton John; dance tunes that would make ABBA proud, as intense as Slipknot and cooler than Limp Bizkit —Trollfest has it all and more. Following their Napalm Records debut EP, Happy Heroes, Trollfest returns with their ninth official studio album, Flamingo Overlord, out May 27th, 2022.

Few bands could get away with opening an album about dancing like a pink flamingo. Few bands could make such silliness uber-catchy and deliciously fun, all while having heavy rock and metal groove. Of course, Trollfest can because Trollfest are not your everyday band.

Always capable of putting a smile on the face while encouraging wild bouts of dancing and head-banging, the hilarious and infectious opener of Dance Like a Pink Flamingo is just one of many anthems on this album. Don’t be surprised if you see a bunch of metalheads doing the moves from this track at your next show.

Elsewhere, the likes of Flamingo Overlord – All Drinks on Me is the bar (or pub) anthem of 2022 and beyond. Twenty Miles an Hour is a blast of high-powered energy, that also happens to feature some rap and a downright entertaining saxophone solo. The Way You Earn Your Drinks has plenty of fire but with a real tongue in cheek feel. Whereas Flamingo Libre and Piña Colada have Summery and good time vibes.

A ton of fun tracks in Trollfest’s unique, addictive and wacky style. They’re still certainly doing their own thing and the end result speaks for itself. After all, it’s not just the tracks mentioned above that stand out. The Flamingorilla is a fast-paced, bouncy and very silly piece of music, Overlords Have Feelings is a manic blast and Bob Venke is a longer and more twisted, Trollfest effort.

It’s an album filled with tracks to put a smile on the face. Filled to the brim with oddities, heavy anthems and Trollfest’s legendary ability to entertain.
