Bio

Trollgasm started in mid-late 2008 by Tim as a solo project. Tim recorded a 3 track demo tape to the style of Isengard and Storm (Nor). The project was the abandoned due to commitment to Tim's other bands. That was to be the end of Trollgasm as Tim had never planned on doing more than the one off demo.

Almost a year later, friend and class mate Nathan "Tex" Exelby came to Tim with some folk metal songs that would then be the start of the Heinken demo. Inspired once more to do folk metal Tim reformed the band bringing in Tex on drums and Tim's older brother Dani on bass.

Trollgasm played its first show on Friday the 13th of November 2009 and have been a live band ever since. At the start of 2010 the band gained rhythm guitarist Michael to replace live guitarist Kriss after he moved.

A Deal was struck in September 2010 with Aurora Australis Records to produce and re-release both Trollgasm demos on casette tape with a limit of 250 copies.

In 2011 Trollgasm entered Mioan Studios to record their debut EP. 6 songs were recorded but money issues came in to play and Trollgasm decided to record everything again from Tim's home studio, only to have the final mixes lost to a crashed hard drive before mastering took place. The band then entered the studio early 2012 and finished vocals and added an extra song making it a 7 track EP. Unhappy with the programmed violin samples the band acquired the services of Grace Finlayson and re-recorded all violin parts and added yet another two songs making a 9 song EP/ALBUM entitled "The Northern Winds".

Grace then joined the band as a full time member in 2013.
