Ensiferum

Finnish folk metal victors, ENSIFERUM, will release their sixth studio album next month via Metal Blade Records. Titled One Man Army, the predominantly analog-recorded, eleven-track offering was captured by award-winning producer Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, Impaled Nazarene, Entwine etc.) at Astia-Studios in Lappeenranta, Finland and wields their signature methodic, yet organically-executed synthesis of Viking, folk and power metal adorned in fantastical themes of Scandinavian lore.

In celebration of its release, today ENSIFERUM offers fans an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into the creation of their most epic offering to date.

Watch bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka discuss One Man Army at THIS LOCATION where you’ll also find the band’s recently debuted “One Man Army” video and companion making-of footage.

In related news, 70,000 Tons of Metal voyagers will be able to catch ENSIFERUM‘s battle-ready live performance later this week before the band kicks off a lengthy European live incursion, brandishing their swords alongside Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum.
