As you know by now, Ensiferum have a new album coming out next year called One Man Army. Today, you get to see the detailed and mythological cover that will grace the album created by renowned illustrator Gyula Havancsák (Annihilator, Týr, Elvenking, Stratovarius etc). Feast your eyes on it below now while you wait for new music.
Insomnium will be the special guests and accompany Ensiferum on their European tour next year. Ensiferum's European tour will then be an all-Finnish affair as Omnium Gatherum have also joined the bill. The trek will stop by Germany, Hungary, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and more countries.
Ensiferum have finally announced the title of their new album. It will be called One Man Army as some have guessed before when their European tour was confirmed. The Finnish folk metallers have completed work on their upcoming new record after spending the last few weeks at Astia Studio in Lappeenranta in Finland with producer Anssi Kippo. Mark your calendars for a 2015 release on February 24th in North America, and February 23/20 in UK/Europe through Metal Blade Records.
Ensiferum have just announced a European tour that will be taking place in March and April 2015. As you know, the band is finishing up the recordings of their new album, which is expected to be released in early 2015, so around the time of this tour. That probably means you will be able to hear some new songs on this tour.
Ensiferum have been locked away in Astia Studio in Lappeenranta in Finland with producer Anssi Kippo for three weeks. Drums, bass and most of the guitar parts have been recorded for their new album which is tentatively scheduled for release worldwide on Metal Blade Records in early 2015. At the end of last week, guest musician Timo Väänänen tracked some takes with his kantele (see below), and over the weekend, vocalist Petri Lindroos began tracking vocals. It's almost done.
Finnish folk metallers Ensiferum are hitting the studio next month to record their upcoming album that follows Unsung Heroes. With pre-production out of the way, the band is prepared to begin recording. Work will begin on September 8th at Astia Studio in Lappeenranta, Finland with producer Anssi Kippo. Fans can expect to hear new music at the beginning of January 2015.
Back in 2013, Ensiferum signed a deal with Metal Blade Records and confirmed they were working on new songs. Since then, there hasn't been a lot of updates from the band. However, the Finnish folk metallers have now announced that the writing process is nearing completion. They plan to record the new album in September and October this year with producer Anssi Kippo at Astia Studio in Finland. The release date is tentatively scheduled for early 2015.
Ensiferum bassist Sami Hinkka announced that he will not be performing with the rest of the band at the upcoming festivals this coming weekend: Rockstad: Falun and Summer Breeze Open Air. Replacing him on these two shows will be Jukka-Pekka Miettinen, the former bassist of the band.
Ensiferum keyboardist Emmi Silvennoinen won't be taking part in the folk metallers upcoming South American tour set to start on May 28th "due to personal reasons". The band's guitarist Markus Toivonen also recently had a health issue but has since then recovered from a problem in his ear.
Finland's Ensiferum have forged a deal with Metal Blade Records. The band inked the deal with Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel during the Paganfest USA tour and while they are already working on new songs, it will still be a while before they release a new album.
