Turisas - New Album Title, Cover, Release Date Unveiled


The follow-up to Stand Up And Fight is upon us. Turisas have just revealed the title of their new album. You would never guess it but it will be called Turisas2013. The release dates have been set for August 21st in Finland, August 26th in Europe and North America on September 3rd through Century Media Records.

The album was produced by vocalist Mathias Nygård and the majority of the album was recorded by Nygård and guitarist Jussi Wickström in a remote house outside of Helsinki. Additional recordings were done in three other studios: the drums at Atomic Spa Studio and orchestral recordings at 5 by 5 Studio, both in Helsinki. A lot of vocals and numerous additional elements were tracked at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna where Turisas also recorded The Varangian Way and Stand Up And Fight. The mix and mastering was done in London at Orgone Studios with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano who previously worked with Ghost B.C., Cathedral, Primordial and Ulver, just to name a few.

Mathias "Warlord" Nygård comments: "When it comes to the production it's just the opposite of the polished and massive Stand Up And Fight. It's raw and dry and in your face, but still maintaining that Turisas-largeness. People attest us that we are a great live band and we wanted the album to be based more around that than orchestral massiveness. It's our most varied record to date and even if some of the songs sound very different, I think the common thread is that every single one has a lot of energy to it."

While the band will be playing selected festivals during the summer season, the release of Turisas2013 will be supported by extensive European tour dates like the Heidenfest 2013.

Their last album was awful and what scares me about that is people who have no idea who the band is accept it and the band thinks to themselves 'Oh we finally made recognition' and decide to stay on that generic path, crap music and no more energy/creativity. That is exactly what this album cover and title say to me

Hmmm, yeah it's odd, they converted a lot of people with the last album, which I find odd because I found it to be very moon-spoon-june. The Varangian Way had a lot of depth and thought put into it, Battle Metal was pretty cliche but it had that youthful energy.

If the cover/title is a sign of whats in store, it is indeed going to be a lazy, slapped-together piece of shit.


My thoughts exactly

Generic? I think they would be more popular if they stayed generic, who here wouldn't want a Varangian Way Pt. II? It's pretty unimanous that that is their best album(if not most liked) and its only 8 tracks. My worries is the opposite: that they change too much each album and it might not always be for the best. But I did enjoy most of Stand Up even though it wasnt what I was expecting so maybe this will surprise me too, I hope.

Also, Jussi from the band posted on twitter yesterday "In search for cover art for the fifth Turisas album", so maybe they're just pulling our leg with the title and cover?

Fifth, not fourth

I think they were just visiting Tate Modern and made a mild joke about the happening.

That's true, I guess it is there 4th official album... I'm just all confused now, lol. I think I'm just gonna stop reading too much into all this crap and wait for the music to speak for itself.

Still hoping that the title and cover are a joke.. which I think they might pull.
