I found 4 topics about this great band, but none to discuss about them

Recently I got their album "Battle Metal" and wow!! what a great music!! I really liked it, the concept is really interesting, perfect atmosphere, great instrumentation.
Why do you think about them?

Wow, I just got "Stand up and fight" album 3 days ago. it's great, a beautiful symphonic battle folk metal album!! there are a few albums that I like every track of it, and this album is one of them. it's really more interesting than the other albums of Turisas.

I've heard their cover of Rasputin and I think it's very great.
P.S. The whole band looks like Hellboy.

I first heard Turisas live supporting Dragonforce and I had never even heard of them before. They blew my mind, I went from standing at the back with a drink to right at the front and even though i didn't know a single song it was one of the best live shows i have ever seen, and when they did fuck the guitar solo i was hooked. I love how their songs work as stand alones yet the Varangian way and Stand up and fight tell a story, i love stories!

That's awesome! How amazing to have heard them for the first time AT a show! I've only seen them live once but it was absolutely the best concert I've ever attended. I was already a fan of them but I can only imagine how magical it would have been had I been discovering them, too.

Damn. Those boys can put on a SHOW. And yeah their cover or Rasputin live is quite an experience

Damn you both I didn't have a chance to see them live so far, and it doesn't look like things will change in the near future.

Yeah would love to see them live. Especially after I bought Stand Up And Fight. That is a killer album. Full of energy and it tells a good story too

I somehow doubt Stand Up And Fight would be all that good live. To me, it sounds like a weaker Varangian Way with very little actual metal elements. It's too orchestral based, which I can't picture translating all that well live. That whole album just sounds like a movie soundtrack to me, and not a very good one at that.

It's got a few redeeming factors - "Hunting Pirates" being the most notable. Probably a 6.5-6.9 for me depending on my mood. At best it still just makes me want to listen to The Varangian Way.

I really just don't get this band. It seems like they are more about the appearance and live show atmosphere than songwriting. It's one of those bands where, I just don't understand why someone would take the time to listen to when there are so many other listening options available.

Turisas is badass, their Rasputin cover sounds amazing. I don't think they're more into showing off rather than focusing on the songs, I like them just good.
