With: Petri Lindroos
Conducted by: Baz Anderson (in person)

Band profile:

Ensiferum


Ensiferum's long European tour hit a cold and dark Nottingham as part of the UK leg. I managed to climb onto Ensiferum's tour bus to get some words with the band's strangely poker-faced but welcoming frontman.

We talk about the band's changes, what really happened regarding leaving Norther and I try to talk about Wintersun.

Many thanks to Dante of Spinefarm for setting up the interview.
Conducted and edited by Barry Anderson, video recording by Rachel Muir.

I thought it was an ok interview ,he didn't seemed that enthusiastic but i wouldn't blame him,i mean look he must be very tired,and trying to relax berfore the show.He said it was cold,rainy,and just look at the place of the interview,seems to dark n gloomy.I don't think many people will give a good inteview in those conditions.Petri laughs at times so he wasn't really bothered by the interview.I went to their concert this Nov. 18 ,2009 and they were amazing and alot of energy one of my favorite bands.:banger:

Kilts aren't English... they aren't Finnish either, so they might as well be.

I didnt say kilts were English. I was referring to someone from England calling it a skirt when they know its called a kilt. Even the Finn knew it was a kilt.

I agree with this.

Btw, they make folk/pagan metal, but that doesnt mean they live, act, talk, etc. like the saxons or any other barbarian groupd did like 1,500 years ago...come on, be serious!, the only ones that say they live in the forest are the guys from Korpiklaani =P. I kinda hate the statement "sex, drugs and rock and roll" because it seems more about other things than MUSIC!!!, I know this IS NOT R&R but you know what I mean. Some people seems to be more concerned about what his favourite artist drink than how he sings/play his instrument, etc.
