ENSIFERUM: New Hymn From Finnish Folk Metallers Available For Streaming

With the release of One Man Army, the forthcoming new studio offering from Finnish folk metal collective, ENSIFERUM, now just two weeks away, today Loudwire offers up “Heathen Horde” for public consumption.

Captured by award-winning producer Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, Impaled Nazarene, Entwine etc.) at Astia-Studios in Lappeenranta, Finland, the predominantly analog-recorded One Man Armywields eleven tracksof the band’s signature synthesis of Viking, folk and power metal swathed in fantastical themes of Scandinavian lore. Already reaping critical acclaim from media outlets globally, Metal Hammer gushes of the record: “ENSIFERUM have produced their most polished album to date; one that bulges with bombast and rages with frostbitten grit… these northern sword-wielders are close to finding the perfect recipe for taking folk into the mainstream of metal – all without losing a shred of authenticity.”

Notes Loudwire, “ENSIFERUM has become one of folk metal’s finest acts, experiencing a huge surge in popularity during the last few years. ENSIFERUM‘s music awakens one’s inner warrior… it’s a pity fighting to the death with swords and battle axes is illegal nowadays.”

Sample third movement, “Heathen Horde,” now playing at Loudwire, at THIS LOCATION.
