They’re Finnish and nearly finished with writing their next LP. Yup, Ensiferum continues to fine-tune its next batch of folk metal masterpieces, as they play shows this summer.
In the fall, though, they’ll get down to the business of tracking the melodic beast.
The band’s sixth studio album (and Metal Blade debut) will be recorded in September and October of this year with producer Anssi Kippo at Astia Studio in Finland.
The release date is tentatively set for some time in early 2015.
Comments bassist Sami Hinkka:
“They say that time flies when you are having a good time and we couldn’t agree more.
“We have been quite busy touring around the world since our previous album came out few years ago. Between tours, we have worked hard with new songs and now we are very proud to announce that Ensiferum will hit studio again right after summer festival season.
“On the new album, we will take everything to eleven. It’s going to be fast, furious, epic and full of surprises, but, of course, there will be classic Ensiferum elements included.
“We will do the album with the one and only Mr. Anssi Kippo. Pre-production is already going really well and in few weeks we will record another demo of all new songs. Then it’s time to continue twisting and turning all the details so that in early 2015 our fans on every continent can be sure to get in their hands the best folk metal album ever made.”
