Turisas release new track from Turisas2013 titled For Your Own Good

Turisas, famed for their Viking-esque metal and tongue-in-cheek attitude have a new album to be released on our shores. Turisas2013 marks a new era for the band and shows more diversity than their previous releases.

Mathias Nygård (vocals) says what For Your Own Good means for him:

Turisas2013 is a very diverse album, it has some of the heaviest and fastest tracks that we’ve ever done, but For Your Own Good comes more from the lighter end. It’s a very catchy song and we hope you’ll enjoy the track that we picked to give you a very first taste of the many flavours to come.

Turisas2013 was for the most part recorded in a remote house near Helsinki by Nygård and guitarist Jussi Wickström, which I think you’ll agree is the best way to do it. Additional recordings to complete the album were undertaken in 3 other studios which included: the drums at Atomic Spa Studio and orchestral recordings at 5 by 5 Studio, which are both in Helsinki and 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 mixing and mastering of the album was handled by Metal extraordinaire Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost B.C., Cathedral, Primordial, Ulver). in London at Orgone Studios and will undoubtedly be very impressive.

Turisas will be appearing at many festivals throughout the summer, so be sure to catch them. When Turisas2013 is released, an extensive European tour will follow including Heidenfest 2013 and a UK tour where they will be headlining.

Turisas2013 is scheduled for a release on 23rd August in Finland and G/A/S and 26th August in Europe while UK will follow up 2nd September and North America 3rd September.
