Ensiferum announce plans to record sixth studio album
Finland’s heroes of folk metal, Ensiferum will be returning to the studio later this year to record the sixth album in their ongoing saga. Whilst touring Europe recently, the band have been crafting new battle hymns for the sixth album which will be acting as their debut on Metal Blade Records.
Ensiferum plan to record the new album in September and October of this year with producer Anssi Kippo at Astia Studio in Finland. The release date is tentatively scheduled for early 2015. Bassist Sami Hinkka has offered the following update:
Hi folks! 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. Stay tuned for more info!
