Turisas Frontman Rules Out New Album Until 2010

Lucem Fero has issued an interview with TURISAS vocalist Mathias "Warlord" Nygård, conducted in September by Welsh interviewer Anthony Morgan. An excerpt appears below:

Q: Turisas is due to issue a DVD entitled A Finnish Summer With Turisas, so could you provide an introduction to this upcoming release?

A: "Compared to the other group DVDs available for purchase, it's slightly different. Whilst touring across North America, we began to take a look at our summer 2008 schedule. We realized that a number of Finnish shows had been booked, and that was quite strange. In the past few years, most of our performances have occurred within Germany, the UK, or abroad. Only during the last year or two, we've actually started gaining recognition in our home country. Of course, it's nice to gain recognition in your home country as well. We found our summer schedule slightly special, and opted to film a documentary regarding the whole summer. It's a road trip somewhat, but also happens to be a documentary regarding Turisas. The DVD features interviews and so on, and that type of material spans roughly an hour. That footage sits alongside roughly ninety minutes of live material, which was filmed from each of the festival performances we conducted. Collectively, they work; you see the group behind the scenes making pre-show preparations, and you can then view the performances themselves. In a nice way, both are built on top of one another."

Q: Obviously, Turisas' sophomore album The Varangian Way was issued during May 2007. Are there any plans to issue a third full length?

A: "I think it's going to be awhile before we issue our third album (laughs). At the moment, we'll be touring for quite some time. Right now, our plans are to finish this touring cycle alongside DRAGONFORCE by the summer of 2009. Following that, we'll take a break to start focusing upon writing new songs, and subsequently entering production. From mid 2009 until the end of 2009, there'll likely be a gap. We won't tour much, but will focus upon writing new tracks, and cutting our third album."

Q: So Turisas won't likely release its third album until 2010?

A: "Yeah, that sounds realistic."

Turisas Embarks on Tour, New Video Online

Finnish folk metal masters Turisas has just kicked off in the UK. It will take your beloved, brave warriors first through UK/Ireland in September/October, then the US & Canada in November/December until the final leg of the tour hits mainland Europe in early 2009. The band will be direct support for Dragonforce.

Vocalist Warlord Nygard states: “Fresh from the first show in Oxford, we're sitting here in backstage drinking the first beers! The gig was awesome, and we're really glad to be on tour once again.

"The summer was very busy - after having got used to spending our summers at festivals around Europe for years, we faced an exciting change as this summer with most of the festival shows taking place in our home country Finland. The whole summer was caught on film and the result is our new DVD: the festival performances, the behind the scenes material, and also some interviews and other summer activities around Finland.

"We also made a re-recording of the track 'Battle Metal' and did a video clip to it based on material our fans had sent us. If you want, you can keep on sending us links to what ever material you come up with and we’ll put them up on our site. Or if you want to send us something by snail mail, you can find the postal address on our site.

"The tour with Dragonforce is very extensive, and will keep us busy for the coming months and take us from Britain to North-America and all across Europe. We'll try to post some blog material for you to see on our video blog at www.royalartistclub.com/turisas, so check it out and come down to the shows!."

The new video for “Battle Metal 2008” has been launched now. It is high time to finally have an official video-clip for this battle hymn which is also a tribute to the band’s dedicated fans (without whom there is obviously no such thing as a crowd favourite). So, watch this now on Youtube.

The audio version of “Battle Metal 2008” will only be available on the limited edition of Turisas first-ever DVD release, “A Finnish Summer With Turisas.” which will be released on the following dates:

Germany / Austria / Switzerland / Benelux / Italy: Friday, October 31, 2008.
UK / France / Greece / Denmark / Norway / rest of Europe: Monday, November 3, 2008.
Spain / Portugal: Tuesday, November 4, 2008.
Sweden / Finland / Hungary: Wednesday, November 5, 2008.
