Ensiferum Recording New Album To See Release In 2015

Ensiferum has completed the writing process for an upcoming new album and Metal Blade Records debut.

With pre-production out of the way, the band is prepared to begin recording. Work will begin on September 8th at Astia Studio in Lappeenranta in Finland with producer Anssi Kippo. Fans can expect to hear new music at the beginning of January, 2015.

Bassist Sami Hinkka offers the following update: "Hi folks! Only a couple more weeks to go! We head to Astia Studio on 8th of September and recordings will take around five weeks.

"We had really good and creative pre production sessions with Anssi Kippo so now we are very well prepared to give 110% on each take in the studio. Because the songs were almost ready when we made the demo versions of them, Mr. Mikko Mustonen is already arranging orchestrations on top of those. Gotta love technology!

"There are still few minor details to arrange and couple of lines of lyrics to twist and turn but nothing can stop us anymore! We are convinced that this will be ground breaking album for us and the whole genre. (Modesty? What's that?)"

The album is tentatively scheduled for release worldwide on Metal Blade Records in early 2015. You can also catch the band live:
