ENSIFERUM   
"UNSUNG HEROES"   
SPINEFARM RECORDS

I was very happy to find this release in my review pile. ENSIFERUM is a Folk Metal band
from Finland. These guys have been release amazing album after amazing album.
"UNSUNG HEROES" is no exception. This is the bands fifth studio release to date and also
the bands best outing so far. These guys mesh together majestic Folk & Orchestrated music
with some crushing Death Metal. The band sounds like they are playing with a huge
orchestra, because their sound is so massive. They will take you one journey with their
Viking influenced Folk Metal. Some of the tracks are done in a more Celtic style while
others are straight up brutal Death Metal. They combine different vocal styles as well. There
are clean melodic male vocals mixed with harsher Death growl styled vocals as well as some
angelic female vocals. If you are not a fan of Folk Metal or your new to this genre, you need
to give
ENSIFERUM a listen. These guys are at the top of their game are one of the best
Folk Metal bands out there. If you can catch these guys live then do it. I was lucky to catch
them one year at the
NEW ENGLAND METAL & HARDCORE FEST, when the
PAGAN FEST tour was part of it. If you think these guys are amazing on their albums, wait
to you see them live. One of the best bands I have ever scene live! They hooked me in from
that moment on! If your into bands like
ELUVEITIE, KORPIKLANNI & TURISAS then
your gonna love
ENSIFERUM!
