Ensiferum will release their fifth studio album, entitled Unsung Heroes, on August 27th via Spinefarm Records. Unsung Heroes was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, SENTENCED, APOCALYPTICA, etc.), and is the follow-up to 2009’s From Afar album. The album finds the band pushing their signature sound to bold new heights of drama and excess.
A cinematic experience from first note to last , Unsung Heroes takes the listener on a journey of genuine light and shade, with the 16 minute-plus ‘Passion Proof Power’ showing that when it comes to the epic statement, Ensiferum are very much in the front-line, swords at the ready.
“We’ve tried to push the different aspects of what we do as far as we can,” reflects the band, “the sonic scope is wider than ever. The folk elements go further down that path and the metallic parts will absolutely rip your face off!”
Once again, album art has been supplied by Kristian Wahlin, with featured special guests including members of APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER, plus legendary Finnish singer/actor, VESA-MATTI LOIRI.
