FINNTROLL, ENSIFERUM head up The Finnish Metal Tour 2

published on August 17, 2010 by Darren Cowan
Following a successful first run in 2010, The Finnish Metal Tour will once again unleash itself on North America in early 2011. Dubbed “The Finnish Metal Tour 2”, and presented by title sponsor Decibel Magazine, the tour will feature co-headliners Finntroll (Century Media) and Ensiferum (Spinefarm). Additional support will come from Barren Earth (Peaceville), and Rotten Sound (Relapse). The tour will start on January 31st 2011 in Orlando FL, and conclude on March 4th in Raleigh NC.

FINNTROLL have returned with their highly anticipated new slab of folk-rooted metal hymns entitled Nifelvind that is now available everywhere. It was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios (Apocalyptica, Amorphis, Ensiferum) in Helsinki, Finland and mastered by Mika Jussila (Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica, HIM) at Finnvox Studios. The album cover artwork was done again by the band's own guitarist Skrymer and visually captures the true FINNTROLL spirit perfectly. The band toured throughout North America this past April with Moonsorrow and Swallow the Sun. Head over now to www.myspace.com/officialfinntroll in order to stream new tracks and view their tour itinerary.

Finnish folk metallers ENSIFERUM released their 4th album “From Afar” on September 8, 2009 via Spinefarm Records. The CD was produced by Tero Kinnunen (Nightwish, Amorphis) and Janne Joutsenniemi, who produced the band's previous offering, Victory Songs and mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Amorphis). Ensiferum completed their first headline tour of the USA this past November with Blackguard and Swashbuckle. Visit the band’s MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/officialensiferum to check out tracks, and view the latest tour dates and news as it becomes available.

Ensiferum bassist Sami Hinkka had this to say about the upcoming tour: "Greetings from the north our brothers and sisters of the new continent! The time has come to unite forces with our fellow countrymen and raid your cities with unforeseen power. The amount of alcohol consumption on this tour is going to be horrifying, so don't forget to bring your drinking horn! Grab your swords and hold them high with pride and join the ultimate metal event of 2011. Folk on!"

Tickets for the tour will be available starting August 17th, 2010 via an exclusive internet presale on www.enterthevault.com.
