PostSubject: ENSIFERUM - FROM AFAR   Sat Jul 11, 2009 2:00 pm



Finnish Folk Metal Masters are going to dominate yet again with their upcoming album "From Afar"
It's due on September 9 via Spinefarm Records. The CD was produced by Tero Kinnunen (NIGHTWISH, AMORPHIS) and Janne Joutsenniemi ('Victory Songs' producer) and was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, SENTENCED, AMORPHIS).

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. By The Dividing Stream
02. From Afar
03. Twilight Tavern
04. Heathen Throne
05. Elusive Reaches
06. Stone Cold Metal
07. Smoking Ruins
08. Tumman Virran Taa
09. The Longest Journey (Heathen Throne Part II)
10. Vandraren (limited-edition bonus track; NORDMAN cover)


So. I Think September is going to be the greatest month of 2009.
Sonata Arctica concert, Sonata Arctica album, and a lot more I can't remember, but as of now, nothing gets me more happier than the thought of a NEW ENSIFERUM ALBUM!

FYE stores may have it, if there's one near you.

However, it's almost always cheaper and easier to order it online Smile

Also, I'm excited by a new Ensiferum album >Very Happy Petri did really well on Victory Songs, so I think it will be epic \m/

Not to mention Hinkka's lyrics are as good as Jari's.
Hinkka focuses more on the alcohol and viking themes though, Jari's lyrics were more personal and philosophical. (aka: Token of Time, Abandoned, Tears)

Yeah true, however the sound is still 'Ensiferum' in my opinion, even if the lyrics now fit into a more solid viking mold than Jari's style.

I'd have to say they've released more consistent songs.
I guess it took the first two albums to find that consistency, even though some tracks on Iron and Ensiferum are ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECES!

I enjoy the fact that Iron has the same feel as Wintersun's Wintersun in many of the songs. Both excellent albums for me.

So? I got a job; haha. It would have cost a lot more locally. I don't buy CDs much, but this one was a must-buy.

Also, why you being a prick? I'm just happy about it -.-

If I can't afford it at first, i'll try my best to get the rest of the money needed.
No skin off my back though, i've never been short on cash. Razz

Get your education kids! Then screw it all and follow what you think you can do right. Razz

Got the album yesterday, i've listened to it probably 10 times so far Smile

From Afar might just dethrone Victory Songs as my favorite Ensiferum album

Headbang

Definitely recommend it to all metal fans!
