ENSIFERUM released their new album ‘Two Paths‘ in September of 2017 via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has entered the worldwide charts, e.g. # 4 in Finland, # 9 in Germany, # 18 in Switzerland, # 35 in Canada and # 160 in the USA.

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of ENSIFERUM, and with ‘Two Paths‘ they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, ‘Two Paths‘ is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of ‘Two Paths‘ to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks ‘Don’t You Say’ and ‘God Is Dead’. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both ‘Two Paths‘ and its predecessor, ‘One Man Army‘. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.

ENSIFERUM line-up:
Petri Lindroos – Vocals/Guitar
Markus Toivonen – Guitar/Vocals
Sami Hinkka – Bass/Vocals
Janne Parviainen – Drums
