Track Of The Day: Turisas
Battle metal heroes Turisas are about to release a new album. And they’re offering the title song as the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day.
The album, Stand Up And Fight, is to be released by Century Media on February 28. It’s the Finnish band’s third album, and this is what mainman Mathias Nygard say about it:
“Stand Up And Fight is a loose continuation of the story from The Varangian Way (2007), and picks up where the previous one left us, in Constantinople. However, it is not a sequel as such. In general, the songs are much more universal and deal with topics that can be placed just as tightly into the modern world as in the 11th century Byzantine Empire. Stand Up And Fight has much more to offer the contemporary listener.”
On this record, Nygard (vocals) is again joined by guitarist Jussi Wickstrom, bassist Hannes Horma, violin player Olli Vanska and drummer Tuomas Lehtonen. And you can see them live in England during March. The dates are:
Thu. 17: London Islington O2 Academy
Fri. 18: Norwich Waterfront
Sat. 19: Nottingham Rock City
