TURISAS: Performance Footage Of Brand New Song Available

November 1, 2010

Fan-filmed video footage of Finnish "battle metal" warriors TURISAS performing a brand new song, tentatively titled "The March Of The Varangian Guard", on October 29, 2010 at Pakkahuone in Tampere, Finland can be viewed below.

TURISAS recently completed work on its as-yet-untitled third album for an early 2011 release via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded between March and September 2010 at Sound Supreme studios in in Hämeenlinna, Finland, and was mixed by Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST) at Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden. The album was produced by vocalist and main songwriter Mathias "Warlord" Nygård.

TURISAS will embark on a U.S. tour in February/March 2011 as the support act for CRADLE OF FILTH. Also scheduled to appear on the bill are NACHTMYSTIUM (USA) and DANIEL LIONEYE (Finland). Mainland Europe and U.K. shows will follow in early 2011.

Commented Nygård: "After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album, I'm happy to tell you that we're DONE! The workload has been enormous, and at times I've wished I'd known better, formed a punk rock band and kept things simple! But to achieve real progress, you really have to dig deep and see what you're made of. Take bites so big, you almost choke.

"We've stayed true to our ideology of releasing music only when we have something new to come out with, not repeating ourselves or just copying what we've done in the past to feed the market. Now that we're done with studios, we're all extremely excited to get back on the road again, and as our latest visit to North America is long overdue, coming over in January with CRADLE is something we're all very much looking forward to. We had a great time touring with them in Europe in 2009, so this should be killer! Now we only have to figure out how to play these new songs!!"
