'UNSUNG HEROES' BY ENSIFERUM IS OUT TODAY!
The long-awaited album Unsung Heroes by Finnish heroic metallers ENSIFERUM is being released today!
The band's fifth full-length album, represents both an evolution and a refinement for the band, who have made the biggest-sounding record of their nearly twenty-year career. "Crushing metal combined with majestic and beautiful folk and orchestration parts make this album something really unique in the whole genre," says bassist Sammi Hink.
Unsung Heroes was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Apocalyptica), and features artwork by Kristian Wahlin, as well as a medley of special guests including members of Die Apokalyptischen Reiter plus legendary Finnish singer/actor, Vesa-Matti Loiri.
“…Mount the longboats, light the torches, and prepare for battle,” warns Metal Injection while Stereokiller boasts: “This is nothing short of amazing, beautiful in every way possible. ”Elaborates Blistering in an 8/10 review: “ENSIFERUM weren't necessarily the first band out of the epic/folk gate, but they're probably the best… One jaunt through 2009's thoroughly captivating From Afar supports that notion, as the Finns were able to brandish a mighty sonic sword that kept the speed on 10, the jovial acoustics 'a hustling, and above all else, managed to bring a sort of mild sophistication to a style that is usually anything but. Essentially, ENSIFERUM doesn't play the stupid, folk metal game, and on Unsung Heroes, they manage to stay the course with sterling results.

UK ROCKERS The Treatment will play a headline show at The Underworld in London on Saturday, December 15th – a Christmas outing to celebrate what has been an extraordinary year in the lives of the five young musicians…

Says Treatment frontman Matt Jones: “I was on our tour bus in Las Vegas the other night, and it suddenly struck me just how amazing it is that we’re out here playing these huge venues with bands we’ve all grown up listening to and admiring, and that we’re going down really well with the US crowds and making lots of new friends. We’re living out our dreams and the great thing is, we’re doing it as a group of friends and we’re doing it through music.
“Oh, and I got to celebrate my 21st birthday on the road here. Not only was I taped to a chair and had champagne poured over me by Tommy Lee, but The Crue camp also arranged for me to be entertained by two strippers in clown make-up – and I’m terrified of clowns! It was quite some experience. What a night!”
THE TREATMENT’s latest single / video, ‘Shake The Mountain’, is now set for release on November 5th via Spinefarm; it comes complete with two bonus acoustic tracks, previously unreleased.Following this, from November 29th – December 11th, the Cambridge-based band will be Special Guesting with Thin Lizzy in the UK, prior to their Underworld appearance on the 15th; the full line-up for this show will be confirmed shortly.
