Turisas Commence Recording New Album

Finnish warmongers TURISAS continue to establish their definitive brand of battle metal as they begin tracking for their eagerly awaited third full-length album, which is tentatively set for an early fall release. The group are currently holed up at Sound Supreme Studios in Hämeenlinna, Finland – the same studio where they recorded their previous album The Varangian Way (2007). TURISAS have just posted the first part of their ongoing video series documenting the entire recording process. Click HERE to check it out. Vocalist, songwriter and producer Mathias Nygård comments: “After a nine-month break from touring to fully focus on songwriting, we’ve finally moved forward and have now started recording. It’s going to be a long project and is bound to keep us all busy through the summer, but believe me; it will be worth the wait. With three years between albums, there’s been enough time to find a fresh angle and new ideas not to repeat ourselves or albums we’ve done in the past. The songs rock big time, but the epic elements aren’t going anywhere – it’s going to sound larger than ever before. The leap forward is going to be just as big as between Battle Metal and The Varangian Way. Stay tuned to our YouTube page and http://www.myspace.com/turisasofficial for new video reports from the studio and we can’t wait to unleash this beast in a few months.”
