Album art for Turisas2013

Another week is upon us and this is the time we admire musicians fit to grace the very halls of Valhalla and this week it’s my favourite MOFO (Musicians of Finnish Origin) Turisas.

An obvious choice for this feature I think you’ll agree but I was wearing my Turisas t-shirt so I thought it was time.

They premiered their new album in full on a Finnish radio station earlier this week and it’s an absolute belter, one of my most anticipated albums this year.

These guys are pioneers of the genre, along with Amon Amarth they are the first name that pops into the head when Viking Metal is mentioned.

They’re going to be hitting the UK again this October with a string of dates at the below venues:

08.10.2013 (UK) Bristol – The Fleece
09.10.2013 (UK) London – O2 Academy Islington
10.10.2013 (UK) Nottingham – Rock City
11.10.2013 (UK) Glasgow – Cathouse
12.10.2013 (UK) Manchester – Club Academy

They debuted the first song from their new album this year at Download and we loved it, have a listen and tell us what you think.
