The biggest, boldest and most gloriously extravagant album of the band’s career, “Stand Up And Fight” erupts like the ultimate heavy metal musical, with many layers of orchestration and choral harmonies adding to these songs’ intense sense of drama and mischief. Although remaining true to the spirit of past TURISAS records, the new album, which was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth/Katatonia) at Fascination Street in Sweden, takes the Finns to a whole new level of depth and bravado, as their unmistakable sound expands before our very ears, consistently conjuring up vivid images of the Vikings’ ongoing adventures.

In case you are interested to learn more please check out an in depth interview:

Part 2: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjuSGCxyrcc
The interview was filmed at the Dechenhoehle in Iserlohn.

Another step on the mighty Finns march towards world domination is their current North American tour with Cradle Of Filth and Nachtmystium as well as touring (mainly) Germany, Austria, Switzerland with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter. Keep your eyes peeled for more dates and festivals!
