From the Promoter
Ensiferum (meaning "sword bearing") is a Finnish folk metal band from Helsinki. The members of the band label themselves as "heroic folk metal." Since their formation, Ensiferum has released five full-length albums, one EP, one compilation, three singles, and three demo albums.
Metal and folk melodies are played on lead guitar or keyboard, overlaying heavier heavy metal backing rhythms such as the classic gallop. The band also include fairly frequent use of acoustic guitars, usually at the beginnings of songs. The lyrical themes of their music most often relate to fantastical, archaic, or historic stories that can most often be grouped in with Nordic concepts, usually with heroic sentiment.
Metal band formed in March 1990 in Athens, Greece.
Disbanded in October 2003 & reunited in 2007.
Members were also involved in Thou Art Lord and Chaostar.
