Ok, well, Now I've spelt it correctly. So yea, anyone else heard of or like these guys? I reckon they're pretty cool folk metal. Weird accordion solos though.

Turisas are awsome!

I actually wrote the original Turisas album review. ages ago.

After many months of been enthralled by 'Battle Metal', i have managed to get ahold of their new album, The Varangian Way.

wikipedia -

The album is based on a concept story which is fictional, but strongly tied to real historical persons and events. It's a journey of a group of Northmen, who travel down the East-European river route through the lands of modern day East Europe. This was an important trade route in the 9th-11th centuries and the Northmen going in this direction were called Varangians who took this route to Kiev and finally Constantinople. The album follows this journey and the songs are events that take place on the road. As much as it is a journey of these men, it is also a journey in a search for self and identity - something which the protagonist is going through throughout the story. The varying surroundings can clearly be heard on the album as it features a lot of influences from the different cultures and people our travellers would have encountered on their journey.


First impressions (only listened through once) is that i dont think its as good as Battle Metal, the album is a lot shorter and it doesnt feel 'connected' as a concept album should.

However, i didnt like Battle Metal when i first got it, and put it on my shelf for a while, as time went by, i grew to love it, and turisas became one of my favourite bands. I really think this album will grow on me too!

I got hold of the Varangian Way last week, and i MUCH prefer it to Battle Metal, i find its more epic (Miklgard Overture, Fields of Gold) and i dont know, i think i'm a sucker for concept albums

I've gotten the feeling that Turisas are pretty well known, but I might be wrong. I like them.
