Has anyone else here heard of them, I THINK they are quite new, and I have heard a few of there songs, and found them exquisite :P ^.^ Anyone else share my opinion? :P
#3
They are not new, fool. They've been around since 1995.

And they do indeed pwn.

But you should've done a seach, theres tons of threads on them.

Actually, I did some digging on them, and they haven't been really 'around' since 1995, but since 2000-2001, and if you notice I said 'Think' :P But yea, sorry I didn't do a search
#6
Well I know that now, I am look at the other threads about them, I only found out about them yesterday, and have been playing them non-stop, hmm.
#8
If you like them, check out Wintersun as well, Jari Maenpaa's other project. (Which I would say is better than Ensiferum).

Yeah, you are. S/T >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Iron by far. Does anyone know if the stuff with Petri Lindroos is as good as Jari's work? Does it fit the Ensiferum style?

No offense,but you sir are a poser, seriously.

Victory Songs owns! One More Magic Potion is really good. I think Petri is "better" for Ensiferum than Jari, he fits better in Wintersun.

8 days till Victory Songs YIPPEE!

No I agree with you, S/T seemed boring to me and I didn't listen to it as much as Iron.

Lindroos was on Iron? I thought Jari did Iron too. If not, my mistake. I have Iron, and the S/T, and I much prefer the S/T.

into battle is parhaps one of my favorite songs of all time, its just awesome Treacherous gods is good listening too Have yet to check out victory songs but i'm sure Ensiferum could never disappoint me.
#19
Token of Time, Abandoned and LAI LAI HEI >> all
Although, well every single song absolutly kicks a$$. \m/
Holy sh!t I just love them
^ seconded.

Äh, Sie wollen also mit Schlitz.
#20
Guardians of Fate is my favourite song when Jari was with them, But i honestly think that Petri is a better fit for the band, it still has the same viking/folk feel to it, but petris vocals just make it sound that much more powerful, and i think Dragonheads is the best song with Petri.

one of my friends wouldnt let me play turok 2 for the n64 with him so i threw my controller at the back of his head and hit him pretty hard.

#21

I love me some Ensiferum.

I didn't really know about them besides just seeing the name, until after my friend got me into Wintersun, and I don't think he even knows about Ensiferum.

But, yea, Jari's amazing. He's a fantastic player.

Ughh everybody in the metal kids in my city are obsessed with these guys.Their lame in my opinion, Wintersun is pretty good though, not as poppy and bland.

I thought Victory Songs was going to be terrible, to my suprise it is very solid.



Yes, who knew Petri wouldn't suck at folk metal? It is an incredible album.


Luckily, I still thought Jari was in the band until I heard Wintersun, so I had no bias.


Jari leaving was a good thing in the long run. Instead of one awesome Ensiferum, we still get awesome Ensiferum and Wintersun.


Petri actually doing great in another genre gives me hope for Frederik (Arch Enemy guy) in Opeth.

There is another Ensiferum thread, by the way.

Ensiferum is poppy? That's news to me. I thought Wintersun has just as many melodies and no folk influences, making it even more accessible.

Ensiferum is not the least bit poppy, thats the one of the most idiotic things I've heard this year... In my opinion, they're one of the most solid bands in Modern Metal.
#28
If you know about Ensiferum and Wintersun... You'll have to know about Norther some day or an other!


And hmm.... 'Token of Time' owns!

I love Ensiferum, but I only have Iron, Ensiferum and Victory Songs so I haven't heard the older material. I prefer Petri to Jari, Petri's vocals are t3h sex.
NOPE.

If you like ensiferum check out Finntroll.

I like Jari's stuff more overall, though it used to be the other way around. I love the Dragonheads EP however, the CD that got me into Ensiferum.

I listen to Ensiferum everyday. Some real good tracks in the Jari days. Haven't really heard much else.

Great music.
I truly am my own redeemer
Blindly I follow none but myself
Without fear I am
Unhallowed be my name

Myself am hell and hell I shall unleash
I laugh at Thee to scorn
Mock Thy majesty
Pour forth my chalice ov victory

Battle Song + One More Magic Potion + Iron = ftw definitely.

I especially like the part when he's talking about taking the devil's berries lol.

So Victory Songs is my first full album by Ensiferum, and it's amazing. I've heard some of the stuff Jari did with them and that was pretty epic too. I think I'm going to get Iron soon...
#37
