Finnish folk metallers ENSIFERUM will release their new album, “One Man Army”, on February 24, 2015 (one day earlier internationally) via Metal Blade Records. The CD was recorded between September and November at Astia Studio in Lappeenranta in Finland with producer Anssi Kippo.
Says ENSIFERUM bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka: “Recording process was long, hard, rewarding and full of incredible moments. Instruments were actually played and left as they were instead of creating tracks from hundreds of different takes, moving them to the grid and modifying things. Of course computers were used, but overall, we made everything as analog as possible. Listeners can experience a better sound and natural groove, something that we think most metal albums lack these days. Overall, the album sounds much more like a band playing live rather than “midi metal.'”
