New Ensiferum album 17 replies

Finnish folk metal band Ensiferum have announced their upcoming sixth studio album, titled One Man Army. The band decided to take a different approach to recording the record, using predominantly analog recording.

Bassist Sami Hinkka said of the album:

"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'".

One Man Army is slated to be released on February 24, 2015 via Metal Blade Records.
