Ensiferum are a Finish melodic folk metal outfit hailing from Helsinki. Formed in 1995, the band consists of founding member and frontman Markus Toivonen alongside harsh vocalist and guitarist Petri Lindroos, bassist Sami Hinkka, keyboard-player Emmi Silvennoinen, and drummer Janne Parviainen.
Creating fantasy-styled music filled with lyrics about Norse gods and ideas or historical stories, Ensiferum are one of the Scandinavian folk metal scene's pioneering forces, having released five full LPs over their 20 years together. Their last effort, 'One Man Army', came out in February 2015. They play UK gig dates in February 2016. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.
