  ENSIFERUM REVEAL ARTWORK AND DETAILS FOR FIFTH STUDIO ALBUM 'UNSUNG HEROES'
28th June 2012

ensiferum unsung heroes



Ensiferum, the highly visual troupe who've long been a market leader when it comes to stirring, armour-plated anthems, will have their fifth studio album released through the Spinefarm label on August 27th 2012.

Titled 'Unsung Heroes' and produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Apocalyptica, etc.), this is the hour-plus follow-up to 2009s 'From Afar', and sees the Finnish five-piece – founded in 1995 – pushing their signature sound to bold new heights of drama and excess.

A cinematic experience from first note to last, 'Unsung Heroes' takes the listener on a journey of genuine light and shade, with the 16 minute-plus 'Passion Proof Power' showing that when it comes to the epic statement, Ensiferum are very much in the front-line, swords at the ready.

"We've tried to push the different aspects of what we do as far as we can," reflects the band, "the sonic scope is wider than ever. The folk elements go further down that path and the Metallic parts will absolutely rip your face off!"

Once again, album art has been supplied by Kristian Wahlin (see above), with featured special guests including members of Apokalyptischen Reiter plus legendary Finnish singer and actor, Vesa-Matti Loiri.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston.
