Ensiferum Unsung Heroes
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Ensiferum, the highly visual troupe who've long been a market leader when it comes to stirring, armour-plated anthems, release their fifth studio album, Unsung Heroes. Produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Apocalyptica, etc.), this is the hour-plus follow-up to 2009's From Afar, and sees the Finnish five-piece 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 & 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.
