Here is a short making of clip of our “In My Sword I Trust” music video shooting session with Grupa13 in Poland. The shoot took place in a really nice medieval castle and it went really well, even though it rained a lot. It was great to work with such a professional team and we were lucky to get such great actors to help us out. Thank you once again!
The video tells about how ordinary town people rise up and rebel against a greedy and cruel king and the upper class. There will be swords, corpses and drinking; pretty much all you need for a great video! We are looking forward to presenting this new Ensiferum anthem to our fans around the world with the best music video we have ever made. Folk on!

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 theSpinefarm 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 2009’s ‘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 & 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, with featured special guests including members of Apokalyptischen Reiter plus legendary Finnish singer & actor, Vesa-Matti Loiri.
Album Track listing:
02. In My Sword I Trust
03. Unsung Heroes
04. Burning Leaves
05. Celestial Bond
06. Retribution Shall Be Mine
07. Star Queen (Celestial Bond part II)
09. Last Breath
10. Passion Proof Power

Greetings from studio!
Ensiferum is recording their fifth full length album.Band started the work at famous Finnish Petrax-studio(COB,Nightwish) last week with producer Hiili Hiilesmaa(HIM,Sentenced) who is also mixing the album.
From Petrax-studio the band will move on for 2 other locations in Hämeenlinna-area.
New album is going to be released in fall 2012 and it will contain 10 tracks.
Few guests on the album are going to be members from Die Apokalyptischen Reiter and legendary Finnish singer and actor Vesa-Matti Loiri.
You can follow how the recording is going from Spinefarm Youtube-channel where Ensiferum is releasing new video diary every week.First part can be seen here:
Ensiferumin viidennen, vielä nimeämättömän, albumin äänitykset alkoivat viime viikolla. Alkuvaiheessa bändi työskentelee Petrax-studiolla, jossa äänityksistä vastaa Hiili Hiilesmaa. Hiilesmaa myös tuottaa ja miksaa levyn. Petraxilta bändi siirtyy Hämeenlinnan Sound Supreme ja Yellow House –studioille. Ensi syksynä julkaistava uusi albumi tulee sisältämään kymmenen biisiä, joista osaa alettiin työstää jo vuonna 2007.
Albumilla vierailee mm. saksalaisen Die Apokalyptischen Reiter-yhtyeen jäseniä sekä legendaarinen Vesa-Matti Loiri.
Äänitysten edistymistä ja bändin fiiliksiä voi seurata bändin kotisivuilta ladattavan ilmaisen Mobile Twilight Tavernin avulla sekä Spinefarmin youtube-kanavalta viikottain ilmestyvän studiopäiväkirjan muodossa. Ensimmäinen osa löytyy täältä:
