June 26, 2013, 6 years ago
TURISAS will release their new album, Turisas2013, on August 21st in Finland, and August 26th in Europe, while the UK will follow on September 2nd and North America on September 3rd.
The album was again produced by vocalist Mathias Nygård and the majority of the album recorded by Nygård and guitarist Jussi Wickström in a remote house outside of Helsinki that worked as the Turisas2013 command centre and headquarters. Additional recordings were done in three other studios: the drums at Atomic Spa Studio and orchestral recordings at 5 by 5 Studio, both in Helsinki. A lot of vocals and numerous additional elements were tracked at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna where Turisas also recorded The Varangian Way and Stand Up And Fight.

With Turisas2013 the band deliberately aimed for a more organic sound, Mathias “Warlord” Nygård further comments: “When it comes to the production it's just the opposite of the polished and massive Stand Up And Fight. It's raw and dry and in your face, but still maintaining that Turisas-largeness. People attest us that we are a great live band and we wanted the album to be based more around that than orchestral massiveness. It's our most varied record to date and even if some of the songs sound very different, I think the common thread is that every single one has a lot of energy to it.”
The mix and mastering was done in London at Orgone Studios with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano who previously worked with Ghost, Cathedral, Primodial and Ulver, just to name a few.”
While the band will be playing select festivals during the summer season, the release of Turisas2013 will be supported by extensive European touring. After joining the Heidenfest 2013 they will play their own UK headlining run.

Jussi Wickström - guitar
