Crimfall To Support Turisas in the UK

Crimfall have been added to the bill for the two Turisas UK shows in March. These dates – the first time Crimfall have appeared over here – are part of the Turisas ‘Stand Up And Fight Tour 2011’.

The March shows are:

17th O2 Academy Islington, London
19th Rock City, Nottingham

Crimfall are visiting the UK in support of new studio album ‘The Writ Of Sword’, due out March 21st – the Finnish outfit’s first release for the Spinefarm label.

Produced BY the band themselves and featuring many well-known names from the Finnish folk metal scene, ‘The Writ Of Sword’ is essentially one epic number divided into nine shorter sections: an unashamedly OTT journey to the cold & merciless north, drawing on a wide variety of musical genres – from brutal black metal right through to folk music, orchestrated, classical interludes, angelic vocal melodies & spoken passages, the whole thing steeped in the sort of atmosphere & grandeur more typically found on big-budget movie soundtracks.

Crimfall were formed in Finland in 2007 and released their debut album, ‘As The Path Unfolds’, in 2009, with Moonsorrow member Henri Sorvali handling bass duties. Right from the start, the band’s signature blend of beauty and power was securely in place – an approach that has been continued (and indeed amplified!) on ‘The Writ Of Sword’.
