Turisas finish recording new album

Turisas has finished recording the upcoming, as yet untitled third album (TBA). The new album was recorded between March and September 2010 at Sound Supreme Studio, Finland, and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost etc.) at Fascination Street, Sweden.

The album was produced by vocalist and main songwriter Mathias “Warlord” Nygård. It  is due to be released worldwide in early 2011.

Along with releasing a new album, Turisas is to join Cradle of Filth on a US tour in February-March 2011. The other supporting bands on this tour are Nachtmystium and Daniel Lioneye.

Warlord Nygård comments:

“After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album, I’m happy to tell you that we’re DONE! The workload has been enormous, and at times I’ve wished I’d known better, formed a punk rock band and kept things simple! But to achieve real progress, you really have to dig deep and see what you’re made of. Take bites so big, you almost choke. We’ve stayed true to our ideology of releasing music only when we have something new to come out with, not repeating ourselves or just copying what we’ve done in the past to feed the market. Now that we’re done with studios, we’re all extremely excited to get back on the road again, and as our latest visit to North America is long overdue, coming over in January with Cradle is something we’re all very much looking forward to. We had a great time touring with them in Europe in 2009, so this should be killer! Now we only have to figure out how to play these new songs!!”
