I Like Viking Metal
I had the pleasure of viewing and listening to Ensiferum. When a bunch of blokes take the stage in kilts and a bevy of flesh, you can not go wrong! This music is brutal in a very old timey way. It makes you want to grab a large ax, don headgear made of horns, pull your longboat into the sea and go plundering. The music drives you at a rampant pace. It's unrelenting. Petri Lindroos on vocals. Markus Toivonen on guitar and vocals. Sami Hinkka on bass and vocals. Janne Parvianinen on drums. Emmi Silvennoinen (who looked liked she wanted to be anywhere but here) on keyboards. The bloodlust flowed off the stage and into the crowd with waves that rivaled the North Sea.
