Ensiferum

Ensiferum

Profile:
Folk metal band from Helsinki, Finland.

Ensiferum's Black/Death/Folk Metal hybrid was first born in 1995 when Markus Toivonen (guitar), Sauli Savolainen (bass) and Kimmo Miettinen (drums) got together to form an innovative band. The following year, Jari Mäenpää joined as a vocalist (and second guitarist) and the first self-titled demo was released.

Before releasing their second demo tape in 1999, Jukka-Pekka Miettinen replaced Sauli Savolainen on bass and ex-Arthemesia drummer Oliver Fokin swapped positions with Kimmo Miettinen. The band continued playing and recorded a third demo, "Hero in a Dream", which was noticed by underground (and non) magazines which allowed the band to gain popularity and sign a deal with Spinefarm Records.

Finally, Meiju Enho joined as keyboard player for the band and they were now able to record their epic, self-titled debut "Ensiferum" in 2001.

Current line-up:
Markus Toivonen - Guitar, Vocals (1995 - )
Petri Lindroos - Guitar, Vocals (2004 - )
Sami Hinkka - Bass (2004 - )
Janne Parviainen - Drums (2005 - )

Searching for the japanese pressing of Ensiferum's self-titled album, which contains a bonus cover track of Judas Priest's song "Breaking the Law". I will be willing to pay at least 100 Euros/115 USD for a copy of the japanese pressing. If anyone has this version of the album and would like to sell it, please send me a message and i'm sure we can work something out, thanks.
