Brace yourself for the ‘Path to Victory’ tour! Legendary folk-metallers Ensiferum are embarking on a brand new road trip through North America, and they’re bringing some friends along with them.
Joining Ensiferum will be the like-minded powerhouse metallers Kalmah, the super screechy talents of Abigail Williams, and the metalcore brutalists of Aenimus. Combine all those bands together and you have yourself one hell of a line-up, with more synths, accordions, speedy riffs, and high-passion choruses than one would think humanly possible in a single setting. Fans are in for an extreme treat with this one!
In one respect or another, all of these bands have been paying their dues heavily in recent times. Kalmah have been on the road extensively this past summer, and are set for more separate tour dates this coming October and November. Meanwhile, Abigail Williams have a forthcoming album titled Walk Beyond the Dark due for release this November, and Aenimus will be working off of the success their most recent release Dreamcatcher. So expect victorious bouts of passion from all parties concerned.
As for Ensiferum themselves, the band have a long-standing reputation for creating triumphant anthems of the metal variety, and this will be the last tour they undertake before entering the studio for the recording of their new album. Consider the last date of this tour less of an end and more of a beginning! Good to see them still going strong.
