Turisas announces Australian tour

Ask and ye shall receive – after so many requests, TURISAS is finally doing the band’s first tour in Australia. Fresh from the studio, the band is coming for three gigs at the end of May. Warlord Nygård comments:

Fucking hell! It’s finally happening. We’ve been asked to take the trip to the complete opposite side of the globe for a long time, but for a reason or another it’s never been possible. I don’t need to tell you how excited we are about finally making it. We’ve heard rumours about a strong following down there, so now it’s time to show us what all that is about! We’re taking a break from the studio and the recording of our forthcoming third album to spend less time in your country than it takes us to travel there, so the expectations are high. We for our part will most definitely be bringing you a show with all the extra energy piled up from a year off the road. We’re hungry, we’re determined, and we’re ready. We sure hope you are too!

Don your war paint, grab your battle axe and prepare for a proper Scandinavian party – join the quest to Oz and beyond in May 2010.

The tour includes the following dates:

Friday 21st May – The Globe Theatre

Saturday 22nd May – The Factory Theatre (All Ages)

Sunday 23rd May – Billboard the Venue

One of Terrorizer’s “Artists of the Decade” – Battle Metal among “100 Great Albums”

Finnish battle metallers TURISAS are part of Terrorizer’s Secret History Of The Decade, a special issue of the British magazine providing an essential guide to extreme metal from 2000 to 2009. It goes through the last ten years’ biggest musical movements including the most essential albums and artists.

Among some of metal scene’s most legendary acts, Turisas was chosen as one of the eight Artists of the Decade and the band’s 2004 debut album Battle Metal made it to the 100 Great Albums of the decade.

TURISAS vocalist Mathias “Warlord” Nygård states:

Wow. Being honoured like this by one of the absolute top metal magazines in the world is quite something. Doing well in end-of-the-year-summaries is amazing in itself, but out of a whole DECADE… I’m just speechless. Our hails to Terrorizer for this honour and be prepared, we’ve already set our eyes on the 2019 issue! We really aim at nailing the next decade, and our first blow – a third album – is just around the corner.
