Check out some selected international media feedback for “Turisas2013”:

”… Turisas2013 is a wild and wacky grab bag of impressive songcraft and eccentric imagination, with diligent performances and a punchy mix.“ (Metal Hammer UK)

“TURISAS is ready to surprise you once more with a varied and unique album, full of talent and Rock’n’Roll.” (Metal Obs France)

”A mixture that appears to be titanically visionary is taking the reins on the 4th longplayer.” (Sonic Seducer Germany)

“TURISAS’ new album is neither overproduced nor monotonous and shows the maturity of the band.” (Young Guitar Magazine Japan)

“With ‘Turisas2013’ the listener is attacked from behind.” (Inferno Finland)

“The album tracks have more straightforwardness and less epic roar.” (SUE Finland)

“TURISAS have thrown the same ingredients into the pot like on the previous three albums, but added new spices where the prog influences seem to emerge more clearly.” (Soundi Finland)

“If you are expecting ‘Battle Metal II” you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a new album, however, that reflects TURISAS as they are now, you will love ‘Turisas2013’.” (

“Let’s cut to the chase. Turisas’ “Turisas2013” is a clear contender for Album Of The Year honors. (…) Find this album. Buy it, then allow yourself to get swept up in the storytelling and bravado of it all. Then buy two copies and give them to friends.” (

While the band was playing selected festivals during the summer season the release of “Turisas2013” will be supported by extensive European touring. After joining the Heidenfest 2013 they will play a UK headlining run.
