Ensiferum announces 2019 North American headlining trek, “Two Paths Of Glory Tour”

– October 16th, 2018 –

After almost four years of absence in the States, Ensiferum has announced a North American headlining tour, featuring Septicflesh as direct support – with another opening band to be announced soon!

Sami Hinkka (bass) comments: “Hi folks! It’s been way too many years since we rocked with our North American warrior brothers and sisters! So early 2019 we will set sails and head to your shores.
And we are not coming alone. We will join forces with a brilliant and ass kicking bands: Septicflesh and a special guest! What a way to start a new year! This tour will leave its mark on the history of metal! So get your ticket in advance and get ready to mosh with us like there is no tomorrow.
Oh! And one more thing: on this tour, we have no chance to play in every city that we would want to, so we are doing our best to return to North America for a second time in 2019.
Stay tuned and see you soon! m/”

Ensiferum tour dates:
Jan. 31-Feb. 4 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – “70,000 Tons of Metal” cruise

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”

Behemoth and Kings County Brewers Collective join forces for “Wolf ov Siberia” Double IPA

– October 10th, 2018 –

Behemoth announces NYC and LA art exhibitions for new album, ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest’; ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest’ available now worldwide

Behemoth and Kings County Brewers Collective (Brooklyn, NY) have joined forces for a Double IPA, “Wolf ov Siberia”! From the most blasphemous depths of extreme metal comes a collaboration brew of epic proportions: “Wolf ov Siberia” pours pale gold in the glass, with a light lupulin haze. A blistering blast of bright lemon and crushed lime greets your nose, followed by grapefruit, melon and green pine from a megaload of Citra, Motueka and Centennial hops. Balanced by soft wheat and flaked rye, with a touch of savage bitterness on the finish, it’s fierce, fresh, and dangerously drinkable at a 7.7% ABV. “Wolf ov Siberia” beckons all Behemoth and beer fans – “come all ye wolves ov Siberia, we hail the flame, we hail the ice…”

Tony Bellis (co-founder, Kings County Brewers Collective) comments: “We love brewing a wide variety of different beer styles at KCBC and strive to constantly challenge our drinkers’ taste buds – in the same way that Behemoth has consistently pushed the boundaries of metal into brutal, uncharted territories over the years. Having been long time Behemoth fans, we’re incredibly excited to collaborate with them on this killer Double IPA.”

Behemoth mastermind Nergal adds: Behemoth global domination is still in full effect! After partnering with our friends at Perun to give you a unique craft experience, we thought why just brew beer for the lucky ones in Europe? Kings County Brewers Collective said they could delight the palate of the Americans too! Just in time for our album release October 5th, you’ll be seeing ‘Wolf ov Siberia’ at a bar near you!”

KCBC will host a “Wolf ov Siberia” can release party on October 15th at the KCBC Brewery & Taproom in Brooklyn, followed by a wider release to quality craft beer spots throughout the NYC metro area and beyond. For more information, please visit:

“Wolf ov Siberia” will also be available at Behemoth’s upcoming art exhibitions in NYC and LA (“Thou Art Darkest”), for their new album, I Loved You At Your Darkest. See below for more details; to RSVP, head over to: behemoth.pl/thouartdarkest

Released last week worldwide, I Loved You At Your Darkest is a crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema. The group’s most dynamic record yet, the album is extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release. Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa, I Loved You At Your Darkest can be previewed and purchased now at: behemoth.lnk.to/ILYAYD

Behemoth will be touring the USA in support of I Loved You At Your Darkest this October/November, by headlining the “Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.” trek, featuring special guests At the Gates and Wolves in the Throne Room.
