Spread the metal:

TURISAS has finished recording their upcoming, as yet untitled third album (TBA). The new album was recorded between at Sound Supreme Studio in Finland and mixed by the incredible Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost etc.). The album was produced by vocalist and songwriter Mathias “Warlord” Nygård. The album is due to be released worldwide on Century Media Records in early 2011. Complete information on the album title, release date and all other details will follow very soon!

Along with releasing a new album, TURISAS is set to join Cradle of Filth on a US tour during February-March 2011. The other supporting bands on this trek are Nachtmystium and Daniel Lioneye.

Warlord Nygård comments:
“After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album, I’m happy to tell you that we’re DONE! The workload has been enormous, and at times I’ve wished I’d known better, formed a punk rock band and kept things simple! But to achieve real progress, you really have to dig deep and see what you’re made of. Take bites so big, you almost choke. We’ve stayed true to our ideology of releasing music only when we have something new to come out with, not repeating ourselves or just copying what we’ve done in the past to feed the market. Now that we’re done with studios, we’re all extremely excited to get back on the road again, and as our latest visit to North America is long overdue, coming over in January with Cradle is something we’re all very much looking forward to. We had a great time touring with them in Europe in 2009, so this should be killer! Now we only have to figure out how to play these new songs!!”

Earlier this fall, TURISAS offered up some new material as the band released the digital-only single “Supernaut”, a cover of a classic Black Sabbath song. The track, originally recorded for a special Sabbath tribute album by Metal Hammer UK, is now available on all digital European, North American and Australian platforms including iTunes (www.itunes.com/turisas) and more!
