Biography

Ensiferum - what name would suit a band playing battle metal better, than a name that in Latin means "the Swordbearer"?

After finding the band in 1995, Ensiferum's mastermind, guitarist/ main songwriter/ vocalist Markus Toivonen has taken the band safely through turmoils of line-up changes and busy schedules ever since. The band's career fully took flight in 2000 after ... Read more in Amazon's Ensiferum Store

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. R. Knight on 3 April 2009
Format: Audio CD
The other reviews focus around the changing of singers - I hadn't heard of Ensiferum until 4 weeks ago when my nephew introduced me to Victory Songs, an album he really liked.

This album is absolutely outstanding and exactly what I want from my music. It is well arranged and the production quality and balance is incredible for an unknown band (To me and quite a high proportion of metal fans in the UK I suspect).

Most importantly it is fun, exciting and makes me feel great when I listen to it. There are parts you can sing/scream/bellow along to while you're driving.

I can't compare new singers to old but I do know that the singing on this album is excellent with mostly Children of Bodom esque screeching/snarling during the verses and a combination of melodic vocals and grunts/screams (EPIC) choruses.
The musicians are all clearly very talented and I can find no fault from the melodies which are technically excellent- there certainly are no 'filler tracks' and each song deserves its place on the album.

The record starts with a traditional instrumental to build the tension and excitement with drum rolls which culminates into a scream of fury and the start of one the best songs on the album 'Blood is the Price of Glory'. A full throttle opener with heavy riffs, a raging chorus and a fast beat. I hope to one day see a gig opened with this song as I'm sure the crowd would go mad for it.
The pace continues with 'Deathbringers from the Sky' and 'Ahti'. Both have catchy choruses - you can tell these guys have probably been influenced by Judas Priest with the Rob Halford esque screams which are pulled off with aplomb.
Track 5 - 'One More Magic Potion' is my favourite song from the album.

Unlike other reviewers I'm not going to go on about the change of vocalist and which one I think is better- the bottom line is that this is a great album, not a single filler track on it! There doesn't seem to be a huge fanbase of viking/epic/folk metal, if you do know about it already, chances are you already know how great this band are, but if you are new to the genre, this would be a decent place to start learning

This is the underrated third full album from Finnish viking metallers Ensiferum. But then you probably know that already. A lot of people were very suspicious of Victory Songs when it first appeared but it has grown to be my favourite from Ensiferum (which isn't to say their other three albums aren't also fantastic). All four albums are distinct from each other, from the stripped down Ensiferum to the symphonic excesses of From Afar, but in my view Victory Songs has the most consistent and coherent sound. Individual tracks may not be as distinctive as some in the other offerings (e.g. Token of Time, Iron etc) but as a body-of-work this is an album with ebbs and flows which takes you on a journey through ancient battlefields.
