Ensiferum are scheduled to record sixth studio album this fall. In the midst of bringing their melodic folk-infused attack to stages worldwide, the band has been crafting songs for their sixth studio album (their Metal Blade Records debut), and the writing process is nearing completion. They plan to record the new album in September and October of this year with producer Anssi Kippo at Astia Studio in Finland. The release date is tentatively scheduled for early 2015.

Bassist Sami Hinkka has offered the following update:
Hi folks! They say that time flies when you are having a good time and we couldn’t agree more. We have been quite busy touring around the world since our previous album came out few years ago. Between tours we have worked hard with new songs and now we are very proud to announce that Ensiferum will hit studio again right after summer festival season.

On the new album we will take everything to eleven, it’s going to be fast, furious, epic and full of surprises but of course there will be classic Ensiferum elements included.
