Finntroll and Ensiferum Heading Up Finnish Metal Tour

Century Media

The Finnish cannot be stopped. The Finnish Metal Tour will return to the U.S. in 2011, and it will feature headline sets by folk metal madrigal makers Finntroll and Ensiferum. Barren Earth and Rotten Sound will serve as the support acts. Regardless of the geographical origins of the bands on the tour, one thing is certain: this tour is full-on folky and metallic. The tour is scheduled to begin on Jan. 31 and to roll through March 4 and metalheads will be certain to rock the ‘folk’ out.

In a statement, Ensiferum bassist Sami Hinkka said, “Greetings from the north our brothers and sisters of the new continent! The time has come to unite forces with our fellow countrymen and raid your cities with unforeseen power. The amount of alcohol consumption on this tour is going to be horrifying, so don’t forget to bring your drinking horn! Grab your swords and hold them high with pride and join the ultimate metal event of 2011. Folk on!”

Tickets are on sale now, so get ’em while you can.
