WORDS: Dean Martin

Finnish folk-metallers ENSIFERUM are taking on Europe in April and have just announced FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE will be their special guests.

Having both played Bloodstock 2015, it’s no surprise that these two bands are back at it again, with more determination than ever been. With regards to the European tour, ENSIFERUM have said: “Greetings from Ensiferum camp! One Man Army -world tour has already visited many cities but there is still lot more to come. We shall not rest before every metalhead has partied with us like there is no tomorrow! Now we are very proud to announce European tour in April 2016 with brilliant lineup! More info later, so please be patient, we promise that it will be worth it. Folk on!
