TURISAS Interviewed By U.K.'s 'The Metalheadz' (Video)

"The Metalheadz" presenter Sian Parry conducted an interview with Finnish "battle metal" warriors TURISAS at the Hammerfest, which took place March 18-19, 2011 in Prestatyn, North Wales. You can now watch the chat below.

"Stand Up And Fight", the third album from TURISAS, entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 5. The CD was released in North America on March 8 via Century Media Records. It was made available in the following formats:

* Limited mediabook with bonus CD (two additional tracks, special acoustic live performance as CD enhancement)
* CD
* Gatefold LP plus the entire album on CD
* Digital download

TURISAS filmed a video for the title track of its new album, "Stand Up And Fight", on February 7 in the California desert with director Iain Sclater. Influenced by the film "Mad Max" and the band’s own image, the clip is sure to provide a thrilling new look at TURISAS in the band's first-ever U.S.-shot music video.

"'Stand Up And Fight' is a loose continuation of the story from 'The Varangian Way', and picks up where the previous one left us, in Constantinople," explains mainman Mathias Nygård. "However, it is not a sequel as such. In general, the songs are much more universal and deal with topics that can be placed just as tightly into the modern world as in the 11th century Byzantine Empire. 'Stand Up And Fight' has much more to offer the contemporary listener."
