ENSIFERUM: Photos From 'Twilight Tavern' Video Shoot, Interview With Director Available

Finnish folk metallers ENSIFERUM recently filmed a video for the song "Twilight Tavern" with director Denis Goria.

Goria is a popular French photographer whose latest works include PAIN's "Monkey Business" video, the artwork for HYPOCRISY's most recent album, NIGHTWISH's "Made in Hong Kong" booklet, as well as promo shoots and video trailers for AMORPHIS.

Regarding his work on the "Twilight Tavern" clip, Denis tells Music-Photocalypse.net, "First of all, it's important to mention that I'm not a movie/video director. I'm a photographer.

"I met ENSIFERUM earlier this summer at Jurassic Rock festival in Finland. The manager of the band asked me to join them, as we already had different collaborations earlier. After a few beers and sauna, the band and I established a friendly relation, which is always good for a possible common work in the future."

Check out photos from the video shoot at Music-Photocalypse.net.

The CD landed at position No. 44 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
