TURISAS Confirmed For Finland's RUISROCK Festival

Finnish folk metallers TURISAS have been confirmed for the Ruisrock festival, set to take place July 6-8 in Turku, Finland.

Professionally filmed video footage of TURISAS performing at the Download festival on June 9 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, England has been posted at YouTube.

Since its release, TURISAS' latest album, "The Varangian Way", has reached No. 11 in the U.K. rock chart and entered the Finnish album chart at No. 17.

Central to "The Varangian Way" is the group's concept of a journey through the East-European river route through the lands of modern day East Europe. The Northmen who traveled this path in the 9th-11th centuries were called Varangians. Key to the album's concept is a search for self and identity, both of which are explored by the protagonist in "The Varangian Way"'s eight songs. Truly a display of the band's dedication to the conceptual elements of the album, TURISAS made sure to include cultural influences from the lands the Varangians would have traveled through.
