You have to see Turisas with your own eyes to really understand what they are all about; black metal war/corpse paint mixed with mythology lyrics, mixed with power metal choruses, mixed with folk music (violin and accordian) mixed with a sensational stage show. I had the chance to see them last year on Paganfest in a little club and they still made us feel like we were on the plains of Finland fighting for our honor. Sometimes it's a little cheesy and they are not going to blow you away with their technical guitar skill, although the violin solos are incredible. Maybe you are feeling a little depressed and need a break from the soul crushing death metal you usually listen too; if so, listen to Turisas!
