Unsung Heroes by Ensiferum
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Spinefarm Records US
These persistent if not sonically distinctive folk-metal Finns sure get around: The guitarist/vocalist doubles on dulcimer and bouzouki; the lady organist/pianist is also credited with "cooking"; and album notes list more than a dozen outside helper-outers, on everything from "nyckelharpa" to "flirtatious screams, wobbly & farts." The music's not as funny. But from sad biergarten croon-alongs to swashbuckling swordfight odes to damsel-in-distress goth ballads, from the almost countrified "Burning Leaves" to a Henry Rollins/Andrew W.K.-type pep talk in the long closing track, Ensiferum get by.
