Turisas storms up British Rock Chart

on 2011-03-10

The battle metal band from Hämeenlinna, a bucolic castle town an hour’s drive north of Helsinki, shot to number four on the British Top 40 Rock Albums chart, leaving behind luminaries like Muse and Paramore.

The band is currently on the Creatures from the Black Abyss tour with Cradle of Filth, Nachtmystium and Daniel Lioneye. The tour started in February and will conclude this week, after which Turisas heads to the UK for a brief tour celebrating the release of Stand Up and Fight. And then it’s on to Europe to support Die Apokalyptischen Reiter.

There’s no rest for the wicked vikings.
