Did you miss Paganfest, aka the best tour of 2008? Fret not, for Turisas, the highlight of the bill, are releasing a DVD that brings you back… but better. A Finnish Summer With Turisas chronicles not the band’s first tour of North America but their Summer 2008 jaunt of their native Finland, in which legions of adoring fans foisted their beer steins in the air and partied down with rowdy folk metal anthems nightly. If only we shoudl be so lucky.
Fortunately for you, you get a new video for “Battle Metal 2008” right now; check it out below, then buy the DVD when it comes out in North America on November 25th (and in other territories just prior — dates after the jump.)
