Ensiferum Announce New Album, Stream First Single
Ensiferum have announced that their new album will be called Thalassic, which I’ve just learned is a word that means “of, relating to, or situated or developed about inland seas,” and not how someone with a lisp might say “classic.”

Meanwhile, the band has also released the first single from the album, which is called “Rum, Women, Victory.” Musically, it sounds like an Ensiferum song; lyrically, I’m having a hard time figuring out what it’s about. Obscure maritime laws, perhaps? I dunno, see if you can figure it out:
Thalassic will be released July 10 by Metal Blade. Pre-order it here.
