Turisas - UK & Ireland Tour Support By Chthonic, Kiuas

Finnish battle metallers Turisas just announced that Taiwanese melodic black metallers Chthonic and Finnish power metallers Kiuas are filling the support slots on their upcoming UK & Ireland Tour, taking off by the end of October to mid-November.

On November 7th (Belfast) and 8th (Dublin), instead of Chthonic and Kiuas, Canadian musician Devin Townsend will join as co-headliner.

Violinist Olli Vänskä says: "We're glad to be able to announce what we feel is a really strong support package for the UK shows - both bands have been to the UK before but probably haven't yet had the exposure they deserve - we'll try to change that! Make sure you get down to the shows early to experience something a little bit different!"

Fat & Sassy!
If they came to the states with Chthonic, I'd sure be one happy dude. :3 I have yet to see Turisas perform live (and I've heard they are awesome live).

If this isn't convincing enough, I don't know what is!

They need to do a tour here in the states. I just recently went to a bar in Boston, USA where there was a blind man playing guitar. After a while I noticed that they were Turisas tunes. Great old man. We sat there and talked all night.
