I haven't bothered listening to Turisas much yet.... If this song is anything like their other work, I don't think I'll bother at all.

First I was like thats strange and now I really dont know what to say...Well I am a bit confused. I hope this is theirs worst track on the new album. If the rest of the album is same, I wont buy theirs cd. I did buy the last on and loved it. I was hoping this to be something like "The March of the Varangian Guard", but its nothing near...
26.06.2013 - 19:02
OMG what was that ... complete garbage
26.06.2013 - 20:02

Pretty boring song, worst thing the band's done so far. And that track No Good Story Ever Starts With Drinking Tea made me laugh.

WTF was that? this is shit

The song is underwhelming but still decently enjoyable. The new sound is definitely not the direction I wish they would've taken but the song is still catchy and mostly aesthetic. I hope some of the other tracks have a little more balls to them though.

hahaha yeah that's a great title, I just imagine high class british people from the Victorian era drinking tea with top hats when I read that.
pewpew.. gotcha

Really liked the song. Though I think their second album is killer, I wouldn't want every successor to sound like it anyways.

To all of you haters:Seriously guys, The album is titled Turisas2013....!!!TURISASTWOTHOUSANDTHIRTEEN!! and the artwork is like some underground teenage punk wannabes from the 80's...What the fuck did you expect?
26.06.2013 - 23:44
What the fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkk
27.06.2013 - 01:24
Aside from the fact the song sucks, my main problem is it doesnt sound at all like Turisas. It sounds like very bland/uninspired power metal track.
27.06.2013 - 03:02
Please tell me the rest of this will be better. They haven't made many songs that stand out in my mind, but this one stands out... in a bad way.
27.06.2013 - 07:49
Eh it's ok. Starts awkwardly and a bit off putting. As the track goes along it seems to straighten out. Weird song though.

^ exactly what I was thinking

And it didn't exactly have to have loads of folky elements to be good, it's just stripped down, the most stripped down i've ever heard the band and not in a good way. Feels like i've heard this song a million times before. I think they need to take a step forward by taking a step backwards, Battle Metal and Varangian Way were both fantastic albums. I hope this will be the worst track but bearing in mind it's the first song that doesn't seem too promising!

Looks like I'm one of the few, but I quite enjoyed the song. It's miles away from their recent releases in terms of sound and style, but still enjoyable for me.

Caught a bit of these guys live at Metalfest Poland. Not really my thing. And now, every time I see the band name, I think penises, after seeing them walk butt naked into the lake at the festival.

At least they are having a go at something different. I actually quite like it. Admittedly it is not what I was expecting, far more rock than metal and defiantly not power metal.

If the album is going to be diverse, then it will be interesting to see what else comes out before I childishly write it off.

After a few more listens, i dont find it as offensive as I first did. Surely, theres bound to be a few good tracks on "2013", right? Right?

I Want to get into this since I've always liked Turisas so much with the first two albums. It seems like they're going from folk metal to "Mad Max Road Warrior metal". It's hard to adjust as a listener, it's like they're almost a whole new band. I'll always love the first two albums though.
