Ensiferum interview (05/2013)
|Conducted by:||D.T. Metal (in person)|
Ensiferum, who headlined the recent Paganfest here in North America, had their first appearance in Denver after an almost five year hiatus. Before the show we had a nice little chat with bassist Sami Hinkka but unfortunately the location we selected was not available and we ended up staying inside the venue right after doors opened. My apologies for the background noise.
In addition, you can find the review of their Denver performance right here.
