Ensiferum – Smoking Ruins


In the battlefield fight, don’t run. 

With their heroic lyrics, tasteful incorporation of folk instruments and driving rock rhythms, Ensiferum is easy to love as a Pagan Metal band. They are a deliciously mixed cocktail – the kind that is both strong and sweet – you would drink them and then take on the entire bar in battle: declaring the glory of your ancestors as you smash a bottle over the heads of many.

This song is the story of a young boy who fled home full of pride in his heart, but now lives in exile because of his lacking bravery in battle. Because of his shame he calls to the God of Thunder to strike him down wear he stands. Enjoy.
