Folk metal band from Helsinki, Finland.
Ensiferum's Black/Death/Folk Metal hybrid was first born in 1995 when Markus Toivonen (guitar), Sauli Savolainen (bass) and Kimmo Miettinen (drums) got together to form an innovative band. The following year, Jari Mäenpää joined as a vocalist (and second guitarist) and the first self-titled demo was released.
Before releasing their second demo tape in 1999, Jukka-Pekka Miettinen replaced Sauli Savolainen on bass and ex-Arthemesia drummer Oliver Fokin swapped positions with Kimmo Miettinen. The band continued playing and recorded a third demo, "Hero in a Dream", which was noticed by underground (and non) magazines which allowed the band to gain popularity and sign a deal with Spinefarm Records.
Finally, Meiju Enho joined as keyboard player for the band and they were now able to record their epic, self-titled debut "Ensiferum" in 2001.

Aenimus is a progressive, extreme metal band formed in CA. The band released their debut album, Transcend Reality in 2013, engineered by Nick Botelho of NB Recording. Aenimus takes elements from the best in extreme and progressive metal and seamlessly blends them together into one cohesive crushing debut album. Having been compared to the likes of Whitechapel, Veil of Maya, All Shall Perish, Born of Osiris and more, the 5 piece metal juggernaut from the Bay Area in Northern California has incorporated all of their collective influences and have managed to create an album that is so much more than the sum of its parts.
Aenimus just wrapped up their sophomore album to be titled 'Dreamcatcher' released February 22, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records.
