Ensiferum just released the video for the title track on the new album “From Afar”. It’s the first song I’ve heard off the new album and it sounds pretty good.
What struck me right off the bat was the use of a full live orchestra, the brass hits at the beginning of the song are excellently done and bring a new atmosphere to Ensiferum, who were beginning to get a little stale.
The video has fairly high production values but I have no fucking idea what’s going. The chick with the dreads is cute as a button though, she looks like she’s from Whoville. The camera also shakes whenever Petri looks into it while he’s singing, I understand it’s supposed to give of a powerful vibe. But if you’ve ever seen the man in person, he’s kinda frail/anorexic looking. Check out the video below.
