    Dear readers / viewers ,

 Personally decided to change this informing blog , to e-zine . This decision come apart that I have not enough time to get informed for everything  so I decided to collect every month all the monthly material and to release it as a zine. The material will include news , interviews , reviews and many more to be announced.
I would like to thank you about all this support for those months .
All the best,

Now the European summer festival season is finally wrapped up, and with extensive Heidenfest and headline touring looming for the autumn, we come to the start of a new chapter in TURISAS’ history.
TURISAS are delighted to announce that JUKKA-PEKKA MIETTINEN (ex- ARTHEMESIA, ENSIFERUM) will be joining the band on bass for forthcoming shows, and ROBERT ENGSTRAND (ex-KOTIPELTO, THE FLOWER KINGS) will be coming into a completely new role in the band – as keyboard player.

STUDIOBLOG: Drums, Part 1

So I suppose it’s time to check in here and do the honors of writing the first post! We’re about to start day 2, and so far the sessions going very well. Even though it did take about 3 hours to get the bassdrum sound just right for Tommy. However, as of now the drums sound incredible, and we are done with the first three tracks. There’s Red Bull and Coffee for breakfast, and once Tommy’s properly awake we should be ready to kick some more ass today.
For those interested: This time I’m recording on a Bubinga drumkit Tama has generously provided, with a very basic setup including 22″x20″ Kickdrum, 10″x08″ & 12″x09″ Toms, a 16″x16″ Floortom and a 13″x6.0″ Snaredrum. Cymbals are of course Zildjians (Mainly A Custom, but also my Favourite 21″ K Custom Crashride and 13″ K Custom secondary hats), and I’m beating the s**t out of everything with the best drumsticks in the world made by Vic Firth, breaking Drumheads made by Evans (G2 Clear on toms, Emad2 Clear on kickdrum, and Power Center on snare).

Enough talking for now though, after all we’re here to record an album!
- Merlin


    As Eluveitie says , new album announced and "Helvetios" is coming in 2012 . September 1st, Merlin has begun drum tracking for our new Album titled HELVETIOS at the Newsound studios in Pfäffikon, Switzerland. We are again working with Tommy Vetterli (Coroner, Ex-Kreator) who will record drums, guitars and vocals and will also be producing and mixing the record. Most folk instruments and also vocals will be recorded by Anna Murphy & Marco Jencarelli at the Soundfarm studios in Lucerne.
