Ensiferum brought their battle-metal to Summit Music Hall for a night Denver won’t forget.
The Norwegian band, Trollfest, kicked off the night with their true Norwegian Balkan metal. After their second song they asked if the audience would like to hear some Britney Spears, and they weren’t kidding. The next song they played was a metal version of her song, Toxic.Â Trollfest is a seven-piece band that includes an accordion and a saxophone in addition to the usual guitars and drums and has put out seven albums since their formation in 2003.
Folk metal Korpiklaani return to the Summit to play for a room full of excited fans exactly one year to the day since their last show here, and they did not disappoint by playing a lot of new songs and finishing up the set with everyone’s favorites like Vodka and Pellonpekko. They are a Finnish band whose name means forrest clan and has a very unique sound that utilizes an accordion and a fiddle in their music. They’ve been around since 1993, but if you look for them past 2002 you won’t find them since they were known as Shaman before that.
Ensiferum headlined this amazing night of folk metal and really got the already pumped up crowd going.Â They came out and put on a very entertaining show with songs off their new 2015 release, One Man Army. Ensiferum is a five piece band whose name means sword bearer in Latin, which is a fitting name for their heavy and very melodic battle metal.
