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.
