Official press release:

“Epic” is a descriptive term bandied about a lot these days, but nowhere can it be used more fittingly than in describing the upcoming release from Finland’s Whispered! The masters of ‘Samurai Metal’ are back with third album Metsutan – Songs of the Void, which is set for release on May 20th through Redhouse FMP/Inverse Records.
