    Will the cover song Turisas play live "Rasputin" ever make it onto a CD? Any news on whether it'll even be recorded at all?

    It would also be nice to have a better quality recording of Those were the Days done.

    aye, i'll second that, would be fucking ace to have a good recording of both.
    maybe it would be set as a bonus track for the new CD?
    both songs seem to have such an intence reactions for the fans it would be daft to just leave it as a gig thing only.

    Then again, it could work the other way as being one of those cult things that can only be experienced in concert. I'm really not fussed either way.

    Do the band ever play Those Were The Days live?

    <3'ed Those Were the Days live, such a good cover :) Can't wait to see what else Turisas can come up with, but a recording (even if live) would be nice of Rasputin.

    I was wondering whether we'll get Turisas' Rasputin cover on the new album or as an extra on a single or something..

    ...are we getting it? / Do you think we'll get it?

    i personally think it would be great as a bonus on limeted editions of the new album or maybe put on a single... its so cool live, and is also an awesome song (when metalised)...

    so yeah, discuss!:loco:

    As much as it would be cool to have a proper recorded version, I think they should stick to only playing it live.

    It's one of those things that would be good either way, but I'm more in favor of it being only performed live. Which would make it another good reason to see Turisas live, other than the fact they are fucking brilliant.

    What they should do, imo, is record it when they do it live, and then one of three things:

    *Make it available to download on Myspace.com
    *Make it a b-side to a single release
    *Or add it on to an album, maybe make a special edition along with maybe another couple of live tracks or some b-sides.

    I don't see why anyone would be against this being recorded properly to be honest. I mean it does show the much missed side of turisas that doesn&#8217;t come across unless you see them smacking each other with branches on stage. Of course I&#8217;m referring to the genius tongue in cheer humour, not possibly masochistic tendencies.
    HA!
    It&#8217;s a really amusing cover imo and would be a fantastic thing to release as either a b-side or even better, a very VERY limited edition so that only the fair few loyal fans could acquire it.
    good plan, good plan....

    You luff those suspect tendancies, don't deny it.

    I'm not sure that the homour of the band's live covers would be apparent if it was a studio recording - maybe they should record the songs straight from the mixing desk when they play it live and just pick the best recording for a B-side :zombie:

    Cover art by Steve Brown



    Finland's battle metallers Turisas will be swapping their blood soaked
    furs and axes for the glitter & glitz of the 70's disco era with the
    release of their debut single 'Rasputin' on 24th September.



    On the release of their interpretation of the classic disco hit
    originally by Boney M, Warlord Nygard comments "We've been begged to
    record Rasputin pretty much since we first played it live a couple of
    years back. It's amazing how popular this cover version of ours have
    become at our gigs during the last year and it really makes us feel
    like we must have done something right here looking at big crowds
    going totally mental over a 70's disco hit! I remember getting the
    idea for this cover years back - in 2001 I think. I was on a ferry
    trip between Finland and Sweden and there was this cover band
    performing 70's disco hits. The minute they blasted 'Rasputin' I knew,
    that at some point, we would need to do it in some form or another. It
    was just obvious that it would work amazingly well given a slightly
    more modern and heavier touch-up. Personally I've always preferred
    these old 70's disco bands".

    The band were busy filming the video for 'Rasputin' in Hämeenlinna,
    Finland with director Vesa-Matti Vainio(Vasarafilms) earlier this week
    and Warlord reported back "We had a tough day yesterday shooting the
    video for 'Rasputin' and now my whole body is aching. The setting for
    the video is really weird but cool! Think Saturday Night Fever meets
    Turisas with a worn out East-European twist... Mirror balls, high
    heels, high waists, cocktails, hotpants vs. fur, blood, dirt and
    sweat. Quite a combo!". A link to the video will be made available
    very soon




    The disco Vikings will be headlining at the following venues in September:

    15/09/07 Nottingham – Rock City


    16/09/07 Manchester Academy 3


    17/09/07 Glasgow Cathouse


    18/09/07 Newcastle Academy


    19/09/07 London Islington Academy


    20/09/07 Birmingham Academy 2


    21/09/07 Bristol Academy


    23/09/07 Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms

    This is awesome! Can't wait for the single, even as I don't buy a lot of singles anyhow.
    And I have to agree with Turbo about the cover art, hilarious.
