Lucem Fero recently published an interview with TURISAS vocalist Mathias "Warlord" Nygård, conducted in September by Welsh interviewer Anthony Morgan. Topics of discussion included TURISAS' DVD, "A Finnish Summer With Turisas", its accompanying documentary, "Battle Metal"'s re-recording, and plans for a follow up to 2007's "The Varangian Way". Several excerpts from the interview follow below. On plans for a follow-up to "The Varangian Way": "I think it's going to be awhile before we issue our third album. (laughs) At the moment, we'll be touring for quite some time. Right now, our plans are to finish this touring cycle alongside DRAGONFORCE by the summer of 2009. Following that, we'll take a break to start focusing upon writing new songs, and subsequently entering production. From mid-2009 until the end of 2009, there'll likely be a gap. We won't tour much, but will focus upon writing new tracks, and cutting our third album." On whether the follow-up won't surface until 2010: "Yeah, that sounds realistic." I just want them to headline the US and I'll be happy. I can wait till 2010 to be honest. I'm not in any hurry for another album.
