Chaoszine met up with the band’s bassist Sami Hinkka before the streaming show and discussed about the summer of Ensiferum regarding getting back to the stage playing, what is up next for Hinkka’s other band Metal De Facto and what kind of plans he has regarding his ssSHhh soloproject.

During the interview Hinkka revealed that Ensiferum has commenced the writing process for the follow-up of “Thalassic”. Hinkka said he is very pleased for the material so far and they already have almost album’s worth of raw ideas for the next album:

“I am happy to the position we are now with the new songs. We still need to make two or three more songs to sort of have the raw structure of the upcoming album. It is already in very good position.”
