Ensiferum (Latin ēnsiferum (neuter adjective) meaning "sword bearer") is a folk metal band from Helsinki, Finland. In 1995 Markus Toivonen played guitar with some friends in a band called ”Dark Reflections”, which played mainly covers of certain heavy metal bands including Megadeth, Pantera and many others. Later on, Markus felt that the band in which he was playing offered him very little inspiration and wanted to play something different. Markus was hugely inspired by folk music and also found himself fascinated with melodic death metal bands like Amorphis and Dark Tranquillity.

Barren of good thoughts
Scorched By grudge and grief
Doomed to linger on

Hide your weapons, veil your hate, seek your foes unguarded and slay
Behead them !
- LyricsToo many times has moon travelled across the sky,
Since our fathers sailed out for glory and honour,
It's time to fulfil the vow once given,
Forge your plows to swords, send the word,
Raise an army countless as stars in the sky.
- LyricsMany men have crossed my way
Promising peace or my soul to save
But I already heard you
I have seen what they made with their freedom
But I, I have no need for your god
