* {{Istanbul}}: ''Miklagard Overture'' is an ode to medieval Constantinople's splendor, from the viewpoint of arriving recruits for the Varangian Guard.
--> Konstantinopolis
--> Ten gates to eternity
--> Seen all for centuries
--> Your inconquerable walls
--> Your temples and your halls
--> See all, hear all, know it all

* ChildhoodFriends: Wickström and Nygård. They were probably young teenagers when they first met; Nygård's older brother was dating Wickström's older sister at the time. The band formed in 1997, when they would have been fourteen or fifteen, so it's reasonable to assume they met somewhere between 1995 and 1997.

Turisas is a battle/folk/viking metal band from Hämeenlinna, Finland, formed in 1997. Their name comes from Iku-Turso, an ancient god of war in the Finnish mythology. Their debut album ''Battle Metal'' pretty much named and kick-started an entire subgenre of Music/HeavyMetal.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_luv4sfhPMl1r65b6ao1_500.jpg Yes, that is Warlord]]. [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_luv4sfhPMl1r65b6ao2_500.jpg Yes, he has a crew-cut (presumably from army service) and yes, his entire upper body is covered in black paint and yes he is wearing bell-bottom jeans]]. These were probably around 2001 or 2002, considering the length of Warlord's hair (it was roughly shoulder-length by the time 'Battle Metal' rolled around in 2004).
