FlightOfIcarus interviews Sami Hinkka, bassist and backup vocalist for Finnish folk metal band Ensiferum. This took place at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland during a tour with Septicflesh and Arsis. Sami was a chill dude to talk to and was even willing to change locations when the opener started playing. Topics covered include touring schedule, backstage antics, the next legendary figures of the metal scene, his side job as a substitute Kindergarten teacher, the changing music business, the vast variability of what it means to be “folk metal,” and much more.
