Korpiklaani to release "Kulkija" in September

Posted by AP on 07/04/18

Finnish folk metal tribe Korpiklaani has set September 07th as the official release date for their tenth studio album, which they have christened as “Kulkija” (in English: wanderer). While more details about the record are still pending, you can view the artwork here. Frontman Jonne Järvelä meanwhile commented on it:

We’ve never been as satisfied with a final result as we are with “Kulkija”. We tried to keep it very natural, and that’s what you’ll soon be able to hear clearly. Like the wanderer, this album is a journey, one that makes you feel good. Stay tuned!

Accordionist Sami Perttula added:

“Kulkija” isn’t just a collection of songs, it’s a “real” album with a unique atmosphere guiding the listeners through a long journey. All songs were all prepared in advance and nothing needed to be arranged in the studio. Tuomas [fiddle] & I had lots of space to develop and play the folk arrangements.

“Kulkija” follows the band’s excellent 2015 album, “Noita”, which we reviewed here.
