KORPIKLAANI - “Manala“ OUT NOW + first ... - 2012-08-03

2012-08-03 - Today, the 8th studio album by Finnish traditional folk metal pioneers KORPIKLAANI hits stores! The record, that is based on the Finnish national epic “Kalevala” in large parts, is entitled “Manala” (“Underworld”) and can be purchased in a limited 2CD-digipak-edition, including the regular Finnish album and a bonus CD with the entire album in English language. The journalists who’ve already been on a voyage of discovery through the mystical realms of KORPIKLAANI’s “Manala” are invariably enthralled:


“The true lords of the dance make the underworld shake with metallic thunder. Brilliant!" (SUE MAGAZINE / FIN)

"Korpiklaani did it again... but slightly different! An amazing blend of ethnic abundance and enigmatic spiritualism; that's what 'Manala' stands for. Drink & think!“ (ROCK TRIBUNE / NL)

“A heady dose of folky fun and boozy anthems!“ (TERRORIZER / UK)

"Catchy, powerful and very well performed!” (ROCK HARD / F)

“Unbeatable high-class folk metal!” (SONIC SEDUCER / D)

“The true kings of humppa metal!” (LEGACY / D)

“Loads of atmosphere, inspiration, instrumental mastership and love of their native country!” (HEAVY / D)


So what are you waiting for? Get your head torches out and set forth for the underworld!
