KORPIKLAANI - Release Single And Music Video For The Song "Niemi"!

KORPIKLAANI - Release Single And Music Video! - 2021-01-08

2021-01-08 - With only 4 weeks remaining until the release of their 11th studio album Jylhä, Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are happy to present another new song to their fans. Niemi is a fast paced and catchy neckbreaker which is reminiscent of the band’s heavier past, and it will be accompanied by a good old fashioned performance video that showcases KORPIKLAANI at what they do best.

This is what frontman Jonne has to say about Niemi :
"Niemi was one of the first songs for this album. I had a feeling after 'Kulkija', that a next album could be the fastest and hardest ever in Korpiklaani's history. I looked at my Flying V, picked it up and here we are!"

The meaning of Niemi ("The Cape"):
"Lake Bodom 1960, “Bloody Pentecost”. Four youngsters, Irmeli Björklund, Anja Mäki, Seppo Boisman, and Nils Gustafsson were the target of a murderer on their camping trip. The sole survivor was Nils Gustafsson, who was badly injured. The summery triple murder on the lake side shocked the whole of Finland. In the story, the narrator is on a meadow near the lake spending a summer morning, when the surroundings come alive and the narrator hears the call “Come to the end of the cape, terrible things have happened”. Everyone who heard the call quickly heads towards the murder cape. The story is carried by stagnant time and the momentary nature portraits. The murders of Lake Bodom remain unsolved."

Director's Word:
"In this video I just wanted to capture the band's insane energy on stage. So here's Korpiklaani with cold & fire, smoke & leather!" (Markku Kirves)
