Let’s start with a metaphor: imagine that wonderful moment that you are walking familiar paths in the deep woods. The good spirits of the majestic forest penetrate your innermost being and free you from the dreary world somewhere far away. Then suddenly you blink and look in wonder: have these ancient stumps or that cluster of mossy stones always been there?

Exactly such vibes evoke when you enter the fascinating world of the new studio album by Finnish Folk Metal Superstars Korpiklaani. Superstars? Well, what else can you say about these extraordinary fellows who have offered us a lot of unforgettable songs – oh, shall we have some vodka? – and so much other stuff.

The vivacious ensemble, founded by a shaman at heart Jonne Järvelä (vocals/guitar) in 2003, has been able to create an effortlessly recognizable style over the past two decades – actually a rare occurrence in the world of heavier music of the 21st century.

This week Dave Griffiths sat down to talk to the band about the album. You can take a listen to the interview right here:
