3 years since the release of their last album, Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI offer their 10th studio release entitled ‘Kulkija’ (“Wanderer”).
Featuring 14 tracks, ‘Kulkija’ is their longest release, but also their best sounding one to date: The band kept ‘Kulkija’ as natural sounding as possible. “That’s what you can clearly hear. It’s closer to how we sound on stage, and we’ll be able to play all the new songs live, that’s for sure,” explains vocalist Jonne. For tracking, the band members mostly used their current tour rig. And the result was definitely worth the wait. From the first to the last tone, a unique atmosphere guides the listener through a long journey
Standout tracks include first single 'Kotikonnut' (‘Homestead’), 'Henkselipoika' (‘A Boy In Suspenders’) which is already part of their live set,and the beautiful acoustic ballad ‘Harmaja’ (‘The Grey’).
‘Kulkija’ was recorded at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna, Finland with producer/mixing engineer Janne Saksa while the incredible detailed cover artwork was designed by Jan Yrlund (BATTLEBEAST, MANOWAR), who has been working with the band since their third album. Tour Dates: Full UK tour early 2019. Key tracks: ‘Kotikonnut’, ‘Harmaja’, ‘Henkselipoika’’.
