USA & Canada Tour

Finnish folk metal superstars KORPIKLAANI have announced a co-headline tour in North America, with long time friends Ensiferum, with support coming from Trollfest.  The tour is set to kick off May 6th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through May 29th in New York, NY.

Additional dates will to be added to the end of April with Trollfest only.

 

KORPIKLAANI are set to release their new album Noita, May 5th in North America via Nuclear Blast. Jan Yrlund, of Darkgrove Design, created the artwork.  Yrlund has created all theKORPIKLAANI artwork in recent years and once again has come up with another masterpiece.

 

Noita was recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording and mixing again. It is also the first KORPIKLAANI album to feature new accordion player Sami PerttulaPerttula’s joining the band has added another dimension in the band’s folk arrangements alongside Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari.
The literal translation of the new release’s title may be misleading with regards to the album themes but Jarkko Aaltonen provided a summary of the storyline: Noita in the traditional Finnish meaning is different than what people associate it with nowadays. “Noita” is a person with wider knowledge and understanding of nature and who also was believed to possess paranormal or unnatural abilities. These people were often also referred to as “Tietäjä”, which translates as someone with wider knowledge and understanding of pretty much everything. The Native American medicine man and all the different types of Shamans of the primitive people are other examples. “Noita” is someone that you turn to when you need help of some kind. Finnish “Noita” had the ability to heal, just like their North American counterparts. They were very respected members of the society. Only later Christianity changed the word to mean something negative since those people were considered rivals by the church. Even in Finland this turned into a Witchhunt (=noitavainot) every now and then. Anyway, most people using Google Translate or similar will find the word “Witch” and will probably get the wrong idea of the meaning, since most will probably connect it with the black sabbaths, devil marks and such, when a way more correct translation would probably be medicine man or Shaman.”

New accordionist Sami Perttula about his first album with the band: “Previously the KORPIKLAANI albums were played with a piano-accordion and now I play with a traditional button-accordion which was more widely used in Finland anyways. In the arrangements you can hear more tonal harmonies and folky accompaniments combined to the power-chords than before. It actually boosts up the uplifting feel of our music.”

 

Violinist Tuomas Rounakari adds: “This album has more violin solos than ever before. Violin is more in the role of a lead-guitar now just as Jonne had originally intended it to be.”

 

And vocalist Jonne Järvelä concludes: “We have finally managed to create the balance between folk and metal in the way I’ve always dreamt it to be. Thanks to Sami’s arrangements and Tuomas’s crazy shredding of the violin.”

 

In March, KORPIKLAANI will be headlining the Paganfest Extended Shows and will additionally play a run of European festival later this year.

Gira por Estados Unidos y Canadá

Korpiklaani, las súper estrellas del folk metal finlandés, han anunciado una gira junto a sus amigos Ensiferum, y con el apoyo de Trollfest. La gira comenzará el 6 de Mayo en Los Ángeles, California y se extenderá hasta el 29 de Mayo en Nueva York.
A fines de abril se añadirán fechas sólo con Trollfest.
Korpiklaani lanzará su nuevo álbum “Noita” el 5 de mayo en Norteamérica mediante Nuclear Blast. Jar Yrlund de Darkgrove Design creó el diseño de la portada. Yrlund ha creado todas las portadas de Korpiklaani durante los últimos años, y una vez más nos ha sorprendido con una obra de arte.
Noita” se grabó en el Estudio Petrax, una vez más con Aksu Hanttu al mando de la producción, grabación y mezclas. Será el primer álbum junto al acordeonista Sami Perttula, quien le ha dado otra dimensión  a los arreglos  folk junto al violinista Tuomas Rounakari.
La traducción literal del título del nuevo álbum puede parecer engañosa en cuanto a la temática del álbum, pero Jarkko Aaltonen entregó un resumen de la historia detrás de “Noita”: El significado tradicional del finés “Noita” es distinto a lo que la gente asocia hoy en día. El “Noita” es una persona con un amplio conocimiento y comprensión de la naturaleza y también se creía que poseía habilidades paranormales o antinaturales. También se refería a éstas personas como “Tietäjä”, que significa exactamente “una persona con un amplio conocimiento y entendimiento de muchísimas cosas”. Los curanderos nativos americanos son prácticamente lo mismo, o en realidad todos los diversos tipos de chamanes de los pueblos primitivos son la misma cosa. “Noita” es alguien a quien acudes cuando necesitas algún tipo de ayuda. Los “Noita” fineses tenían la habilidad de curar al igual que sus colegas norteamericanos. Eran miembros muy respetados en la sociedad. Con el paso del tiempo el cristianismo se encargó de utilizar la palabra con un significado negativo ya que dichas personas eran consideradas rivales de la iglesia. Incluso en Finlandia en ocasiones esto llevó a una “cacería de brujas” (noitavaino). De todas maneras, la mayoría de la gente que usa Google Translate o algo similar encontrará la palabra “Bruja” y probablemente tendrá una idea errónea del significado ya que muchos probablemente lo relacionarán con las misas negras,  marcas malignas y cosas así, siendo que una traducción más atinada sería probablemente “curandero” o “chamán”.
El Nuevo acordeonista, Sami Perttula habló acerca de su primer disco junto a la banda:  “Anteriormente los discos de Korpiklaani tenían un acordeón-piano, y ahora toco un acordeón de botones tradicional, que de todas formas se usaba más en Finlandia. En los arreglos ahora pueden escuchar más armonías  tonales y acompañamientos folclóricos combinados con acordes potentes. En realidad esto incrementa la sensación inspiradora de nuestra música.”

A lo que el violinista Tuomas Rounakari agregó: “Este disco tiene más solos de violín que los anteriores. Ahora el violín cumple más el rol de primera guitarra como Jonne quería desde un principio.”
Finalmente el vocalista Jonne Järvelä concluyó “Finalmente nos las hemos arreglado para crear un balance entre el folk y el metal de la forma que siempre he imaginado, gracias a los arreglos de Sami  y el shredding loco del violín de Tuomas.”
En Marzo Korpiklaani encabezará los shows extendidos del Paganfest y además tocarán en algunos festivales europeos durante los meses siguientes.

Korpiklaani shared Nuclear Blast's post. ... See MoreSee Less

Korpiklaani are happy to finally announce the release of their upcoming 10th studio album entitled »Kulkija« ("Wanderer"), on September 7th, 2018. Its cover was designed by Jan Yrlund (BATTLE BEAST, MANOWAR etc.), who has already created several artworks for previous albums and singles for the band. Founding member Jonne Järvelä - Korpiklaani commented: "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 well 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." Since every album release needs to be celebrated in the right way, KORPIKLAANI are additionally announcing an accompanying Russian release tour, which will lead them through 13 cities in 16 days.
