KORPIKLAANI’s twelfth studio album, Rankarumpu, is once again full of tasty folk metal and its different flavors, but it also offers new spices. One of the most wonderful features of Rankarumpu is related to the folk instruments. This time new permanent member Olli Vänskä’s violin and Sami Perttula’s accordion may surprise even die-hard fans.
Olli Vänskä commented: “I actually composed ‘Saunaan’ already months before I even knew I would be playing for Korpiklaani. I was working on an upbeat folk metal song and less surprisingly KK – Kings of Folk Metal – was definitely one of the influences.
Then, one thought led to another and suddenly I found myself actually playing for Korpiklaani and we were talking about material for an upcoming album. One night during a festival van ride I played a couple of demo tracks for the guys and Jonne was immediately giving me thumbs up. We worked with the arrangement a little bit and the end result is a pretty pretty good song!”
