Commented Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari”Lempo is a fiery God of fertility and the song is about the spells designated to Lempo in order to guarantee a success in one’s personal love life. The Finnish mythology is very unique in its approach to sexuality. We do not have spells to improve procreation like most of the cultures do. But the spells to gain more luck in love life or to increase ones stamina are numerous for both men and women. Lempo is also closely related to fire and one could see the hair of Lempo flashing in the red and yellow flames of fire. The song is a prime example of the new KORPIKLAANI sound with a lead guitar like violin solo and more prominent folk arrangements. It takes a step towards progressive rock balancing the folk and metal in a way Jonne has always dreamed it to be.”

»Noita« was recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording and mixing again. It will also be the first KORPIKLAANI-album to feature the new accordion player Sami Perttula, who has been playing a very active role in the folk arrangements along with Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari and his shredding Fiddle solos.

This month KORPIKLAANI will be headlining the Paganfest Extended Shows and will additionally play a run of European festivals later this year.
