This year’s Metalcamp chat was kicked off by ELUVEITIE and WISDOM and next week KORPIKLAANI will continue this MC tradition. Tuesday, June 26 starting 20.00 h CET singer Jonne will be answering your questions in the CHAT section on the official Metalcamp homepage. Just sign in and chat with the bands during the announced times!
If you think that there are no reasons to celebrate within the dark metal-spheres, the heavy drinking forest inhabitants of KORPIKLAANI will disabuse you! This hilarious sextet delights with rapid metal combined with a lot of Humppa and other elements of typical Finnish folk music. Sharp guitar-sounds and a wide-ranged diversity of traditional instruments create a very special relaxed and hearty atmosphere for partying, so you just forget the run of time. KORPIKLAANI will mix a high-percentage folk-cocktail at your headbanger’s holidays 2012, which will definitely strike stronger than „Vodka“ or „Tequila“!
Their new album „Manala“ will be out just in time for METALCAMP, release date August 3rd. Watch two lyric videos here, one new song sung in Finnish and English:
