Korpiklaani - Reveal New Album Tracklist And Cover


Finnish traditional folk metal band Korpiklaani have issued further details on their upcoming 8th studio album Manala that will be released via Nuclear Blast on August 3rd. The cover artwork was created by Finnish artist Jan Yrlund of darkgrove.net and can be seen below.

Korpiklaani's vocalist Jonne Järvelä stated: "On the album cover, our band mascot... Vaari represents Väinämöinen, who is one of the main characters in the Finnish national epic Kalevala. As most of the lyrics on Manala are based on the Kalevala, Jan Yrlund decided to draw his inspiration for the cover artwork from the beautiful but yet brutal depiction of the underworld in Finnish mythology."

The limited digipak edition of Manala will come with a bonus CD, including the whole album with English lyrics.

Waiting for this band to finally show signs of evolving took longer than waiting for Togepi to hatch from its egg and for it to evolve into Togetic.

Reminds me of Amon Amarth''s crappy artwork. Probably due to the colouring used.

Yep, definitely an Amon Amarth vibe to this.

And yes Rod, we should totally make it a meme

as far as i know Korven Kuningas didn"t have one either, but the follow up balanced that out....
anyways, i wonder how they could fill 2 discs that fast, and it will take longer to find the 3 or 4 good songs of the album that way

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:

Disc 2 appears to be the English versions of disc 1. Dunno why there's English versions of the English songs though. I, personally, am going to find all the good folk metal songs by buying Dalriada's new album when it comes out instead of this.
