Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani are happy to finally announce the release of their upcoming 10th studio album entitled Kulkija (“Wanderer”), on September 7th 2018 through Nuclear Blast. Its cover (above) was designed by Jan Yrlund (Battle Beast, Manowar etc.) who has already created several artworks for some of the band’s previous albums and singles.
Founding member Jonne Järvelä 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 clearly be able to hear. 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.”
Stay tuned for more information on Kulkija shortly…
