Sabaton

Sabaton

When ‘Heroes’ was released to critical acclaim earlier this year, it was obvious that Sabaton’s inevitable UK tour would be a mighty success. With arguably their best material since 2005’s ‘Primo Victoria’, it came as no surprise that Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms sold out months before Sabaton’s return to our shores.

PaganFest North America V Calgary, Alberta, May 7th, 2014

June 14th, 2014

PAGANFEST NORTH AMERICA V

paganfestposter

Korpiklaani, Turisas, Chthonic, Varg, Winterhymn

The Republik. Calgary, Alberta  2014

It was painful to go  inside on the first sunny day in a week!  As I waited in line enjoying the last few warm rays of sunset I watched the faithful.  Many people were dressed up and faces painted. Countless folk/pagan/Viking shirts made me think this is one of the strongest sub genres right now. Doors open an hour behind schedule which for once didn’t bother me as it was fine to soak up a last few rays of sunset while in line.

paganfestposter

Review &  photos by Metalette

Every year, Paganfest brings out a fascinating crowd – a subdivision of the LA metal scene that you otherwise never get to see! The SoCal vikings and heathens come out to party in their chainmail and warpaint and tattered fur, and many fans sport plastic-horned helmets if nothing else. The festival also draws an admirably diverse group of fans; all age-ranges, races, and genders appreciate the uniquely good time that is offered at Paganfest. I kid you not, there was a white-haired old lady sitting in the VIP section, bopping her head along to all the bands’ sets.

Korpiklaani to play at Rockstad: Falun 2013!

December 9th, 2012

While other folk metal bands began with metal before adding folk music, Korpiklaani started with folk music before turning metal.

 

The roots of Korpiklaani can be traced back to a Sami folk music group under the name of Shamaani Duo, an “in house restaurant band” created by Jonne Järvelä in 1993.

 

An album of folk music (Hunka Lunka) was released under this name before Järvelä relocated and formed a new band Shaman. The folk metal act Shaman was based on the folk music of Shamaani Duo. Two albums were released in 1999 and 2001 before Shaman changed their name to Korpiklaani. The change in name was accompanied by a change in the music. The traditional yoik vocals and the use of the Sámi language were dropped while the synthesizer was replaced with real folk instruments.

 

Jonne Järvelä credits his work with Finntroll as the catalyst for the shift in emphasis from folk to metal.

Their song lyrics are often related to alcohol and partying.

 

According to Jonne Järvelä, Korpiklaani’s music would be seen as “old people’s music with heavy metal guitars” in Finland.

KORPIKLAANI Interview – Guitarist Kalle “Cane” Savijärvi

July 28th, 2012

Korpiklaani Interview

with Guitarist Kalle "Cane" Savijärvi

 www.korpiklaani.com

By Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

 

Born in a land which is touched by the creeping fingers of the Arctic, and at times may not see night or day, Finland’s Korpiklaani seem perfectly suited to the blend of folk’s culture and metal’s hard edge. Heritage has always been at the heart of the band, and new album Manala is no exception – it’s the realm of the dead in the national mythology if you weren’t already in the know. Sitting down with guitarist Kalle "Cane" Savijärvi we spin a few stories about Korpiklaani, Manala, and staying true….

KORPIKLAANI REVEALS FIRST DETAILS ON NEW ALBUM; “Manala” out August 14th on Nuclear Blast Records

May 9th, 2012
Korpiklaani

Korpiklaani

FINLAND – Finnish traditional folk metal pioneer, Korpiklaani, has revealed initial details on its upcoming 8th studio record, Manala. The band’s fourth Nuclear Blast Records release will hit stores on August 14th in North America.

Main man, Jonne Järvelä, has issued a statement explaining the concept behind the album’s title.

Manala is the realm of the dead – the underworld in Finnish mythology. Tuonela, Tuoni, Manala and Mana are used synonymously. This place is best known for its appearance in the Finnish national epic Kalevala, on which many of our new songs are based. In the 16th poem of Kalevala, Väinämöinen, a shamanistic hero travels to Manala to seek for knowledge about the dead. On the journey he meets the ferrywoman (similar to Charon), a girl, Tuonen tytti, or Tuonen piika (Death’s maid), who takes him across the river of Tuoni. However, on the isle of Tuoni he is not given the spells he was originally looking for and he barely manages to escape the place. After his return he curses anyone trying to enter the place alive.”

While these mystical Finnish lyrics may sound intimidating to some, don’t worry; Manala will come with a bonus CD, including the whole album with English lyrics.

Stay tuned for further information! In the meantime, check out the song, “Metsälle,” a foretaste of the new compositions:
