Korpiklaani - Kulkija

“This record is so easy to listen to and interesting all the time, the balance is simply perfect.”
Chartmakers Mastering (Svante Forsbäck)
“With its organic vibe and peaceful melodies, Kulkija invites you to take a deep breath and to chill out!”
METALLIAN (F)
The wait is finally over for fans of Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani! The band has finally released their highly-anticipated 10th studio album, ‘Kulkija’ (“Wanderer”) via Nuclear Blast. To mark the occasion, the group kicks off an extensive Russian tour in St. Petersburg today.
Comments founding member Jonne, “It’s been 15 years since we released our very first album and this is now our 10th album. After each and every album I always sit down and think about the music, and conclude that it is our best work yet. The great thing is that it was never promo bullsh*t, I honestly felt like that.”
 
Now it’s the day of our ‘Kulkija’ album release, I’m sitting on a train to Russia for the first show of our ‘Kulkija’ world tour and I’m feeling good and proud of these 15 years and the best possible 10th Korpiklaani album!”
As if this wasn’t enough, Korpiklaani have launched the final part of a track-by-track series in support of their new offering in which vocalist Jonne, fiddler Tuomas, and accordionist Sami reveal more details about the new tunes. This episode features the following songs:
10. Pellervoinen
11. Riemu
12. Kuin korpi nukkuva
13. Juomamaa
14. Tuttu on tie

With 14 tracks and a total running time of over 71 minutes, ‘Kulkija’ is the group’s longest album to date. Working with producer Janne Saksa for the first time, the album was recorded at Petrax Studio (Hollola, FIN) and mixed at Sound Supreme Studios (Hämeenlinna, FIN). Mastering duties were handled by renowned engineer Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein a.o.).

The cover was designed by Jan Yrlund (Battle BeastManowar etc.), who has already created several artworks for previous albums and singles for the band.

Founding member Jonne commented: “We’ve never been as satisfied with a final result as we are with ‘Kulkija.’ We tried to keep it very natural. Like the wanderer, this album is a journey, one that makes you feel good.”

Sami 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 and I had lots of space to develop and play the folk arrangements.”
