Finnish Folk-Metal-superstars KORPIKLAANI are pleased to announce that they have inked a new deal with Nuclear Blast for the release of their upcoming new album entitled Noita, which is tentatively set for a release in May 2015.

Noita has been recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording and mixing again.

Commented bass player Jarkko Aaltonen: “Noita in the traditional Finnish meaning is different than what people associate it with nowadays. Noita is a person with wider knowledge and understanding of the nature and who also was believed to possess paranormal or unnatural abilities. These people were often also referred to as “Tietäjä”, that exactly means someone with wider knowledge and understanding of pretty much everything. Native American medicine man is pretty much the same thing or actually all the different types of Shamans of the primitive peoples are the same thing. Noita is someone that you turn to when you need help of some kind. Finnish Noita had the ability to heal, just like their North American counterparts. They were very respected members of the society. Only later Christianity changed the word to mean something negative since those people were considered rivals by the church. Even in Finland this turned into a Witchhunt (=noitavaino) every now and then. Anyway, most people using Google Translate or similar will find the word “Witch” and will probably get a bit wrong idea of the meaning, since most will probably connect it with the black sabbaths, devil marks and such, when a way more correct translation would probably be medicine man or Shaman.”

Noita will also be the first KORPIKLAANI album featuring new accordionist Sami Pertulla, and he had this to say:

“Previously the KORPIKLAANI albums were played with a piano-accordion and now I play with a traditional button-accordion which was more widely used in Finland anyways. In the arrangements you can hear more tonal harmonies and folky accompaniments combined to the power-chords than before. It actually boosts up the uplifting feel of our music.”

Violinist Toumas Rounakari also comments: “This album has more violin solos than ever before. Violin is more in the role of a lead-guitar now just as Jonne had originally intended it to be.”

And vocalist Jonne Järvelä concludes: “We have finally managed to create the balance between folk and metal in the way I’ve always dreamt it to be. Thanks to Sami’s arrangements and Tuomas’s crazy shredding of the violin.”

In March, KORPIKLAANI will be headlining the Paganfest Extended Shows in Europe and will additionally play a run of European festival later this year. North American tour dates to be announced soon!
