Description

Digipak CD

»Kulkija« begins with a band-typical opening trio in the form of 'Neito', 'Korpikuusen Kyynel' and 'Aallon Aala', but then a beautiful acoustic ballad entitled 'Harmaja', gives the listener a first break to take breath. Continuing with 'Kotikonnut', also the first single, 'Korppikalliota' leads to 'Kallon malja', which is the album’s longest track at around 10 minutes. Track 8, the doomy 'Sillanrakentaja', surprises with a children’s choir (feat. Cane’s and Jonne’s children), before 'Henkselipoika' takes over. This song may sound familiar to some people as it has already premiered live on KORPIKLAANI’s extensive European tour with HEIDEVOLK, ARKONA and TROLLFEST in early 2018. The instrumental track 'Pellervoinen', written by fiddler Tuomas, opens up the last third of »Kulkija« with its charming folk arrangements, followed by 'Riemu' and 'Kuin korpi nukkuva', before another high-paced track, 'Joumamaa', leads to the peaceful outro, 'Tuttu on tie'.

»Kulkija« was recorded at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna, Finland with producer/mixing engineer Janne Saksa in November 2017 and the final result presents the band as you’ve never heard them before. The corresponding detailed cover artwork was designed by Jan Yrlund (BATTLEBEAST, MANOWAR a.o.), who has been working with the band since their 3rd album, and shows a beautiful landscape, based on a real photo taken by Jan at Huhtalan torppa, Kuhmoinen, Finland.
