06-06-2012, 05:38 AM

Finnish traditional folk metal pioneers KORPIKLAANI have issued further details including the artwork and track listing of their upcoming 8th studio album Manala. The cover artwork was created by Finnish artist Jan Yrlund (http://www.darkgrove.net). KORPIKLAANI vocalist Jonne Järvelä stated:

“On the album cover, our band mascot Vaari represents Väinämöinen, who is one of the main characters in the Finnish national epic Kalevala. As most of the lyrics on Manala are based on the Kalevala, Jan Yrlund decided to draw his inspiration for the cover artwork from the beautiful but yet brutal depiction of the underworld in Finnish mythology.”

The limited European Digipak edition of Manala comes with a bonus CD, including the whole album with lyrics in English. Manala will be released via Nuclear Blast on the August 3 (Europe) and August 14 (North America).

Didn't see any other posts about it and I figured someone else might be interested in it.

Hmm, I'm surprised nobody posted anything about it.
