Korpiklaani Comments On Upcoming Album "Ukon Wacka"

Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani have issued the following announcement about releasing a new album:

"Dear fans, a bit late, but still a big thanks to all of you who came to our shows. We were happy to see so many old friends again and meet so many new ones! We have a little surprise for you; we will go on tour again in March 2011, a new Paganfest Tour! Apart from us, also Unleashed, Moonsorrow, Varg, Arafel and Kivimetsän Druidi will play, and on some special shows even Eluveitie and Heidevolk will take part. So, a big box full of goodies will be presented to you, for long evenings with great music, atmosphere and joy!

"We have been pretty busy finishing our upcoming album Ukon Wacka. Ukon Wacka, or Ukon Vakat, is a pagan sacrificial feast from ancient times, on which a special made beer richly flowed. As can be expected from the title, this album has an ancient and very folky feel and is totally in Finnish. To make the lyrics understandable for non-Finnish people, we will add an English description/translation in the booklet as usual.

"The album consists of 10 songs, among which you will find a song name Tequila, which is especially written for (and inspired by) our South American fans, with whom we celebrated such hard times, and who welcomed us so warmly, when we were touring in South America. Another surprise is the title song, Ukon Wacka, in which a special guest features: the famous Finnish singer Tuomari Nurmio! Last but not least features a tribute song (Päät pois tai hirteen) to the Finnish rock band Peer Günt, a great and underestimated band. We hope and expect that this album will give you as much joy as we had making it; a big folky feast for all! You only have to wait a bit, the release date is scheduled for February 4th 2011."
