Korpiklaani Unveils New Album "Manala" Artwork

Finnish folk metal pioneers Korpiklaani have issued further details on their upcoming 8th studio album “Manala,” which will be released via Nuclear Blast on the 3rd of August. The cover artwork was created by Finnish artist Jan Yrlund, and Korpiklaani vocalist Jonne Järvelä states:

“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.”
