KORPIKLAANI To Enter Studio Next Month

Finnish folk metallers KORPIKLAANI will enter the studio on February 15 to begin recording their sixth album, "Karkelo" (English translation: "Party"), tentatively due in June via Nuclear Blast Records. According to the band, the recordings for the 14-song CD "will start in Hollola, Petrax studio, where Matson [drummer Matti Johansson] will do his drum work. After that, we will switch to the Grooveland Recording Studio in Lahti, where the rest of the recordings will be made under the demanding eyes of the producer Aksu Hanttu."

KORPIKLAANI's latest CD, "Korven Kuningas", came out on March 21, 2008. The CD entered the album chart in the band's home country at position No. 16.

"Korven Kuningas" was released as a limited first edition with bonus tracks and on white colored vinyl. There is also a strictly limited digipak version (limited and numbered to 500 copies) which includes a drinking horn on a wall holder.
