The energetic workaholics that make up Folk Metallers Korpiklaani return with their ninth studio album 'Noita,' which promises to get you dancing on feet, banging your fists and most importantly, having a good time. It will also be the first album to feature new accordion player Sami Perttula, who has had a remarkable influence on the traditional folk arrangements, along with Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari, making a perfect balance between Folk and Metal as frontman Jonne always envisioned.
New accordionist Sami Perttula comments on his first album with the band: "Previously the Korpiklaani albums were played with a piano-accordion and now I play with a traditional button-accordion which was more widely used in Finland anyways. In the arrangements you can hear more tonal harmonies and folky accompaniments combined to the power-chords than before. It actually boosts up the uplifting feel of our music."
Violinist Tuomas Rounakari adds: "This album has more violin solos than ever before. Violin is more in the role of a lead-guitar now just as Jonne had originally intended it to be." And vocalist Jonne Järvelä concludes: "We have finally managed to create the balance between folk and metal in the way I've always dreamt it to be. Thanks to Sami's arrangements and Tuomas's crazy shredding of the violin."
