Korpiklaani - Jylhä

Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani are back with their 11th studio release, “Jylhä”, via Nuclear Blast Records.
 
“Jylhä”, which roughly translates to “majestic” or “wild and rugged in a beautiful way”, is a pretty strong outing for being 11 albums deep as a band. It has all of the elements that Korpiklaani has become known for over the years. Upbeat songs, great usage of incorporating folk instruments, such as violins into their sound, and the raspy vocals of frontman Jonne Järvelä.
