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.

Ruadh to release new studio album “The Rock of the Clyde” on May 22nd 2020

Ruadh (which is pronounced “Roo-Ah” and translates to “red”) is an Atmospheric Black Metal solo-project from Glasgow, Scotland.

Drawing from the vast well of history, culture and mythology, musician and songwriter Tom Perrett set out to compose music purely to taste, creating an unmistakable atmosphere with the beating heart of old school Black Metal favourites of his, such as Windir, Bathory, Burzum and others, which should also appeal to fans of Saor, Winterfylleth, Panopticon and similar acts.
