After having released details of their forthcoming HEIDEVOLK album including the title, artwork, track listing and release date, it’s time to get a first listen to the new record!
The first track of the record as well as first single to be released is “Ontwaakt” (awaken), the band gives a deeper insight of the track and story behind:
“Awaken, the Roman Empire is falling! The internal battle for power tears the Empire apart. Legions turn against each other, emperors bleed and Rome burns. It is time for the tribes of the Northern lands to unite and rise against the tyrant. To take back what is theirs and drive the invaders back to Rome. Every battle that is fought by my people resounds in Rome. With sword and shield the Empire will be banished and the voice of my people will be heard!”
Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are currently in the studio, working on the follow-up of 2015’s »Noita«, before they’ll embark on an extensive European headline run with support from Russia’s ARKONA, Dutch men HEIDEVOLK as well as Norwegian Trve Balkan MetallersTROLLFEST. The billing will be completed with EVERTALE, BLACK MESSIAH and THE PRIVATEER on select dates.
Now, KORPIKLAANI have launched a first trailer in which Jonne, Matson and Sami are greeting from the studio. Check it out, here:
