Finnish metal stalwarts of the traditional folk variety Korpiklaani have released the second in a series of video breakdowns of their forthcoming album Manala. The record is set to be released August 14, 2012 via Nuclear Blast with an extensive North American tour to follow soon after.
Manala will be the eighth studio album released by Korpiklaani and the follow up to Ukon Wacka which was released all the way back in 2011. These guys are always working and if their music is something you are into then it is highly recommended that you seek out and listen to singer/guitarist Jonne Järvelä’s first band Shaman.
Two music videos have also been recently released by the band for the songs “The Steel” and “Rauta.” Both are taken from Manala so it is a good chance to get a taste of what to expect. You can find those videos here. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br8iEp3swbs[/youtube]
