Finnish folk metal band Korpiklaani have just released a video for the song “Metsälle.” The song is off the bands 8th studio album Kunnia which is set to be released this summer. Kunnia is a follow up to the bands 2011 album Ukon Wacka on Nuclear Blast. “Metsälle” is a concept song that is better explained by frontman Jonne Järvelä
“‘Metsälle’ can be seen as kind of a prayer to the ancient gods to ask for luck for the tough hunt deep in the woods in cold winter time. Not only is the old man in the song praying for success but – even more importantly – for a safe way through the dangerous frostiness.”
True to Jarvela’s words the song sounds like a bearded man shouting a prayer at the sky. You can listen here.
