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

“‘The Early Years’ will give both old and new fans access to the very first steps in ELUVEITIE’s history. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years already! Speaking of that, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary (2002-2012) we wanted to offer you something special. Therefore we have decided to re-record the tracks of our first EP ’Vên’! We had a lot of fun putting those songs on tape again – some of which we have been playing live to this day and that have developed together with us over all these years.”

Video: Korpiklaani debuts “Metsälle”

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, March 30, 2012 at 9:22 AM (PST)

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.

Cover Art Battle: Stones, Chics, & Nooses

Posted by JDKleinhans on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 9:06 AM (PST)

Welcome to Metal Riot’s Cover Art Battle! Every week we try and show the best-of-the-best in metal cover art, ranging from the fantastically illustrated to hauntingly photographed and everything in between.

This is a quieter week but not nearly as bad as that third week in February. Now that was a bad release week. Though Pallbearer‘s Sorrow and Extinction (Profound Lore) was pretty damn good. There just wasn’t a lot of releases. Only two I think. I’m rambling again aren’t I?

Anyway, here it is, this week’s top seven covers left for you to vote on (they’re all multisyllabic band names!): Cult Cinema, Diabolus In Musica, Hail Spirit Noir, Heidevolk, Hellsaw, Pharaoh, Xandria.

We can’t divine this shit, so get your asses moving and get to voting! Here!
