Korpiklaani: “Lempo” Single Released!

Korpiklaani fans rejoice! A new song is finally here! The Finnish folk metallers recently announced that they would be releasing their new album, “Noita“, on May 5th via Nuclear Blast, and today we have our first taste of the new material! Here’s what Tuomas Rounakari said on the “Lempo” single: “‘Lempo’ is a fiery God of fertility and the song is about the spells designated to Lempo in order to guarantee a success in one’s personal love life. The Finnish mythology is very unique in its approach to sexuality. We do not have spells to improve procreation like most of the cultures do. But the spells to gain more luck in love life or to increase ones stamina are numerous for both men and women. Lempo is also closely related to fire and one could see the hair of Lempo flashing in the red and yellow flames of fire. The song is a prime example of the new KORPIKLAANI sound with a lead guitar like violin solo and more prominent folk arrangements. It takes a step towards progressive rock balancing the folk and metal in a way Jonne has always dreamed it to be.

Blast “Lempo” below, catch them on tour with Ensiferum in May (dates), and pre-order “Noita” NOW!
