In anticipation of their upcoming new record, Finnish folk metal superstars KORPIKLAANI now reveal the cover artwork of »Noita«. Artwork was done by Jan Yrlund, from Darkgrove Design who has created all the Korpiklaani covers in recent years and once again has come up with another Masterpiece. You can pre-order your copy of »Noita«, which will be out May 01 (EU), May 04 (UK) and May 05 (US) via Nuclear Blast, here:
»Noita« has been recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording and mixing again. It will also be the first KORPIKLAANI-album to feature the new accordion player Sami Perttula, who has been added another dimension in the folk arrangements along with Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari.
