Double vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the Finnish Metal band. Ever since their 2003 debut album, Spirit Of The Forest, Korpiklaani have continuously made their way to absolute top of the "Humppa" (Finnish Polka) metal scene. 2009's Karkelo made an impact in the States on tours such as the Paganfest. Fans call their music "drinking-metal" or "party-metal" as they write cheerful, fun-loving folk songs that are undeniably catchy. On Manala, however, they focus on a more serious tone, particularly the Finnish national epic Kalevala. Manala is the realm of the dead and these songs concern a shamanistic hero who travels there in search of knowledge about the dead. Manala has a very ancient and heavily folk-influenced feel and is completely sung in Finnish, save for one powerful song - exclusive to their North American fans!
