korpiklaani 2

Korpiklaani Streaming “Lempo” Lyric Video

Korpiklaani

Korpiklaani is streaming the lyric video for “Lempo” below. The song is off their new album Noita, out on May 5, 2015 in North America via Nuclear Blast.

Commented Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari:

“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.”

The band will be doing an upcoming North American tour with Ensiferum. Prior to the start of the tour, they have added a few headline shows with Trollfest as support.
