Labels are often forced upon bands by the press. How would you describe Korpiklaani to someone who isn't familiar with your music?
Korpiklaani is folk metal band and we are proud of the fact, that this is pure folk metal. We are using authentic folk instruments, like fiddle, accordion hurdy gurdy and flutes. Not trying to do it easy way using synthesizer. Our lyrics are about Finnish mythology, nature, drinking, women and other things, which are close to our hearts.
