KORPIKLAANI To release first ever live package in August; pre-orders available!


One does not simply stop Korpiklaani. For the first time ever, the Finns have captured and immortalised the power of their live performance on their first ever live Blu-ray/DVD+2CD package titled ‘Live at Masters of Rock’. Due to be released on August 25th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast. After hearing its title, it's easy to conclude that the performance was recorded at the identically named festival in Vizovice, Czech Republic. But there's even more to be excited about, this release doesn't just include Korpiklaani's show from 2016, it even houses a second full show from 2014 as a bonus feature. The 2016 concert features guest appearances from Tero Hyväluoma (additional fiddler) as well as Toni Perttula (additional accordion player), Sami's identical twin brother. The mixing and mastering of ‘Live at Masters of Rock’ were handled by front man Jonne Järvelä.

Jonne comments, 
"This our first ever DVD release, and we are quite proud of it. It has no backing tracks, no choirs, no samples, all the mistakes are included. It is just us, Korpiklaani, pure live rock 'n' roll…
I spent a lot of time during the mastering process with Svante Forsbäck who recently handled the Rammestein mastering and we worked very hard to get the right ambience and crowd sound. So when you turn it up loud, it feels like you are right there in the thick of it."

As a first taster, a live clip of 'Pilli on pajusta tehty' has been launched today. Check it out, here: https://youtu.be/20zqi-7QKP0
