Korpiklaani Release Digital Single And Live Clip “Erämaan ärjyt”!

Just under two weeks to go until Korpiklaani’s first ever live Blu-ray/DVD+2CD package titled Live at Masters of Rock will see the light of day on August 25th through Nuclear Blast. The band’s folk section revealed interesting info on the special show they played at Masters of Rock in 2016 (Disc 1), but now it’s about time for the Folk Metal Superstars to unveil another musical appetizer from this upcoming live release. Check out a brand-new live clip of “Erämaan ärjyt” below:

Pre-order Live at Masters of Rock here, or pre-order Live at Masters of Rock digitally and receive “Pilli on pajusta tehty (live)” plus “Erämaan ärjyt (live)” instantly or stream both tracks here, or listen in NB Novelties Playlist here.

After hearing the title of the package, it’s easy to conclude that it 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 has a second full show from 2014 as 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. Mixing of Live at Masters of Rock was handled by front man Jonne Järvelä himself, mastering was done by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein etc.)

Jonne comments, “This our first ever DVD release, which we are quite proud of. It has no backing tracks, no choirs, no samples, all the mistakes are included. It is just us, Korpiklaani, pure live rock ‘n’ roll.”

He also adds, “I spent a lot of time during the mastering process with Svante Forsbäck who recently handled the Rammstein mastering and we worked hard to achieve the right ambience and crowd sound. So when you turn it up loud, it feels like you are right there in the middle.”

Sami adds, “For us, our bigger shows means more folk musicians, which are much cheaper than pyro, for example my brother agreed to this show for a few beers and he doesn’t even drink much!”
