KORPIKLAANI's New Song "Kotikonnut" Is Solid Folk Metal
Korpiklaani will release their new album Kulkija on September 7 and you can check out their new song "Kotikonnut" below. The band hasn't specifically stated that their new song will heavily be based on the letter "K," but I'm not seeing a whole lot of evidence against that either.
Korpiklaani does explain the concept behind the new song though, whose title translates to "Homestead."
During his journey, a wanderer yearningly looks back on his home, childhood and the beauty of everything. He remembers running with his girl on the meadow, believing it to last till the end of times. Although his home is now the road and a carriage run by joy, he will still always remember the happiness of his home and youth. At the time the moon was golden, shining everywhere at night, lighting up the otherwise dark countryside and the forest. The wanderer eventually accepts that everything that comes, will one day fade into a distant memory.
"Kotikonnut" is a lyric video, but if you don't speak Finnish it's not going to do you a whole lot of good.
