Korpiklaani - Manala

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

After the release of “Ukon Wacka” that left a bit unsatisfied the band’s fans, Finnish traditional Folk Metal pioneers KORPIKLAANI return in discography with their 8th studio album “Manala” with a new violinist in the lineup and a darker theme dealing with the mythical Finnish underworld. Lyrically, “Manala” is based on the famous Finnish national epic “Kalevala” that many Finnish bands draw inspiration from.

This MCD is a short appetizer for GRAVE DIGGER’s upcoming “Clash Of The Gods” that will see the light of the day one month after this one. And I say short since the MCD contains only one song that will be on the tracklist of the full length release, two non-album tracks and three live recordings. So, let’s see what the Germans are planning to release in the late of August.

Om - Advaitic Songs

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Even if it’s said that the world has seven wonders, San Francisco’s Doom droners OM present their own five miracles, wrapped up inside a Theogonic package which seems to be so enticing that is impossible to resist, even for the uninitiated listener. Following the success of Good God left behind (hint: I’m speaking about 2009’s “God Is Good” album), Al Cisneros and Emil Amos return with their fifth studio release “Advaitic Songs” and their fans are more than anxious to see what OM will reveal this time.
