Korpiklaani Posts New Music Video, “Harmaja” Online

Finnish Folk Metal Superstars Korpiklaani are set to release their new studio album ‘Kulkija’ (‘Wanderer’) on September 7th 2018 via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band have unveiled the second single, “Harmaja,” in the form of a thought-provoking music video. Watch the clip, directed by Ville Lipiäinen (Nightwish, Beast In Black, Powerwolf), below.

Says Jonne; “‘Harmaja’ is an unusual Korpiklaani song with its slow tempo and emotional strength. The song is about longing and I managed to charge it with a great emotional atmosphere. When making the album we mostly used the first takes; we didn’t get stuck in details when there was no particular need to.

“I was surprised – although in a positive sense – that Nuclear Blast wanted to release ‘Harmaja’ as a single and a video. Usually they prefer more uptempo, fun drinking songs. The new album ‘Kulkija’ of course has that material too since being over an hour long it contains the entire scope of different emotions.

“I bought a new classical guitar and started to re-acquaint myself with the 5-finger picking technique. I created a finger exercise that then formed the basis of the song. I sent a very basic version of the song to our lyricist Tuomas Keskimäki who, in the same evening, sent back the lyrics for ‘Harmaja’. The text refers to ‘Sylvian Joululaulu’, a well known poem about longing by Zachris Topelius. I sang the demo in my home studio immediately and that was it – the song felt good and strong right away and I knew that it was going to end up on the album.

“The video was shot in the pool of the Maritime Safety Training Centre in Lohja. The water was so cold that even constant visits to the sauna couldn’t stop the coldness from creeping into my bones. It was very difficult to remember the lyrics, keep my head above the surface of the water and sing – while at the same time trying to look like I wasn‘t freezing to death. All for art!

“Lipiäinen knew exactly what was needed for the video and managed to create just the right atmosphere. Lipiäinen knew exactly what was needed for the video and managed to create just the right atmosphere. The shots change slowly, there is no rush with anything and the story stays just right above the surface until the more stormy ending.”

Six Feet Under releases collection of previously unreleased material, ‘Unburied’, today via Metal Blade Records

– July 7th, 2018 –

Launches “Gore Hungry Maniac” lyric video

Artwork by Dusty Peterson

Today (July 6th), Six Feet Under has released a new album of previously unreleased material, entitled Unburied, via Metal Blade Records. Produced by Six Feet Under‘s Chris Barnes and mixed/mastered by Chaz Najjar at Badlands Recording (Denver, CO), the collection features 9 tracks from the Undead (2012), Unborn (2013) and Torment (2017) sessions; Unburied is only available digitally now at: metalblade.com/sixfeetunder

For a preview of Unburied, a lyric video featuring hand-painted art (created by by Septian Devenom) for the track “Gore Hungry Maniac” can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=-qoj0XVY-ug

Front-man Chris Barnes comments: “I feel ‘Unburied‘ is something special and interesting to release, that is different, being that this is our first digital-only release and the songs are all in their rawest and earliest form. It was also a shame for the songs to just sit there and go to waste – I knew the fans would dig them, and also everyone involved worked so hard writing and putting them together. I always felt like the tracks were excellent Six Feet Under material, and wanted to finish and release them at the time of each release – but there was just so much material that was put together for the ‘Undead‘ and ‘Unborn‘ sessions, that eight songs were basically left over in the demo stages. Also one song from the ‘Torment‘ session that Jeff Hughell wrote – ‘As the Dying Scream’ – was left over in its demo stage as well. Hopefully you enjoy these tracks and it holds you over ’til the next full-length album!”

Unburied track-listing
1. Violent Blood Eruption (Savage/Barnes)
2. Midnight in Hell (Laine/Barnes)
3. Gore Hungry Maniac (Englund/Barnes)
4. Re-Animated (Englund/Barnes)
5. Intent to Kill (Englund/Barnes)
6. The Perverse (Arnold/Barnes)

Cyhra Debut New Video “Here To Save You” – Bassist Peter Iwers (Ex-In Flames) Exits Band

Cyhra debut a new live video for their track “Here To Save You“. Explains the band’s vocalist Jake E: “Releasing “Here To Save You” as a live video was something that we thought of already after finishing up the song in the demo studio. And as we got the possibility to open up for Sabaton and Kreator a couple of months back it was a no-brainer to just make sure to put it on film.

I love how we were able to capture all the positive response, both within the band but also all the love we got for our newfound fans in the US & Canada. Every time I watch it I just want to go back out on the road! I hope you will like it as much as we do!”

In other news, Cyhra’s bassist Peter Iwers (ex-In Flames) has stepped down from the band. Iwers was joined in the band by former In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad. Comments the band on Iwers‘ departure:

“It’s sad to part ways with Peter as a member, but we are still very good friends and will always be. He has our full support in this decision and we wish him nothing else than the best in the future!”

Cyhra won’t immediately be replacing Iwers and will instead have his backing tracks in place at their immediate upcoming shows.
