Korpiklaani Premiere New Song “Kotikonnut” From Upcoming New Album “Kulkija”

Korpiklaani premiere a new song entitled “Kotikonnut” (meaning Homestead in English), taken from their upcoming new album “Kulkija”, which will be out in stores September 7 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Check out now “Kotikonnut” below.

Explains Korpiklaani:

“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.”

Paradise Lost To Re-Release 2001 Album, “Believe In Nothing”

Gothic metal pioneers Paradise Lost has announced that, following quickly on from the re-release of their 1999 album, “Host,” Nuclear Blast will be re-releasing the 2001 album, “Believe In Nothing.” The album will be remixed and remastered and include new artwork, which you can see below. The band has also posted a lyric video for the song, “Mouth,” which received the music video treatment in the initial promotion for the album, which can also be seen below.

Vocalist Nick Holmes stated: “It’s no secret that we were never entirely happy with the production on this record, despite really liking the songs. It’s been a long time coming, but we finally found the right moment to go back into the studio with Gomez (Orgone Studios) and play around with it. We hope you all enjoy the remixed version so you can hear how the songs were meant to sound.”
