KORPIKLAANI release lyric video for 'Beer Beer' feat Klamydia vocalist Vesku Joskinen





Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are about to kick off an extensive run of dates that will see them travelling across the globe throughout 2019. Kicking off with an 8 date Finnish tour on which they'll be joined on stage by a brass section from Lahti Sinfonia and with support from WALTARI, TROLLFEST and PROFANE OMEN, the band will then hit the road across Europe alongside TURISAS and TROLLFEST. To celebrate their epic trek, KORPIKLAANI has launched another track from their Beer Beer album, which will be included exclusively in the forthcoming Kulkija [Tour Edition], out February 15, 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Today's version features guest vocals by Vesku of Finnish punk rock band KLAMYDIA. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/3ASMLds26m4

Jonne states, "KLAMYDIA is one of the biggest and best selling rock bands in Finland, but just like POPEDA and porn magazines, well liked but often in the secrecy of the neighbours or at least a bit drunk. It was a great honour to have Vesku on 'Kaljaa'. I asked him and that was it. No need for business meetings or financial negotiations. Everything went smoothly and was very down to earth in the old school punk fashion. Now we need to get him to do this live with us! See you soon at our upcoming shows!"

Just recently, Pyynikin Craft Brewery unveiled a tasty KORPIKLAANI lager and to celebrate this occasion, the band will release a special tour edition of their new album Kulkija (Wanderer), which doesn't only include the regular songs, but also a bonus CD titled 'Beer Beer'. This disk, only available in the physical package, includes 14 versions of KORPIKLAANI's iconic song 'Beer Beer', graced by the likes of Christopher Bowes (ALESTORM), Steve 'Zetro' Souza (EXODUS), Andreas "Gerre" Geremia (TANKARD), Jesper Anastasiadis (TURISAS), TROLLFEST, HEIDEVOLK and many more of their friends.

The first taster is released today in the form of a lyric video to 'Beer Beer' and you can listen to the track with Christopher Bowes, here: https://youtu.be/pYP-QPPt_p0

The more ethereal band Jonne, led by the KORPIKLAANI lead vocalist Jonne Järvelä, will unveil a single trilogy started by the single 'Kaiho' that was released in November and also featured WALTARI vocalist Kärtsy Hatakka. The trilogy will be completed with the releases of 'Tuhka' in February and 'Autere' in March. Both of these songs will also feature vocalist Riikka Jaakkola, familiar from the series Voice Of Finland. All three songs deal with the emotions of death and longing and will be available for streaming and through other digital service channels.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
