Korpiklaani evolved from a handful of earlier monikers and line-ups, with the core members sticking together and letting their sound evolve. In 2003, fans of the band Shaman were thrilled to see the group morph into a new and different sound and vibe. Korpiklaani, the new evolution of Shaman, became a folk metal group who are best known for their thrash-like vocals and unique use of folk instruments throughout their music. The band’s name translates to “Forest Clan” in Finnish and this deep, dark imagery is evident throughout the sound on their many awesome albums.

Korpiklaani boast 12 albums to their name, changing their early sound from synthesizers to their current metal folk feel. Focusing their lyrics on party culture, Korpiklaani provide the perfect soundtrack for rocking out and having a great time with friends.
