I spoke again with Tuomas Rounakari of Finnish band, KORPIKLAANI, ahead of their upcoming Australian tour.
He is so good to chat to. Great album 'Kulkija', has been out 8 months or so now. Check it out. Promises to be an entertaining show.

Finnish folk metal royalty Korpiklaani will return to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in six years and embark on a trek across the whole country in support of their 2018 opus "Kulkija". Korpiklaani's sound can only be described by the sheer bombastic, party-filled, alcohol-soaked vibes that resonate in every tune, and there's no band in the world who does it better!
Folk metal fans across the nations will be in awe and the sheer musicality and energy of these tireless Finns, as they belt out anthems of Shamanism and Partying. Along for the ride are New South Wales fusion-metal legends Troldhaugen, whose avant-garde approach to the base construct of folk metal is one that needs to be seen to be truly understood and appreciated.
