AFTER celebrating the release of their unique spruce-flavoured vodka with a live stream held at the Pyynikin Brewery, in Tampere, Finland, Korpiklaani have released a very special cover.
Their new single ‘”Sudenmorsian” is their take on Powerwolf’s “Where The Wild Wolves Have Gone”.
The band said: “When we were approached by Powerwolf, we agreed immediately and wanted to do something a little different and special.
“Once again Tuomas Keskimäki did his magic and adapted the lyrics into Finnish and made a fitting powerful tale.
“Of all the covers we have done over the years, this is one we are really proud of and cannot wait for everyone to hear this.”
“Sudenmorsian” (The Wolf’s Bride) tells the story of loneliness and lycanthropy. The story follows a man who is inseparable from his bride, but when summer’s gentle nights pass and darkness comes, the man turns into a wolf. He realises that if he surrenders to the call of nature, he’ll be destined to live alone.
It’s folky power metal, done exactly how that would be done, so you can’t really fault it.
