Finnish crazy extreme folk metal warriors Verikalpa have released a lyric video for the song ‘Naulattujen Vaellus’, the second single taken from their new album ‘Tuoppitanssi’, out on February 21st, 2020 on Scarlet Records.
‘Naulattujen Vaellus’ tells the story of a brave warrior who dared to go against bloodthirsty forest folks, who soon found themselves not only defeated but nailed to tree chunks and carried all over to be mocked by an angry mob with pitchforks and torches.
Singing in his own native mother language (“Tuoppitanssi” actually stands for “pintdance”), the sextet combines fast up-tempos, raging vocals and brilliant melodies: a truly breathtaking assemblage of black, death & folk metal and symphonic elements.
‘Tuoppitanssi’ is an ecstatic journey through the Finnish folklore, superstitions and traditions; stories of old local pagan beliefs mixed with more outlandish fantasy elements that are all tied together by the unholy trinity of beer, blood and war!
‘Tuoppitanssi’ has been produced by Janne Huotari at Surf Sound studio (Oulu) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers Oy; artwork was handled by Sakari Forstadius.
