KOR­PIK­LAANI

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums - DANNII LEIVERS

Live At Masters Of Rock DVD

NU­CLEAR BLAST Finland’s folk metal booz­ers get cap­tured in their el­e­ment Kor­pik­laani have squeezed a lot of mileage out of their boozedup, speed folk-metal jigs: 14 years and nine al­bums to be ex­act. While the Finns have rarely de­vi­ated from the polkain­flu­enced sonic path they forged on Spirit Of The Forest, they’ve al­ways put on a great show. This, their first live DVD, cap­tures how much fun it is to be in one of their soz­zled party pits. The three discs in­clude their 2016 show at the MAR fes­ti­val in Czech Repub­lic, their 2014 set there too, and au­dio of both shows. While the 2016 per­for­mance is the main fo­cus, with a big­ger pro­duc­tion and a big­ger crowd, its jux­ta­po­si­tion with an ear­lier show con­firms how far the band have come. At 19 songs per per­for­mance this is for the more ar­dent fan, but it’s also a re­minder that live is where Kor­pik­laani are in their true el­e­ment.
