Finnish Black Metal solo formation Finland Korpituli has just released "The Ancient Spells of the Past", the project's debut full-length album. To mark the occasion, the entire album is now being streamed online via the BMP YouTube channel, check it out below:

 


The complete tracklist for the new album is as follows:

  1. On Forgotten Paths
  2. At Nightfall
  3. Longing for the Unheard Of
  4. Into the Magical Realm of the Woods
  5. The Ancient Spells of the Past
  6. Pale Homeward Souls


Korpituli was formed earlier this year by Oulu-based musician Joonas "Scythe" Juntunen, who also plays in a number of other Finnish Black Metal bands, including Finland Wrathage and Finland Iku-Turso. Joonas also put together his own record label, Korpituli Productions, for the album's release.

Korpituli's lyrical themes deal heavily with the mystical side of nature and Finnish folklore, and Joonas invites listeners to experience this through his music:

Pause for a while and take a journey with us on these forgotten paths, into the dark mystical woods, feel the sense of longing for something unheard for, something that perhaps never was or never again shall be, to a realm beyond the pass of time and feel the serene grief when you behold the pale wandering lost souls on their endless voyage to a home they cannot reach- I hope you enjoy your stay.


And specifically regarding the song "Into the Magical Realm of the Woods", which was made available for listening earlier this month:

In Finnish Folklore there is a place or phenomenon called "Metsän Peitto" (A planket/cover of forest) which is an otherwordly realm or state of being in the woods. There time stands still, all the voices grow silent and also the familiar places seem different. Usually a Maahinen (gnome/nature spirit) leads you there and sometimes you never return.


Here's a closer look at the entrancing cover art, which was designed by Karl Diefenbach:
