ITP V.015 UPDATE: NETWORKED BLOGS NOT WORKING

ITP V.015 UPDATE: TEST POST for a syndicate, BBL.
There IS a problem with NETWORKED BLOGS FEED, it's not working since the BRIAN SHIELDS ITP V.015 ONLY ONE PER COFFIN journal entry. I'm posting ITP V.015 DIRECTLY to FACEBOOK from BLOGGER.






NETWORKED BLOGS being the LEAST of ITP syndicates, I'm NOT too worried. Yes, I've heard of NETWORKED BLOGS sister syndicate SYMPHONY, NO I'm NOT joining SYMPHONY as I don't have too, I won't pay and NETWORKED BLOGS should STILL be active.

Any bullshit and threats (SUSAN BLACKBURN) from impersonators, neighbors, you are under ARREST, you don't own my blog. and no I won't pay rent, it's not even due until tomorrow, and I'm not in debt.  


FROM SYMPHONY:

Will this effect my NetworkedBlogs account?

Nope. You can, and should keep your blog registered in NetworkedBlogs to continue to be included in your followers' news reader and daily email digests.
Symphony is for publishing and social media management. And NetworkedBlogs is for following blogs and getting followers.





It's been a nightmare weekend for writers/editors, BRIAN SHIELDS (HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY)  and KATHERINE LUDWIG (METAL MANIACS) both awesome metal and news editors and kindred spirits have both passed.
R.I.P.



Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

KORPIKLAANI: SET TO UNLEASH "Noita"

Finnish folk metal warriors KORPIKLAANI have re-newed their recor deal with NUCLEAR BLAST as the band is set to release "Noita" due ro be unleashed 5/2015 (release date T.B.A.).  
Last year,  KORPIKLAANI announced accordion player "JUHO" has retired from the band.









KORPIKLAANI unleashed "Manala" 8/3/2012 on NUCLEAR BLAST.

FROM KORPIKLAANI:

KORPIKLAANI – resign to Nuclear Blast & announce new album!

Finnish Folk-Metal-superstars KORPIKLAANI are pleased to announce that they have inked a new deal with Nuclear Blast for the release of their upcoming new album entitled »Noita«, which is set for a release in May 2015.

»Noita« has been recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording and mixing again. It will also be the first album to feature new accordion player Sami Perttula, who has been playing a very active role in the folk arrangements along with Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari.

Commented bassplayer Jarkko Aaltonen: ““Noita” in the traditional Finnish meaning is different than what people associate it with nowadays. “Noita” is a person with wider knowledge and understanding of the nature and who also was believed to possess paranormal or unnatural abilities. These people were often also referred to as “Tietäjä”, that exactly means someone with wider knowledge and understanding of pretty much everything. Native American medicine man is pretty much the same thing or actually all the different types of Shamans of the primitive peoples are the same thing. “Noita” is someone that you turn to when you need help of some kind. Finnish “Noita” had the ability to heal, just like their North American counterparts. They were very respected members of the society. Only later Christianity changed the word to mean something negative since those people were considered rivals by the church. Even in Finland this turned into a Witchhunt (=noitavaino) every now and then. Anyway, most people using Google Translate or similar will find the word “Witch” and will probably get a bit wrong idea of the meaning, since most will probably connect it with the black sabbaths, devil marks and such, when a way more correct translation would probably be medicine man or Shaman.”

»Noita« will also be the first KORPIKLAANI-album featuring new accordionist Sami Perttula, he comments: “Previously the KORPIKLAANI albums were played with a piano-accordion and now I play with a traditional button-accordion which was more widely used in Finland anyways. In the arrangements you can hear more tonal harmonies and folky accompaniments combined to the power-chords than before. It actually boosts up the uplifting feel of our music.”

Violinist Tuomas Rounakari also comments: “This album has more violin solos than ever before. Violin is more in the role of a lead-guitar now just as Jonne had originally intended it to be.”

And vocalist Jonne Järvelä concludes: “We have finally managed to create the balance between folk and metal in the way I’ve always dreamt it to be. Thanks to Sami’s arrangements and Tuomas’s crazy shredding of the violin.”

In March, KORPIKLAANI will be headlining the Paganfest Extended Shows and will additionally play a run of European festival later this year.

KORPIKLAANI – unterschreiben neuen Vertrag mit Nuclear Blast & kündigen neues Album an!

Die finnischen Folk-Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI freuen sich, bekannt geben zu dürfen, dass sie einen neuen Vertrag mit Nuclear Blast unterschrieben haben. Ihr neues Album mit dem Titel »Noita«, ist zur Veröffentlichung im Mai 2015 angesetzt.

»Noita« wurde im Petrax Studio gemeinsam mit Produzent & Mischer Aksu Hanttu aufgenommen. »Noita« ist das erste Album auf dem Neuzugang Sami Perttula am Akkordeon zu hören sein wird. Zusammen mit Fiedler Tuomas Rounakari war Sami stark in die Erstellung der Folk-Arrangements involviert.

Dazu Bassist Jarkko Aaltonen: „Im traditionellen finischen Sinne hat “Noita”eine andere Bedeutung, als es heute der Fall ist. “Noita” ist eine Person mit großem Wissen, besonders über die Natur, der auch paranormale oder übernatürliche Fähigkeiten zugesagt wurden. Diese Leute wurden auch oft als “Tietäjä” bezeichnet, was besagt, dass diese Personen grundsätzlich einfach mehr wissen. Bei den amerikanischen Ureinwohnern waren die Medizin-Männer genau das gleiche und das trifft auch auf alle Formen des primitiven Schamanismus zu. “Noita” ist eine Person, an die du dich wendest, wenn du Hilfe brauchst. Die finnischen “Noita” konnten heilen und wurden von der Gesellschaft respektiert, genau wie ihre nordamerikamischen Gegenstücke. Erst durch das Christentum wurde das Wort mit einer negativen Bedeutung behaftet, da die Christen davon überzeugt waren, dass dies eine Bedrohung für ihren Glauben darstelle. Sogar in Finnland entstand daraus die ein oder andere Hexenjagt(=noitavaino). Die meisten Leute, die Google Translate oder ähnliches benutzten werden das Wort “Hexe” finden und dadurch eine etwas falsche Vorstellung von der eigentlichen Bedeutung erhalten. Hier geht es nämlich nicht um schwarze Messen, Teufelsanbetung oder derartige Dinge. Eine passendere Übersetzung wäre Medizin-Mann oder Schamane.“

»Noita« wird zudem das erste KORPIKLAANI-Album mit Neuzugang Sami Perttula sein. Dazu Sami: „Auf den voherigen KORPIKLAANI Alben gab es ein Piano-Akkordeon zu hören und ich habe jetzt ein traditionelles Knopf-Akkordeon gespielt, das in Finnland ohnehin viel verbreiteter ist. Die Harmonien und Folk-Arrangement klingen so viel besser in Kombination mit den Power-Chords. Das verleiht unserer Musik noch zusätzlich ein positives Feeling.“

Violinist Tuomas Rounakari fügt hinzu: “Auf diesem Album sind zudem mehr Geigen-Solos zu finden, als es bisher der Fall war. Die Geige hat dadurch die Rolle einer Leadgitarre übernommen, so wie es Jonne von Anfang an geplant hat.“

Sänger Jonne Järvelä dazu: “Wir haben es endlich geschafft, die perfekte Balance zwischen Folk und Metal zu kreieren, von der wir immer geträumt haben. Dank der Arrangements von Sami und des wilden Geigenspiels von Tuomas.“

Neben zahlreichen Festivalgigs, sind KORPIKLAANI im März als Headliner bei den Paganfest Extended Shows zu sehen.

20.03. DE Leipzig - Hellraiser
21.03. D Oberhausen - Turbinenhalle
22.03. NL Tilburg - 013
