Korpiklaani live review – London, Islington Academy
Venue: London Islington Academy
Finnish Vikings get their battle and booze bases covered, with support from Moonsorrow
Tonight London is invaded by the ‘Finnish folk metal mafia’: two bands who take inspiration from the traditions of their homeland, yet provide us with vastly different performances. As soon as the lights go down for MOONSORROW , a packed Academy is transported into a mystical world as flutes, goblin-like chanting and the sound of chains jangling seep from the stage.
