Two titans of Folk Metal united for their fans in NYC at the PST. They’ll be joined by Gone In April and you don’t want to miss this one.
There is nothing that I like more than an exciting Metal concert experience and when I saw the news about the co-headlining run of Korpiklaani and Eluveitie I couldn’t wait to help share the news along. These are two of my favorite Folk Metal bands overall and I am so glad that they are constantly coming to our side of the pond thanks to their label Nuclear Blast Records. Read on through the extensive press release below and I will return at the close.
The Press Release:
Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are proud to announce their North American Wanderers Towards Rebirth (Kulkija ad Ategnatos) co-headlining tour with label mates Swiss masters of death-infused folk-metal, ELUVEITIE. The 24-date trek will kick off at The Orpheum in Tampa, FL on September 19th and will make stops in Dallas, Seattle and Montreal before concluding in New York on October 14th. Joining the bands on tour is GONE IN APRIL.
Jonne states, “We are very much looking forward to the second North American leg of our Kulkija world tour. This time it will be a co-headlining tour with the Switzerland’s own Eluveitie. First half of the North American tour at the end of the last year was a great success, so it is only natural that we will return there this soon.

The Details: Sound the trumpets of righteous battle and prepare yourself for was because the 2014 edition of Paganfest America is here and that news finds my Metal blood reaching the boiling point. For those new to the touring package, this particular event has been hitting our shores for a few years now and brings us an exciting roster of bands for sure. This year’s event finds Korpiklaani, Turisas, Chthonic and Varg as the international touring acts that will be joined by the USA forged Winterhymn as the lead off band. I have seen all of these bands in the past and know that songs will be sung long afterward and many ales will be hoisted during the event that will hit Irving Plaza when it makes a stop here. To say that my journalistic sword is sharpened in anticipation for glorious combat is an understatement and that makes me happy to announce that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, several of the PiercingMetal Legions will be joining me in the fray on this epic night.
