      A must listen album for a folk or metal fan

      Tervaskanto is Korpiklaani's 4th full album and was released in 2007, the band are pretty prolific at putting albums out a the moment and it's hard to catch up but this is the best release so far by the Finnish folk metal band in my view.

      The album starts off with a highly enjoyable catchy track called "Let's Drink", one the Irish would certainly be fond of as drinking and folk music are combined to create a track which sounds like a lively pub in a bygone era.

      The band then continue in rich form of writing decent songs about nature, their title-track which translates to resinous stump is awesomely catchy even though I have absolutely no idea what they are on about and am not convinced I would if I sought out a translation for the lyrics.

      The music has a wonderful melody to it throughout, it beats their other work hands down and I struggle to see them reaching the dizzy heights of this album again - if they do, the album will have to be a true masterpiece as this a classic fusion of folk and metal. It's hard to pick a favourite track, as this album is near faultless, as mentioned before I like the first two tracks a lot and for a bit of variation we could throw in the raw shantyish Misty Fields which makes superb use of violins and the more melodical Running With Wolves.
