The Finnish folk-metal band Korpiklaani issued the following statement about their upcoming album “Manala” in their official Facebook page:

Finnish traditional folk metal pioneers KORPIKLAANI issue further details on their upcoming 8th studio album “Manala” that will be released via Nuclear Blast on the 3rd of August.
The cover artwork was created by Finnish artist Jan Yrlund (www.darkgrove.net) – KORPIKLAANI vocalist Jonne Järvelä states:

“On the album cover, our band mascot Vaari represents Väinämöinen, who is one of the main characters in the Finnish national epic Kalevala. As most of the lyrics on “Manala” are based on the Kalevala, Jan Yrlund decided to draw his inspiration for the cover artwork from the beautiful but yet brutal depiction of the underworld in Finnish mythology.”
