Korpituli's third album, "Pohjola", marks a significant evolution in their musical journey, delving deeper into the realm of atmospheric Nordic black metal with a fresh, folk-infused Pagan twist. Rooted in the cold, harsh landscapes of Finland, "Pohjola" reflects the sincere, straightforward character of its people, infused with a sense of warmth and passion. The album draws heavily on Finnish folklore and pagan mythology, paying homage to classic Nordic Folk / Pagan Black Metal influences such as Storm and Isengard, while also nodding to fellow Finnish bands like Moonsorrow and Finntroll.

"Pohjola" is divided into two thematic chapters: "Part I: Pohjoisen Kansan Taruja" (Tales of Our Northern People) explores mythological narratives from the perspective of the Pohjola folk, inspired by ancient Finnish poems and rhymes. This section includes tales of Pohjan Akka, the Queen of the North, and celebrates the national hero Lalli. "Part II: Suomalaista Sielunmaisemaa" (Finnish Soulscape) delves into the essence of Finnish identity, reimagining old folk songs within the melodic Nordic Pagan Black Metal context to convey themes of sorrow, stubbornness, and the sanctity of nature and sauna culture.

Crafted with deep respect for Finnish traditions and the contemporary spirit, "Pohjola" is an invitation to explore the rich tapestry of Finnish folklore and the introspective landscape of the Finnish soul, as envisioned by Korpituli.
