Staff review by

Kalevala is a total discovery for me and a really nice surprise. This Russian Folk band only releases its second album this year but already shows that they have a really strong experience and capacity to play good music. Don't expect anything dark here, The Cuckoo's Children is just a jovial Folk Metal album which uses Russian traditional music to create addictive super positive music. With this album, ike with Korpiklaani you'll also have a good excuse to drink and party with Kalevala now!
