I mean, its definitely his voice, but the music sounds nothing like Korpiklaani… almost. And it is impossible to render on a written review all the shades of such a brilliant and atmospheric record: I finally obtained a copy and all I can report is good news. In conclusion, Idja is as strange and surprising as it is addictive and entertaining. Each person, each animal, each tree, each rock has its own specific joik in Lapland, and they are all equally revered as parts of the same whole.

The major drawback from this album is definately, some very pop-like choruses and vocal lines which might generate some resistance on most metal fans.

It’s a shame an album like this will never gain much popularity due to it’s very odd nature and lack of common language use. Jonne’s vocals are not only amazing and passionate but he quite confindently shows the power of yoik. I have been a big fan of Korpiklaani for quite some months now, and I always knew that Jonne had done a project before called Shaman, though I never quite came around to finding it. I for one wish I could get lyrical translations but have had no luck yet.
Helluva of an album. The music is basically a true mixture of heavy metal and Finnish folk music.
Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. The emotion put into it, the textures, the melodies, the rhythms, it all just feels korpiklaan organic.

Still, if you are a folk metal fan with an open mind, fear not to listen to Idja, because this album is an amazing metal tribute to the reindeer herders of the north.

Every song is charged with heaviness and emotion and ambience.
