Massacre Records is proud to announce the signing of JONNE

Metalnews Power of


JONNE was formed by Jonne Järvelä of Korpiklaani as a solo project which soon morphed and developed into a full band.

Wanting to do something that was musically different and away from his main band, JONNE is pure shamanistic folk music.

Jonne comments:
"An idea about the solo album struck me almost two years ago, when the early sketches of the songs begun to take shape. I immediately realized that the material wasn't going to match Korpiklaani's style. Those pieces had firmly grown on me and I wanted to release them under my own name.”

From starting out as a solo idea, it fast grew into a real band, accompanied by 9 other musicians from the Finnish folk & metal music scene, featuring members of Amorphis, Shape Of Despair, Wabanag and Oceanwake.

JONNE's s/t album is set to be released on July 24, 2015 via Massacre Records!
