With 14 tracks and a total running time of over 71 minutes, »Kulkija« is the group’s longest album to date. Working with producer Janne Saksa for the first time, the album was recorded at Petrax Studio (Hollola, FIN) and mixed at Sound Supreme Studios (Hämeenlinna, FIN). Mastering duties were handled by renowned engineer Svante Forsbäck (RAMMSTEIN a.o.).
The cover was designed by Jan Yrlund (BATTLE BEASTMANOWAR etc.), who has already created several artworks for previous albums and singles for the band.

Founding member Jonne commented:
“We’ve never been as satisfied with a final result as we are with »Kulkija«. We tried to keep it very natural. Like the wanderer, this album is a journey, one that makes you feel good.”

Sami added:
“»Kulkija« isn’t just a collection of songs, it’s a “real” album with a unique atmosphere guiding the listeners through a long journey. All songs were well prepared in advance and nothing needed to be arranged in the studio. Tuomas [fiddle] & I had lots of space to develop and play the folk arrangements.”
