Finnish Folk Metal Superstars Korpiklaani recently kicked off 2019 with a bunch of successful Finnish shows. Next week, the group will embark on their highly anticipated European run with Turisas and Trollfest.
What better way to celebrate this tour than by revealing a brand new song? There’s none, that’s why Korpiklaani are happy to present a lyric video for “Øl Øl”, which features their longtime tour mates Trollfest. The track is taken from the band’s “Kulkija (Tour Edition)”, which is out now.
Korpiklaani’s Jonne states:
Beer, sax & violins! What more do we need to say? We hope you enjoy this as much as we did with friends we love to drink and tour with.
We got super excited when one of our alltime favourite bands asked us to do a Trollfest version of this classic tune! Today we got to show the world the result. Grab a beer and enjoy “Øl Øl”. Much love from Trollkaani / Korpifest.
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, Finland) and mixed at Sound Supreme Studios (Hämeenlinna, Finland). Mastering duties were handled by renowned engineer Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein etc.). The cover was designed by Jan Yrlund (Battle Beast, Manowar etc.), who has already created several artworks for previous albums and singles for the band.
