WHISTLIN’ SUOMI: Korpiklaani’s “Pilli On Pajusta Tehty” Video

Korpiklaani are the folk metal equivalent of Motorhead, having knocked out nine albums in the past 12 years that all essentially sound the same. But that’s okay! Nobody wants ambition from this stuff. They just want to be able to drink a lot of beer and dance, and that is exactly what Korpiklaani’s new video demonstrates. Well, they aren’t drinking on stage while they’re performing the song, but one can assume that alcohol happened at some point in the vicinity of this video. “Pilli On Pajusta Tehty” comes from their latest joyous outburst, Noita. Who needs complicated production values when your band is this damn much fun live?
