Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani are currently hopping from festival stage to festival stage (next stop: MetalDays in Tolmin, Slovenia) in support of their current studio album, Kulkija (released on September 7th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast). Today, the group has unleashed another version of their much-loved hit "Beer Beer", taken from the aforementioned album's tour edition; this time in Croatian, entitled "Pivo Pivo" and graced by a guest vocal appearance of former Eluveitie violinist Meri Tadic (Irij).
Meri states: "During my time with Eluveitie, I actually participated in numerous and unforgettable 'beer adventures' with the guys in Korpiklaani and as I do like beer, this seemed like a perfect opportunity to pay my dues and have some more fun."
Grab a pint and enjoy the track below.
Korpiklaani previously released a German version of the song featuring Tankard singer Gerre. A message from the band follows:
"It is so awesome to have Gerre from Tankard do the German version of 'Beer Beer'. A true thrash metal legend and beer lover!"
Gerre stated: "I remember when we toured with Korpiklaani across Finland in 2009, where we had tons of fun! I also had a lot of fun while writing German lyrics for the band's iconic song and recording it with our sound engineer Gerd Lücking (drummer of Holy Moses). I hope that I'll meet the guys in Korpiklaani again soon, and we can have a few beers once again."
The tracks are taken from the Kulkija (Tour Edition), which is out now. Order here.
