Korpiklaani releases new song and video and -surprise! - booze is involved.

Finnish folk-metal masters Korpiklaani posted the video for their new song "Tequila" on their facebook page today!  Yes!  Having already written songs about beer, vodka, and happy little boozers, it was clearly time for a tequila-themed tune.  I'm waiting for the song about whiskey, but I'm not sure whiskey is big in Finland.  Then again, I didn't think tequila was either.

Here's the video:

The song is sung in Finnish, though in the end lead singer Jonne Järvelä is obviously just yelling out the names of Central and South American countries followed by "Tequila!"  It's a fun tune, and I'm sure many Finns will be glad to have yet another drinking song from Korpiklaani to make it through the long and cold winters up there.  What did you think of it?  I dig the drum solos, they did a good job of copying the Latin American drum style, even though there couldn't be a larger cultural gap than that between Finland and South America. 

I'll bet they'll be playing this one on the cruise ship for 70,000 Tons of Metal in two weeks, should go over well.
