Today (7th) marks international beer day! In celebration for delicious brews from across the globe, Korpiklaani has unveiled the last version of “Beer Beer,” with the track “Mellanöl,” featuring Viking Danielson singing in Swedish.
The group commented:
“We approached many bands in Sweden to create the Swedish version for ‘Beer Beer’ without success. Some simply did not want to, one did not like the idea of singing in native Swedish tongue, some feared that their stainless image would be rotten if they get involved with something like a drinking song. Had Sweden forsaken us? Luckily the word went around and we had a hint about a lesser-known band from a mystical Öland Island. So here is Viking Danielson from Svarta ljuset (Västerås tjejerna, smutsigt mamma, ta kuken I munnen Konungen) singing his heart out about Mellanöl, the common Swedish beer with disturbingly low alcohol level.”
