A Blog about Norse Fantasy, Viking Adventures, and More!

Tuesday Althing: Korpiklaani

Welcome to another Tuesday Althing. Today we celebrate Cinco de Mayo — Scandinavian style!

If you didn’t know, today is also release day for Tolkien’s THE LEGEND OF SIGRUD AND GUDRUN. What a happy chance, then, that I happened upon a super-cool video of the song I wanted to serve up; the music is set against video from The Lord of the Rings movies. Dig the hobbits drinking and dancing on the table! The whole vid is genius.

Without further ado I give you the Finnish band Korpiklaani, cranking out one of the all time great drinking songs, Beer, beer!

On Thursday I’ll wrap up Tolkien month here at Storm of the North blog by posting about specific influences of Norse mythology on Tolkien’s work. Thanks for stopping by!
