I got tickets to see Korpiklaani, Einsiferum, and TrollfesT in May!
When I was in college, I was really into folk metal. Like, really into it. As an extension of this, I also got into a few troll metal bands.
I’ve always really liked Korpiklaani, but I have never actually seen them live, so I am pretty excited about this show. Shame I didn’t get around to seeing them before they had to replace Jaakko (their violinist) due to health issues.
I mean, just look at this guy in the Wooden Pints video:
I cannot stop watching that video, by-the-way. It is so… nonsensical. And bad. And for this, I love it.
My synopsis: A man hacks into a stump with a hatchet. Another man pops out of an outhouse and starts playing a violin on his hip. He then periodically teleports back and forth between the outhouse and another location where the rest of the band is, including a man wailing on a single drum with a large branch. What is happening??
