Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani released their 11th studio album Jylhä back in February 2021. During the Jylhä sessions they took the classic Anthrax banger ‘Got The Time’ (a song originally released in 1978 by British musician Joe Jackson) and converted it into a typical Korpiklaani tune called ‘Ennen’ (Before). They’ve also filmed a wild and very entertaining video, shot by Markku Kirves and starring actor Yrjänä Ermala, which is being released along with the cover song.
“This was the first time a video producer encouraged us to drink while on a video shoot and we were very happy to do as directed!” – Jonne Järvelä (Korpiklaani)
A burst of accordion, rampaging drums and the delicious crunching guitar tone from Kalle Savijärvi. You can hear the bones of the track in the thrashing riff and the wonderful drumming from Samuli Mikkonen. Järvelä’s rough partly spoken vocals sitting on top like the icing on the cake of this delightful two and a half minutes of Finnish rock fun.
