Korpiklaani release “Verikoira” drum playthrough video

Barely three weeks after the release of their acclaimed 11th studio album ‘Jylhä,’ Finnish folk metal Superstars Korpiklaani prove they still have a few tricks up their sleeves to keep their fans entertained while they can’t go to shows.

As of today, you can watch drummer Samuli Mikkonen rip through the album opening track Verikoira in an entertaining drum playthrough video featuring multiple camera angles.

You can watch the clip here:

The composition of Verikoirawhat kind of unorthodox. Samuli wrote the drum arrangements on his own first and after the drums were recorded they started to make the music on top of it with Jonne. The main idea was to make a strong opening track full of drums such as JUDAS PRIEST had on their PAINKILLER album. This is what they came up with.
