Living as we do in the part of London known as Surrey, we see quite a few posters around for Twickenham's Airhammer. We hadn't quite got around to catching their latest release: Sword Of Fire but there was a nice write up in the NME the last time we read it. So when an email arrived saying they were recording the Korean World Cup Anthem, we had to investigate.

Korea was originally intended to be part of a local charity's attempts to raise funding for under-priveledged areas of Britain by recording a song for each of the nations competing. Only by British bands. As it happens, the project is currently on hold but Airhammer are striking out by making their version of the Korean Anthem available to the world in an attempt to relieve us all from a deadly summer of 3 Lions In Your Vindaloo. Should the song ever be officially released then all proceeds will go to the charity.

It's a wonderful piece of rocking cod-operatic terrace chanting, repleat with trumpets and fat ladies shouting. Freddie Mercury would have been proud. And we have it for you to listen to here.

Should you wish to sing along the words go like this:

Korea Korea

In Germany our flags will be flying high

Korea Korea

Our brave footballers do or die

Korea Korea

The strength of a lions pride

Korea Korea

A sea with the strongest tide.

Sacred dragon rising, Sacred dragon rising

Eleven comets burning very bright

Sacred dragon rising, Sacred dragon rising

Eleven football players in full fight.

Korea Korea

Hearts like the oceans deep

Korea Korea

With joy we laugh and never weep

Korea Korea

World champion's we'll soon be

Korea Korea

Asia stronger than a tsunami

Korea Korea

Sacred spirit rising up

Korea Korea

We'll win footballs golden cup

Love football x8

Football is coming to Dutch land in June x2

We hope to bring you a little more from Airhammer in the near future.

Er, shouldn't that be Deutschland?

It should, but there was a typo in the original text which messed up the translation. At least that's our story and we're sticking to it.
