ALESTORM / Black Sails at Midnight (2009)
Yaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr! Your timbers’ll be shivered after letting Alestorm into your CD player. It’s (comedy?) folk pirate metal from the deepest dank depths of Scotland. It sounds exactly like you'd imagine it would: heavy metal pirate music.
With songs about drinking, sailing, wenching and generally swashing and buckling they are a guaranteed good time at parties. The more alcohol you consume the more their brand of heavy shanty begins to make sense.
Songs of Note: Keelhauled; That Famous Ol' Spiced
