Alestorm

Originally known as Battleheart, Alestorm, the purveyors of the relatively unexplored musical territory known as "pirate metal," formed in their original (pre-nautical) phase in 2004. As Battleheart, the group was initially a duo formed by Gavin Harper (guitar) and Christopher Bowes (vocals and keyboards), and recorded its first EP (a self-titled affair) in 2006. Over the course of the next year, feeling the need to bring their sound to the people of Scotland, Battleheart expanded to a four-piece with the addition of bassist Dani Evans and drummer Doug Swierczek. The new crew recorded another EP soon after, entitled Terror on the High Seas, and the buzz helped land a song from the release on Metal Hammer magazine's Battle Metal V compilation. Later that year, in 2007, the bandmembers -- after signing with Napalm Records -- decided to change their name to further the cause of their unique brand of metal, settling on Alestorm. Eventually, the lineup settled a bit more, with Ian Wilson bringing stability to the drummer position, and Alestorm released their debut album, Captain Morgan's Revenge, in early 2008. The band toured the United States later that year with fellow folk-metal giants Týr and Heidevolk before releasing its second full-length, Black Sails at Midnight, in spring 2009. ~ Chris True, Rovi

Pirate songs. Well, perfect songs for Pirates of The Caribbean music videos. I like the hammering rhythm.

Don't read this because it doesn't work. You will be stabbed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the worst day of your life. However if you post this you will be burned at the stake in two days. Now if you're reading this stop. Don't post this to at least 5 stations in the next 420 minutes. When you're done go jump off a bridge. This is so scary because its fake.

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you dont post this you will be injured (you wont die) in two days. Now you started reading this dont stop. Post this on at least five other stations/son g s in the next 143 minutes. When your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary this actually works.

I approve of any metal that requires costumes.

'Skull Branded Pirates' Are great, too, as well as having a pretty solid comedy element to some of their songs. They aren't on Youtube, but just go look on google, you'll find them. I found their CD at a second-hand shop. What a find that was!
