Alestorm is a Scottish band that fits into a rather unique category, Pirate Metal. Why? Because it's heavy metal, and they sing almost exclusively about pirates. They are a rather new band, with only two albums out, the first, Captain Morgan's Revenge, is the one I own. They don't take themselves too seriously, and that I think is the reason it succeeds. It's just a fun album. I was on the fence about purchasing it for awhile, remember kids piracy is a crime, but I'm glad I did.
Rumor has it a third album is on it's way so start getting excited. I'm gonna shoot for an update every day this week, so wish me luck. Happy Valentine's Day.
