Kick ass scottish folk metal/pirate metal band, formed in 2004 with the name Battleheart, then changed the name to Alestorm when they got signed by Napalm Records in 2007.
One of the most original bands in years, their music has a pirate theme.
Their most popular songs are "Wenches and Mead (aka hoes and wine)" ; "Captain Morgan´s Revenge" ; "Heavy Metal Pirates" ; "Kheelhauled" and "Wolves Of The Sea".
"At sunrise we'll all dance the hempen jig
So raise up your pint of rum and take another swig
The curse of Captain Morgan has led us to this fate
So have no fear, and don't look back, the afterlife awaits"
- Captain Morgan´s Revenge by Alestorm
True Fucking Scottish Pirate Metal
Alestorm are pure dos
Biggest waste of fucking time scotland has ever experienced! Scottish + Pirate + Metal, does NOT go. PLEASE REALISE THIS
" i need a name for my ridiculous, stupid, rubbish band, with a singer who cant sing, and a host of stupid pirate melodies so i can sell out to a niche market "
" Hmm, how about beer rain, or Alestorm "
" BINGO! "
