Pure (pirates) Gold

Buy this album now..... Great, fun, unpretencious metal.
It reminds me of a cross between the Pistols 'Friggin on the Rigging' and recent albums by italys' Rhapsody.
Its refreshing to listen to band that doesn't take it all too seriously as many metal bands do, getting caught up in the whole "i'm a metal god" crap.....
I suppose you could say they are the top (only) pirate metal band !!
PIRATE METAL IS THE FUTURE ! YAAAARGH

"Pirate Metal at it's very Best"
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 07/02/2008 02:06:07
I stumbled across this Band and Album while searching for something new to purchase and listen to, as a massive fan of Pirate Metal i was very excited to have read a rave review in a very well known Hard Rock/Metal magazine comparing Alestorm to pirate metal Bands the likes of the brilliant Running Wild,Turisas and Flogging Molly which is all i needed to know and made up my mind at an instant as to purchase the new Alestorm CD Album "Captain Morgan's Revenge".
As a huge fan of Running Wild from way back in the late 70s, i was pretty shocked but ecstatic when i first put the needle to the groove and Alestorm came blasting out of my speakers with swords at the ready and all cannons firing.
I could not believe that Alestorm are actually one of our very own British Hard Rock/Metal Band's hailing from Perth in Scotland, the album consists of Ten solidly crafted hard rock/metal Anthems that ebb and flow from album opener "Over The Sea's" to the closing track "Flower Of Scotland" all very much in the same vein as Running Wild and Turisas at their very-very best.
Alestorm are going to be absolutely huge, Pirate Metal just does not get any better than this. 10/10
Buy!!, Buy!!, Buy!! Buy!!, Buy!!, Buy!! Buy!!, Buy!!, Buy!!

To start things off ive been a fan of the band for a very long time, since the days they were called Battleheart before they signed to Napalm Records. I Loved the first two Self-released E.P's by the band and really happy the decided to re-record some of the tracks off it as they're are brilliant songs. The new songs are a great addition especially Title track Captain Morgan's Revenge. The Weakest Track on the album being Flower of Scotland and Of Treasure but still both good tracks.
I recommend this album to any fan of bands such as :-
BUY THIS ALBUM.
