When I think of pirate metal Running Wild's enjoyable tune "Under Jolly Roger", always comes to mind. Well pirate metal fans rejoice fer the Scottish band Alestorm's ship has sailed once again, fighting off their many foes to bring ye another slab of catchy metal.
Alestorm's debut Captain Morgan's Revenge was a fun CD, there were mixed opinions, but I found it an entertaining album taken for what it was- after all how serious can ye take songs like "Wenches and Mead"? Many must have agreed fer Alestorm are back with another one, brimming with all things pirate.
There was certainly some solid musicianship on their debut, as Alestorm's members could handle many styles without much trouble, but fear not fer these lively lads have stuck with pirate metal. Opening with "The Quest" a fine speedster about their never ending quest, "Leviathon" is the tale of a rather nasty and large beast, and the lads are out to bring backs its head. There are many yarns for ye to enjoy on Black Sails At Midnight, there's even a darn fine instrumental "No Quarter" which will soon have ye sporting a patch and dancing the jig.
If Captain Morgan's Revenge didn't tickle your fancy, then nor will this probably, but fer those other brave souls, ye shall find Black Sails At Midnight has ten rollicking metal tracks, this creative pirate metal rocks hard me hearties.
