The Scottish buccaneers stand ready to capture the wealth of the Seven Seas by offering a treasure chest of sweeping Scottish Pirate Metal worthy of any loot-loving corsair. Irresistible growling choruses from the port side and lively keyboard melodies and heavy metal riffs from the starboard side form the basis of this highly explosive rum-induced metal mix. The catchy tales of life on the high seas, including "Keelhauled" or "The Quest", use authentic instruments (violin, horns) to give these maritime jewels their final polish. Producer Lasse Lamert (LSD Studio) has given "Black Sails at Midnight" a unique and powerful sound, which earned him many a wench and much wealth from Captain Morgan's personal stash, while James Murphy, known for his outstanding work with Death and Obituary, took over the mastering responsibilities. Alestorm have hoisted the black sails...Let the raids begin!

Still in the style of their previous album, both lyrically and musically, Alestorm give us more pirate tales about battles, looting, sea monsters, keelhauling(a rather unpleasant punishment for traitorous and/or mutinous pirates), and just how friggin' fun it is to be a pirate. Musically it will come as no surprise to power metal fans and fans of their first album. It's a tasty slab of folk/thrash/power metal that cuts like Bartholomew Roberts' cutlass. As before, both accordion and keyboards are featured heavily. The accordion sound tends to separate Alestorm a bit from the power metal pack. However, Alestorm do allow themselves to have a bit more fun here with a few uppity tunes that feature "Yo-Ho-Ho" chant-like piratey vocals. I will admit that there are one or two tracks that didn't really do it for me, but not every album can be perfect, ya know?
I really hope that Alestorm don't swallow the anchor any time soon coz I really dig what these guys do. Hopefully we'll be hearing more from these buccaneers in the near future. Well worth the booty.
