Product Description

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!

Alestorm has done it's again. Black Sails At Midnight is not as good as Captain Morgan's Revenge, but it's still very good. Keelhauled send chills down my spine. The song No Quarter is a classic Pirates of the Caribbean cover. Probably most hilarious metal band around.

Alestorms second album is, once again, fun to listen too. Alestorm keeps delivering their own sound and I like it. A should buy for people who like metal not to sound like Maiden

5.0 out of 5 stars Keelhauling Your Ship: Alestorm Takes Pirate Metal Up a Notch June 12 2009
By SillyMoose - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the production and package that Alestorm was waiting for. Having become something of a cult band, they're now faced with proving whether or not they can make a run of this thing rather than a novelty. And, in my opinion, they've done it; this cd solidifies all things pirate metal. They've ratcheted things up a bit on the metal side of things. "The Quest," "Leviathan," "That Famous Ol' Spiced," "Black Sails at Midnight," and "Chronicles of Vengeance" are all solid metal tunes. There is a much sharper hard rock edge to all of this than on the two previous collections. The songwriting is better, and the band has found newer ways to complement Bowes's keyboard work; in "The Quest," for instance, the song starts with awesome guitar riff work and then the keyboards highlight the scale progression to great effect; and then they switch, with the guitar work returning the keyboard's call. "Keelhauled," "No Quarter," and "Pirate Song" bring back a lot of the theatricality that got them noticed in the first place. But there's no better opening to a song as of this writing than the nostalgic opening of "Keelhauled"; so the theatricality is balanced with both great musicianship and metal elements. And where before you had to buy into the humor of this band to allow yourself to enjoy them, this cd is keeping the fun but adding some seriousness and maturity to the whole show. "To The End of Our Days" is a philosophical song about the pirate life and death. And if there's one guy who's making a name for himself through this whole project, it's Christopher Bowes. His musicianship with a guitar-strapped keyboard is amazing. And the production on this cd is finally excellent. That helps the band quite a bit. I was surprised that the band re-recorded two songs, "Leviathan" and "Wolves of the Sea." I'm assuming it was because of the better production and the fact that there are a lot of fans newly discovering Alestorm what with large metal festival appearances (Wacken, Bloodstock, etc.) and they wanted to give those newer fans a chance to hear two classics (it's still weird; the ep they originally appeared on is hard to find, but they`ve all been added to bonus edition of Captain Morgan's Revenge that is not hard to find). The dvd in the limited edition is priceless. You get to see these guys put on a show. There's a lot of pirate banter among the group and the crowd (a lot of mosh pitting for a pirate band, I thought; these guys get mosh pits like the big bands, somehow), but the thing that holds it together is their musicianship. Just when you think it's all "Arrrrr" call-back games between the group and audience, Christopher Bowes rips through keyboard solos like no one I've heard since Dennis DeYoung (and nobody I've heard in metal); Ian Wilson and Gareth Murdock do a bass-drum solo that's awesome. Dani Evans, cool in his dreadlocks, does the job on the guitar. I've heard better, but he's better than I first gave him credit for just listening to the cds; he comes across better live. As to packaging, we've gone from corny on the first two cds to, finally, a very cool cover. The front of the cd package is cool, but the same Captain Morgan picture is found in its full color glory on the front of the insert to much greater effect. Tired of seeing bands simply repeat pictures throughout an insert, the interior illustrations of various characters in new stances was refreshing. If you're a fan, you'll be quite pleased with this (though curious about the re-recordings); if you're new, I'll just say this is the most unique and trailblazing metal out there. It stands up folks, even with the yo-ho-hos and talk of making ba**ards and landlubbers walking the plank. Get this limited edition while you have a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shiver Me Timbers! Alestorm's Back On Deck!! June 7 2009
By Stanley Runk - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Those Scottish sea dogs return with their second full length album, and are still flying the metal Jolly Roger.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Metal Pirates Return! July 8 2009
By M. Winn - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Scotland's Alestorm are back with their second full-length and like the first one, it's great! The folksy elements blend right in with straight-on metal and Christopher Bowes sings just like a pirate! ARRR! If you bought the Leviathan EP, you have a taste of this album as the songs Leviathan and Wolves of the Sea are here. Keelhauled and That Famous Ol' Spiced will have you singing pirate anthems in no time. Alestorm just did a video for Keelhauled too! The DVD is also worth it. You can see Alestorm perform most of their first album Captain Morgan's Revenge! A purchase doesn't get any better than this! If you like Manowar, the best elements of Skyclad and the pirate backdrop, get this!
