Pirate Metal

I am sad to say I dropped the ball the other day by not celebrating 'Talk Like A Pirate' day, a heinous oversight as Bleaseworld is based in the home port of no less a piratical celebrity than Blackbeard himself.

By way of amends and in celebration of all things piratical, here is a video of the 'True Scottish Pirate Metal' band Alestorm playing their song 'Keelhauled'.

Alestorm are a lot of fun and have released two albums, Captain Morgan's Revenge and Black Sails At Midnight, that are ideal background music for when you are counting your pieces of eight. Surely any band that writes lyrics such as "With the power of ale, he could not fail!" deserve wider recognition?


  1. Aye could not agree more matey - with plenty of beer, I have nothing to fear!

  2. "A wench by my side and a jug of mead, these are the things that I most need!"

    hehe, love it mate - thanks for the recommendation!

  3. aye, I saw them during the summer and I'm seeing them again soon mate! They are a lot of fun.
    They were seen chasing sheep up a hill, swigging whisky with members of 'The Rotted' somewhere in Prestatyn in North Wales!
