For those that don’t know what the Music Challenge is I will tell you. Go out and pick up an album or stream an album based solely off one of three categories…1) Album Cover, 2) Band Name or 3) Album Name. Once you have listened to one, come tell me about it. My 6th pick is Alestorm and I chose it off the cover and the band name…here are my thoughts on it…(Parental Guidance is suggested…if foul language offends you than go read another post)
All my life, I have felt that something was missing. I didn’t know what it was and have struggled with it my whole life. Well that struggle is no more. The thing that was missing from it was PIRATE HEAVY METAL!!! Heavy Metal music with a pirate theme!! How have I never thought of that before. Thank God I found Alestorm to fill that hole missing in my life all this time.
The timing couldn’t be better with the release of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie “Dead Men Tell No Tales”. Now I have a pirate movie and pirate music to go along with it! This is Alestorm’s fifth studio album and it is called ‘No Grave But the Sea’. I seriously thought this was just a novelty album, but nope…it is for real and they have now stuck with the pirate theme for 5 albums.
