Metal Mondays - Taking a turn for the piratey

It is INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE day, and as such I've gone looking for something appropriately swashbuckling to lace in with todays metal theme. And I sucked, because Luke found todays focus. Meet Alestorm.

Clips and hilarity after the break:

I was initially dubious about the "metal-ness" of the band - they're pretty jaunty and there IS a keytar and a violinning midget (midget sadly is not a permanent fixture) but they're signed to Napalm Records, which justifies the metal tag in my mind. And thank god for that, because I want and need to show you this.

It keeps getting better.  I am completely in love.

And to keep the rolling piratey goodness going - this is Keelhauled.

Can I even make fun of these? Good jeebus. There's just so much to love. I'd also highly suggest a commemorative listening to You Are A Pirate, in honour of this special day. Captain Feathersword needs to take some damn notes.

  1. I love Alestorm. They came to the Trocadero in Philly and I was planning on going for the longest time but last minute realized it was a sunday. Damn calendars.
