Alcatraz has just added 14 new names to their bill, check them out here!

After a quite strong month with many releases by big names, it seems like February is more dedicated to the underground!

Album Reviews

Crusade of Bards create this mix of power metal, symphonic metal, folk touches, and even gothic and pagan touches. It’s all there, and it all blends in beautifully together.

With this album I found myself distracted. I like the songs. They definitely scream party but they lack the power of pirate metal. It is still Alestorm, but not as loud and rough as we are used to.

The ship has docked and Alestorm has returned! So fill your tankards and tag along for some mighty pirate adventures, for there is no grave but the sea!

Interviews

We sat down with the pirate misfits from Down Under, Lagerstein, at Sabaton Open Air to talk about drinking, touring, Lagerfest and more!

Festival Reports

Photo Reports

Skálmöld + Alestorm = Skálstorm. Throw on top of that the cowboys of Bootyard Bandits and it results in one hell of a party night!

We knew we couldn’t miss this – sold out – Pirate Party!

Gig Reports

Cowboys, vikings and pirates: a night any geek/kid would drool over came to live! Alestorm, Skálmöld and Bootyard Bandits blew the roof off Nosturi!

Lists
