about

A Treasure Chest of Sweeping Scottish Pirate Metal The Scottish buccaneers stand ready to capture the wealth of the Seven Seas. "Black Sails at Midnight" offers 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 Lammert (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. The album's limited edition includes a live bonus DVD featuring the buccaneer's entire 2008 Wacken performance. Alestorm have hoisted the black sails...Let the raids begin!
