'Pirate metal' ranks somewhere alongside The BNP and Lee Evans' career on my list of things I wish I could set on fire.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Alestorm were fun for a while... then I realised the music was terrible apart from one song off the first album.

Swashbuckle are better cuz it just sounds like thrash with pirate lyrics.

Ah, I like Alestorm. I mean, they're like one of those bands like Dethklok for me, just fun to listen to. Plus, the riff to Heavy Metal Pirates is amazing, you cannot deny.

It's not. But theres few comics i really cannot stand, him and Jason Manford are two of them. Or any other comic who tries to play the "local" bit and can't get it right. Say what you like about Peter Kay, but he's bob on with all that.
#11
I dont like his stuff, but he does it well. Sold out 13 months before his show over here!

Stewart Lee beats all...also we are slightly off-topic

Alestorm have never been good (in hindsight, (as I'm sure andy will rub my past fanboyness in my face)). Battleheart was where it was at.

Though I am curious to hear their take on Barett's Privateers, as I do quite like that song, or shanty I suppose you might call it.

Based upon a drunken conversation I once had with the singer/keytuarist, every note he plays under the Alestorm banner chips away a tiny bit of his soul.

Poor lad. Once the mortgage is paid he'll hopefully quit the band. A necessary evil! Or lack thereof.

any luck with the Hellfest ticket? Id say bump your ad on MI, there's people looking for them left right and centre.

I'm just waiting on the first guy who got in contact with me about it to confirm that he can get it off work then I'm sorted, but if not there's hunners of people that've contacted me, as soon as it was announced as sold-out I got a proper flood of e-mails.

"Buckfast Powersmash" sounds more like a ned's finishing move than a pirate-themed metal song. But whatever. Stupid band, hasn't been funny for years now...

You mean angsty teenagers?

It bewilders me beyond reason when someone claims a band such as Alestorm to be awful, and then these same people listen to Burzum or something...

Just saying, Burzum is pretty shit tier, and Varg is probably one of the stupidest ****heads to exist in music.

Alestorm isn't a band to take seriously, nor is it a comedy band like Dethklok, they're basically Power Metal with an even sillier theme.

Most ridiculous thing I have read all month. You have probably never even listened to a Burzum album.

Saw these guys live.

Was at the Jumping Turtle before they shut down. They always gave the bands free drinks.

Free drinks are brought up to Alestorm during their setlist.

Each member takes a sip and makes the same face a teenager makes when he first takes whiskey and hates it but tries to act cool in front of the older girls.

They hand out the full glasses to the crowd, unable to finish the shot.

I spat on the keytarist boots at every available chance.

That was what made me lol the most. The reason people would listen to Burzum over Alestorm is because well you, it's actually quality music and not a gimmick band. And that just hurts Alestorm even more because a bunch of "angsty teenagers" can make far superior and meaningful music then they can. Though i'm sure it's just a money grabbing scheme/way to get drunk and paid anyways.

But yeah Lee Evans as a Centaur was messed up, Centaurs are not supposed to be that obnoxious.
