If there are some Running Wild songs which sound like an embryo of pirate metal, Alestorm have sent their swashbuckling child to buckaneer university and he now has a full time job. Consistency is an all too underappreciated aspect. Buckfast Powersmash for example has enough folksy accordian to blow the sawdust right out aldstorm the tavern before it thrashes right out in the chorus.

Everything to fit the concept. More serious atmospheres characterize the two remaining songs. The main reason why I gave a rating of 90 to this album is that seven songs out of ten are astonishing both lyrically and musically speaking. Musically, the band is as good as ever producing pirate themed folk metal that starts immediately with title track Back Through Time which shows off this fresh lineup's skill. Even when breaking the fourth wall to discuss alcohol, friends or critics its still under the guise of piracy and is made to be as unclear just who the true voice in Alestorm is.
A wondrous tale which closes the regular album perfectly in bombast. The songs Swashbuckled and Rumpelkombo are easily forgettable with nothing interesting in them at all. They're dominated by Bowes's keyboards and unique voice that still reminds me of Boltendahl's raw voice from Grave Digger tine, but differently from their previous two albums here.
The formulation of accessible with some occasional extreme metal elements will either take the listener on a cartoon adventure on the high seas, or tome brutally awkward enough to make him prefer a real keelhauling. Be the first to review this product.

Please, log in or register. Originally known as Battleheart, Alestorm, the purveyors of thriugh relatively unexplored musical territory known as "pirate metal," formed in their original pre-nautical phase in Not a single track on here is void of some pirate-theme. Death Throes of the Terrorsquid. Those who seem to get the most hung up on their swashbuckling, pirate themed nature must keep this mind: Any attempts to write outside the Alestorm box would no doubt be met with both the scattering of the more casual fans they have built up with their amusing antics and the ire of a label that clearly spotted a winning gimmick when they signed them up back in Regardless, the opening clutch of songs shows the band in high spirits and even gives the illusion there may be more than a aleestorm of perfunctory surprises in store.
This band was not a joke band when it started. The third time's a charm indeed! For all the doom-mongering though, just as the CD seems to be petering out it, Alestorm manage to pull it together with a pair of nice surprises at the end.
