Pirate Metal, Yes It Is Real
I'll admit I'm into a lot of strange music not surprising since I'm a huge fan of Mike Patton. It was in a way because of him I found out about Pirate Metal.
They dress and act like pirates and all their songs have a pirate theme. If one pirate band wasn't enough there seems to be a few.
I have heard many different artist do Viking metal and of course Power metal that features medieval themes has been around forever. Metal music featuring pirates that is new to me.
I guess if you enjoy being a pirate this music is for you. I give them props for rocking out with a keytar while wearing the puffy shirts.
Out of the songs i found featuring Alestorm this is probably my favorite.
