Oh wow! Back in 2008, Alestorm were mere newcomers and beginners - and yet they created a modern metal classic and a completely new subgenre. Captain Morgan`s Revenge marks the birth of Pirate Metal as we know it today and turned a couple of young Scotsmen into the hottest band the modern metal scene has to offer! Ten years later and sold-out shows all over the world, their boozy debut gets its well-deserved anniversary treatment and will be re-released on January 26th 2018 with Napalm Records!
Captain Morgan`s Revenge – 10th Anniversary Edition has received a fresh remix and remastering by original producer Lasse Lammert at his LSD studios and will be coming with a rejuvenated artwork. Alongside the 'Live At Summer Breeze' bonus disc, this re-release will be a true gem for all collectors, new fans and nostalgics alike!
The pirates about their upcoming Anniversary Edition:
"Oh wow! Can't believe it's been 10 years already since we made this record. We were all terrible musicians back then, and it was only thanks to the immense skill of our producer Lasse Lammert that we managed to salvage a passable bunch of songs. But anyway, it seems a bunch of you people seemed to like this album, so we decided to give it a bit of spit and polish for the 10th anniversary. NO, this is not one of those shitty 'brickwall' remasters that some bands do, and NO, this is not a re-recording by a bunch of disinterested and jaded old musicians. We've taken the original multitrack source material from 10 years ago (bad playing, cheap keyboards, awful vocals and everything), and just re-mixed the whole album to be punchier, tighter, more dynamic, and more sonically delightful than before. You probably won't even notice the difference! But it's there. And it'll sound awesome on vinyl, for the first time ever!"
Captain Morgan`s Revenge – 10th Anniversary Edition, coming as CD digi pack, LP gatefold and digital download, is now available for pre-order HERE!

The German pirate metal horde The Privateer, have announced their upcoming third album "The Goldsteen Lay". The album will be released on July 28, 2017 via NoiseArt Records.
The band states:
"Ahoy bloody landlubbers! Finally the work of the last few years will pay off. Our new album "The Goldsteen Lay" will be released on 28 July 2017 under the flag of NoiseArt Records!You can expect an outstanding concept-album with eleven chapters full of madness, eternal life and treasures which won’t let any privateer sleep peacefully ever again! The next weeks we will publish further details about the album!"
Recorded in the safe harbours of the Iguana Studios in March-Burchheim under the control of experienced captain Christoph Brandes who also kicked the gangway of mix & mastering, "The Goldsteen Lay" is an overwhelming adventure in terms of sound engineering as well.
The Privateer travel the seven seas since 2007 and they are looking back onto two successful albums and dozens of landing parties in their homeland as well as foreign and exotic countries. Their Heavy Folk Metal dispersed dust right from their first prey on, and they've found accommodation with the lubbers of NoiseArt Records just in time for their third album. NoiseArt can't get enough from "The Goldsteen Lay" and will on their part make sure that this adventure will be available worldwide. We have set sails already... will you join us on this epic and adventurous journey?
Necronaut (noun); derived from the Greek words nekros (νεκρός), meaning "corpse" or "dead", and nautes (ναύτης), meaning "sailor". A person who experiments with near-death experiences in order to explore the underworld.
Necronautical (adj); of or pertaining to Necronautics or Necronauts.
Necronautical (band); A cluster of musicians using the medium of extreme blackened metal in order to disconnect from reality and to espouse the thought that true freedom of the spirit is found beyond the monotony of modern human existence.
Fittingly wearing the crown of thorns as the fourth inductees to the resurrected Cacophonous coven, Misanthropic Black Metal 4-piece Necronautical blur the barriers between fantasy and reality. Voyaging the treacherous waters of the underworld, they explore notions of the afterlife with their pummelling, virtuoso musicianship. Their colossal sophomore album "The Endurance At Night" is set for release 15th July on Cacophonous, and showcases a new energy and strength for British extreme music.
"Necronautical are delighted to become part of the Cacophonous family. We are humbled to appear on the same heritage-rich label that brought the world such great and influential bands as Cradle of Filth and the legendary Bal-Sagoth, and proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers in The Infernal Sea, The King is Blind and Old Corpse Road at the forefront of UK Black Metal.
Our upcoming album 'The Endurance at Night' will leave listeners battered and raw; awestruck by the brutality and power inherent in the universe, interpreted herein as a salvo of scathing blasts, screeching melodies and churning riffs. We're very excited to show the world what we've been working on, and can't wait to showcase the new album on stage in the Autumn this year.” - Anchorite, Bass
West Coast acoustic metal pirate armada The Dead Crew Of Oddwood has just unloaded the booze-drenched cannon stench of their pillaging fourth studio recording with "Lawful Evil". A non-stop auditory rampage in the stripped-down and dirty style sans-amplification and riding high on Heavy Mahogany mastery, the unruly new album discharges fourteen debauchery-ridden rippers intoxicating the listener with more than forty-two minutes of top-shelf hard-partying action.
Witness The Dead Crew Of Oddwood in full decadence in their "Sulfur" video RIGHT HERE and endure the full attack of "Lawful Evil" HERE.
Through the support of townspeople on shores the world 'round The Dead Crew Of Oddwood self-released the putrid tunes of "Lawful Evil" under the guise of no label rules; the result is a necessary acquisition for fans of hammering brews to the Dropkick Murphys, crashing the renaissance faire, anybody who has quoted Yellowbeard, and diehards of Korpiklaani, and other seafaring acts Swashbuckle and Alestorm. "Lawful Evil" was recorded at Seahorse Sound, was mixed by Aksu Hanttu (Korpiklaani, Shade Empire) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Korpiklaani, Apocalyptica, Dragonforce, Rammstein) at Chartmakers Audio Mastering. The "Sulfur" video was directed by Michael Sasso with cinematography by Sean Fitzgerald, and editing by Casey Nimmer. The band also included several guest vocalists on the album including Brittney Slays from Unleash The Archers, Admiral Nobeard from Swashbuckle, and others. The "Lawful Evil" cover art was created by Mark Gibbons (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Warhammer, and more).
"Lawful Evil" is available direct from the band on CD HERE and digital HERE,as well through as most digital services.
The Dead Crew Of Oddwood will be performing at a renaissance faire in the Los Angeles area for the next seven consecutive weekends. The band is also travelling to a one-off gig in Chicago at the Official Ommegang Game of Thrones Beer Release Party next week. A widespread invasion of the American lands will take place as the 2016 harvest season approaches; keep watch for a scroll of ports to be raided in the months ahead.
