The band describes their style as “True Scottish Pirate Metal”.
After gaining success as Battleheart (UK), the band landed a record deal with Napalm Records mid-late 2007. Due to a similarity in name with Battlelore, a band already signed with the label, they were asked to change names; as of August 8th, 2007 their name was officially changed to Alestorm.
Ian Wilson left Alestorm following the release of the debut album due to scheduling conflicts. He was replaced by Alex Tabisz, but by August that year had rejoined the band. The following month founding member Gavin Harper departed after relocating to Finland.
Thank you to who ever posted this in the MCS chat room, I’m enjoying them very much.
Gawd I love pirate metal.
