After signing to Napalm Records in 2007, their debut album Captain Morgan's Revenge, was released on 25 January 2008. Black Sails at Midnight, the band's second album, was released on 27 May 2009.

The band has also released one live album and five EPs.

History[edit]

Battleheart and origins (2004–2007)[edit]

The band was founded in 2004 in Perth, Scotland as Battleheart, a studio project by Christopher Bowes and Gavin Harper.[1][2][3] Originally intended as a standard power metal band, the success of song "Heavy Metal Pirates" convinced the band to permanently adopt a pirate theme and incorporate folk metal elements into their music.[1][2] Gavin and Christopher recorded & released two independent demos in 2006,[2] which were received well by the local metal community.[4] The band began to perform live in 2006, with a lineup consisting of Bowes (vocals and keytar), Harper (guitars), Dani Evans (bass) and Doug Swierczek (drums).[1][2] Doug Swierczek eventually left the band later that year and was replaced by Ian Wilson.[1][2] After a period of inactivity, in late 2007 Battleheart sent their demos to Napalm Records, and the band was promptly offered a record deal.[1][2]

Alestorm (2007–present)[edit]

After being signed by Napalm Records, the band changed their name from Battleheart to Alestorm.[1] Their debut studio album, Captain Morgan's Revenge, was released in early 2008.[1][5][6][7][8] The album featured the drummer of the band Incubator, Migo Wagner as the session drummer.[1] The album was also produced by Incubator guitarist Lasse Lammert.[1]

In April 2008, the band released the single "Heavy Metal Pirates".[1] Drummer Ian Wilson left in June 2008 and later rejoined in August of the same year.[1] By September 2008, original guitarist Gavin Harper had left the band.[1][9] Tim Shaw was Harper's replacement, but after a brief period of touring, was fired from the band.[1][10][11] To fill the guitarist position, Dani Evans switched instruments from bass to guitar, and Gareth Murdock of Waylander joined as the replacement bassist.[12][13] The band's second studio album Black Sails at Midnight was released in May 2009.[2][14][15] The album peaked at #60 on the GfK Entertainment charts.[16] In March 2010, Ian Wilson left the band and was replaced with a new drummer named Peter Alcorn.[17][18][19][20] Alestorm's third album, Back Through Time, was Alcorn's first appearance on an Alestorm album.[2][21][18][19][20] Alestorm went on a Back Through Time World Tour starting in Australia and New Zealand.[22][23] The album reached #42 on the German Albums Chart.[24][25] In October 2011, Elliot Vernon joined the band as keyboard player and performing screamed / death metal vocals.[26][27]

The band released their fourth record entitled "Sunset on the Golden Age" on 1 August 2014,[2][28][29] reaching the #1 position in the UK Rock Chart.[30]

Dani Evans retired from the band in April 2015,[31] and was replaced by Hungarian guitarist Máté Bodor of the band Wisdom, who is also a part of Leander Kills.[2][32]

Alestorm in 2017

In October 2016, Christopher Bowes announced during a concert on the Super Smashed Turbo Tour that the band planned to begin recording a fifth studio album in January 2017.[citation needed] The fifth record, entitled "No Grave But the Sea", was released on 26 May 2017.[33][34] The album peaked at #1 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers Albums chart.[35]

On 8 January 2020, the band announced the title of their sixth studio album, "Curse of the Crystal Coconut".[36][37][38] This was released on 29 May 2020.[37][38] On 30 April, the band released an EP titled, "The Treasure Chest EP".[39] Prior to the album's release, Alestorm released the singles "Treasure Chest Party Quest" on 2 April 2020, "Tortuga" (feat. Captain Yarrface of Rumahoy) on 23 April 2020, and "Fannybaws" on 14 May 2020.[37][40][41] The fourth single for the album titled, "Pirate Metal Drinking Crew" was released on 29 May 2020.[42] The album peaked at #68 on the Official Albums Chart.[43] A deluxe version of the album includes the normal track listing, along with what is referred to as "16th Century Version" editions of each track was released.[44] On 6 August, The Wooden Box was released and it included two bonus tracks on a 7-inch Single which are "Big Ship Little Ship" and "Bassline Junkie".[45][46]

Musical style[edit]

Alestorm is generally classified as pirate metal, folk metal, power metal, heavy metal, hard rock, folk, and thrash metal.[note 1] The band refer to themselves as "True Scottish Pirate Metal"[1][52][55] and are identifiable by the pirate-themed lyrics in their songs.[2][48] Alestorm's music utilizes the upbeat epic style of Scottish folk metal and power metal.[48] Album recordings feature heavy use of real trumpets, trombones, accordions synths, fiddle and tin whistle, violins, vibraslaps, brass, keytars, and singalong choruses to convey a pirate sea shanty feel.[2][48][34][56] Alestorm's lyrical themes focus on pirates themes including, sailing, pillaging, and drinking.[48]

They have also been known to experiment with different metal genres, going from songs that are predominantly thrash metal ("Black Sails at Midnight") to a switch to a black metal sonority mid-song ("Death Throes of the Terrorsquid").[57] The band's later albums have begun to incorporate more screamed vocals by keyboard player Elliot Vernon, adding hints of metalcore ("Magnetic North") and death metal ("1741 – The Battle of Cartagena") to the band's sound.[47]
