Avast, ye landlubbers! From the deepest darkest depths of the Caribbean comes ALESTORM, a drunken band of pirates on an epic quest to drink your beer, steal your rum, and be the greatest damn band that ever did sail the seven seas!
Describing their style as "True Scottish Pirate Metal", Alestorm plays an infectious blend of modern folk and power metal with a unique piratical twist. After forming in 2006 and rapidly gaining a cult following in their local scene, the band signed to Austria's Napalm Records, and released four groundbreaking albums; "Captain Morgan's Revenge" (2008), "Black Sails at Midnight" (2009), "Back Through Time" (2011), and now their latest album "Sunset on the Golden Age" (2014). Prepare to have your mind blown with some of the catchiest Pirate Metal anthems you've ever heard, with tales of mythological creatures, epic battles, and swashbuckling action that'll make you want to raise up a pint of rum and sing your heart out.
Alestorm are coming to kick ass and chew gum. And they're all out of gum.
"Who is Nekrogoblikon? Where did they come from? What is goblin metal? Why write songs about goblins? When will I stop feeling so alone?" The answer to all of your questions is it really doesn't matter. What you should instead be concerned with is the fact that your life is probably not nearly as satisfying as it could be, and Nekrogoblikon is here to fix that. Their new album Heavy Meta has not only been in the works for the last 49 years, but also is the first album in history to receive three Grammys (and even one Oscar) without ever having been completed or released. In 1987, psychiatrists worldwide began prescribing audio snippets of the in-progress album to patients in lieu of antidepressants, and by 2001 the album had gone "Secret Platinum." However, it wasn't until now that Nekrogoblikon felt that the general masses would be able to handle the concentrated dose of pure joy that is Heavy Meta. The album arrives on June 2nd, 2015, and is promised by the band to be both "really, really good" and "something people will want to buy...or torrent."
ABOUT AETHER REALM--
Æther Realm formed in June, 2010, consisting of Vincent Jones (Bass/Vocals/Synths), Heinrich Arnold (Guitar), and Tyler Gresham (Drums). The first year of their existence was spent writing music, playing local shows, and generally creating the foundation that the band would be built upon. In 2011, Jack RodriguezDougherty joined the group on guitar, and their lineup was solidified.
In July of 2011, the band entered The Basement Studios with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Human Abstract, Wretched) and recorded their first twosong demo, Odin Will Provide. The demo was released in September of the same year.
The band began recording their first full length in January 2012, and released the first single, Swampwitch, from the album in May of the same year. Their first tour followed, hitting the majority of the east coast in June. Their debut full length, One Chosen by the Gods, was released in January of 2013, and was accompanied by another short promotional tour.
In May 2013, Æther Realm toured the East Coast and Midwest with Wilderun, another folk metal band from the US. The band has since been playing regional shows and writing new material. The first single, entitled The Magician, from the band's untitled sophomore album.
