Alestorm - 'Magellan's Expedition' (official video)

To lands unknown
We serve the Castillian throne
Go!

From proud Lusitanian shores
We have voyaged - on the ultimate quest
Five ships under the banner of Spain -
In the Emperor's name
On the deck of the Trinidad
Stands our captain - Fernão Magalhães
Steadfastly guiding us over
The towering waves - ya ha ha harr!

The Atlantic behind us
Many of us will not return

To lands unknown
We serve the Castillian throne
With banners unfurled,
We'll encircle the world
Our destiny written in stone
No fear of death
We'll fight to the very last breath
To sail through the strait,
I know it's my fate
To chart a new course to the West
Victoria!

Through mutinous storms we make haste
On our voyage - those traitors be damned
Patagonian giants awatch from
The shores - great legends of old
We sail through the straits
Of Tierra del Fuego - the islands of fire
An ocean of treasure awaits us
Far to the west - ya ha ha harr!

The Pacific before us
This is the point of no return

To lands unknown
We serve the Castillian throne
With banners unfurled,
We'll encircle the world
Our destiny written in stone
No fear of death
We'll fight to the very last breath
To sail through the strait,
I know it's my fate
To chart a new course to the West
Victoria!

Here we stand
At the precipice of the unknown
With the endless ocean before us
Our time has come
Our fate has been sealed
This day we will quest
Into the heart of the setting sun!

To lands unknown
We serve the Castillian throne
With banners unfurled,
We'll encircle the world
Our destiny written in stone
No fear of death
We'll fight to the very last breath
To sail through the strait,
I know it's my fate
To chart a new course to the West
Victoria!

Circumnavigandum infinita quest



Full length album νούμερο επτά για τους Alestorm. "Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum" ο τίτλος (παράφραση του "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" των Iron Maiden άραγε;) κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει τον πρώτο καλοκαιρινό μήνα.

Παρακολουθούμε το μουσικό βίντεο του εναρκτήριου τραγουδιού ("Magellan's Expedition"), για το οποίο η μπάντα μας λέει:

«“Magellan’s Expedition” - an epic quest telling the tale of Ferdinand Magellan’s historical circumnavigation of the earth in 1522. The official video was filmed on location in a castle, features tons of pyro, and of course, a huge yellow laser-eyed rubber duck fighting a young maiden warrior, transforming her into a real, beautiful duck! Featuring majestic orchestral backing, whirling folky violins and huge Latin choirs, this song is classic Alestorm like you haven’t heard in years - a real throwback to the early days of Captain Morgan’s Revenge!»

Οι "True Scottish Pirate Metallers" (όπως αυτοαποκαλούνται) μας έρχονται από την Σκωτία. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 2004 ως Battleheart και τρία χρόνια αργότερα (και μετά την κυκλοφορία δύο EPs) πήραν το τωρινό τους όνομα. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει επίσης έξι full length albums, τρία EPs, εννέα singles, ένα live album κι ένα split (μαζί με τους Skálmöld)....

Ο δίσκος των Alestorm 'Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Oh wow! It’s time to put on your pirate hat and inflate your rubber ducks, because the world-famous Pirate Metal Drinking Crew ALESTORM, have just set sail on a new voyage with their seventh studio album, Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum!

Produced once again by their long-time co-conspirator Lasse Lammert, this epic swashbuckling adventure is set for release on June 24, 2022 via Napalm Records. The band spent two years during the lockdown going insane and frantically dredging up the craziest pirate metal anthems from their treasure chest of ideas, and have created the most epic and serious (yes, serious) sounding Alestorm album you’ve ever heard.

From the symphonic choir-powered “Magellan’s Expedition” which tells the tale of Ferdinand Magellan’s historical circumnavigation of the earth in 1522, to the rousing anthem “Under Blackened Banners” which features intense technical riffing and exquisite solo duels, “Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum” is a real throwback to the early days of “Captain Morgan’s Revenge”.

But fans of the modern Alestorm sound need not worry either - there’s plenty of party mood in the aptly-named future hit song “P.A.R.T.Y.”, and the high speed insane folk metal banger “Cannonball” has the most ridiculous and offensive lyrics you’ve ever heard in a pirate metal song (it makes “Fucked With an Anchor” sound tame).

Once again the band are joined by a whole host of guest musicians, including repeat appearances from the hurdy-gurdy of Patty Gurdy, the vocals of Captain Yarrface from RUMAHOY, the violin playing of Ally Storch from SUBWAY TO SALLY, majestic choirs from HELLSCORE, plus some familiar Spanish and Japanese vocalists in the final installment of the Wooden Leg Saga.

Most importantly, the album features the world’s first use of a fried egg as an instrument in a metal song, expertly played by Matt Cockram.

But wait, there’s more! As an extra special treat for the die-hard collector fans, some special editions come with a full acoustic rendition of the entire album, and there’s even a legendary version of the album FOR DOGS once again.

So what are you waiting for? Crack open seven bottles of ancient rum, and get ready for the musical voyage of a lifetime!"»
