I tried Alestorm

I found them to be a bit cheesy for my taste

I wasn't sure what exactly 'Pirate Metal', as some people had chosen to call it, was defined and to me it sounded like a blending of power and folk without really bringing out the best in either subgenre.

Yeah, it's really an acquired taste. They're big in Scotland I believe. It's definitely got folk and power metal in it and I think it doesn't bring out the best in either side because, it's got it's own personality towards it. I for one just liked the keytar in the beginning, it was humorous.

To be honest most sub-genres of metal are a load of bollocks.

Pirate Metal is like Viking Metal and all those "non-existing" subgenres, that just happens to be Melodic Death/Power/Epic Folk Metal with specific lyrical themes and/or some melodies with a pirate-ish flavor... if that ever means anything :P

It's just stupid and useless. I have to admit that Finntroll made me laugh with their Troll Metal subgenre :P

But yeah, that kind of music is always somewhat cheesy... as it really doesn't feel like what we could call "real folk metal" or whatever... I'm talking about bands like Ulver with their album Bergtatt or Agalloch with Pale Folklore. Bands like Eluvetie, Equilibrium, Ensiferum or Alestorm are amongs these bands that some like to call "Epic Folk". While that doesn't make them automatically bad, these bands usually tend to play a more accessible and poppish genre of Metal. Some of these bands even take influences from the Melodic Death Metal scene.

I agree, a lot of subgenres that are theme based are kind of retarded, I think I've only stuck with Viking Metal because of Amon Amarth. And I only listen to a few Alestorm songs.

I'm just saying you can't make up genres based on nothing else than the band's image or favorite lyrical themes. Especially when the music is nothing else than Folk Metal.

From now on, Empyrium will be Nature Metal, Blotted Science will be Brain Metal, Abigail Williams will be Satan Metal, Edguy will be Happy Metal and Evile will be Violence Metal. See?

I really like how Equilibrium and Ensiferum tackle the epic folk style. At least from those two I get more a sense of individuality and variance in their style. It feels more like they are building on other styles and blending them in ways that makes it more unique whereas Alestorm was more just a 'fitting together' of multiple genres. I haven't really listened to Eluvetie so I don't really have an opinion on them.

I also really like Equilibrium :) Their music was great, but they felt the need to change vocalist and their latest album just isn't any good...

I'm one that enjoys their music. I knew them before they were called Alestorm. I see them as a band having some laughs and not making music serious business for them.

Fun fact: There's a medieval metal subgenre floating around here.

"We play death metal. We write about vikings so, therefore, some refer us to viking metal, but I have no idea what that is. I can't imagine the vikings veer into metal at all except on the swords and stuff. And musically, I guess they only played these strange lip instruments and some bongos or whatever. "

Have you heard Live from the Relapse Contamination Festival?
Pretty good live album with a killer cover of Venom's Witching Hour.

I'll have to check it out, I'm liking High on Fire more and more these days. Also Bahamut, congratulations on achieving an even more badass level!

There's some word going around that Judas Priest are to play several shows in the UK in mid-July. The band themselves haven't confirmed it yet but dammit, I want them to play in Manchester a few days after my 21st birthday!

Anyone else really excited for the BTBAM EP?. They recently released a 6 minute preview of one of the songs, and it sounds great as expected.

I'll upload for ye peeps tomorrow. Also black guard , neuraxis, and pathology played. I'm going to be so fucking sore in the morning.

I'm going to have to agree.

ALSO, HAI GUYS I'M BACK. Seeing finntroll with ensiferum tomorrow night(well technically tonight, but you know what I mean)

But more importantly than that, is barren earth is opening. Barren Earth features the vocalist of Swallow The Sun, the lead guitarist of Kreator, two of the members of Moonsorrow and two of the members of Amorphis - so as you can imagine, barren earth are pretty epic. I definitely recommend them to any fans of melodic death metal, death-doom or Opeth. (And if you don't know any of those four bands BE contains the members of, then you don't belong in this club)

So yeah, how are you guys?

Personally I hate both Amon Amarth and Belphegor. I like Deicide, but when I saw them a few years ago they were WASTED out of their minds and totally butchered their entire setlist.

ALSO GUYS, I BET YOU ALL WISH YOU WERE AS METAL AS ME. ;D
