Biography

Alestorm are a power/folk metal band from Perth, Scotland, formed under the name Battleheart in 2004. Their music is characterised by a pirate theme, for which reason they describe their style as "True Scottish Pirate Metal", (a joke in reference to True Norwegian Black Metal). After releasing two EPs, they were signed by Napalm Records in 2007 and renamed themselves to Alestorm.
