    This is the production and packaging that was expected Alestorm. After something of a cult band, they are now as if they have a run of this case and not as a novelty. And, in my opinion, they've done it, this CD solidifies everything pirate metal. You have ratcheted things a little on the metal side of things. “The Quest,” “Leviathan,” “The Famous Ol 'Spicy”, “Black Sails at Midnight” and “Chronicles of Vengeance” are all solid metal tunes. It is a much sharper hard-rock edge to all this than on the previous two collections. The songwriting is better, and the band has created new opportunities to complement the keyboard Bowes, in “The Quest”, for example, the song begins with a breathtaking guitar riff and the keyboard then the scale of progression to great effect, and then switch, with the guitar work of keyboard return the call. “Keelhauled”, “No Quarter” and “Pirate Song” once again a large part of the theatrics, she noted that in the first place. But there is no better opening to a song like this letter as the opening of the nostalgic “Keelhauled,” said the theatricality is balanced with great musicality and metal elements. And where were you before, in the humor of the band to themselves like, this CD is all the fun, but adding some seriousness and maturity for the entire show. “Until the end of our days” is a song about the philosophical pirate life and death. And if it is a man who was a name for himself through this whole project, it's Christopher Bowes. His musicality with a guitar strapped keyboard is amazing. And the production on this CD is finally perfect. That helps some of the band. I was surprised that the band two songs, “Leviathan” and “Wolves of the Sea.” I'm assuming it was because of better production and the fact that there are a lot of fans rediscover Alestorm, what with big metal festival appearances (Wacken, Blood Stock, etc.), and they wanted the newer fans a chance to hear two classics (it is still strange, the EP originally, it is hard to find, but they `ve all the added bonus edition of Captain Morgan's Revenge, that is not hard to find). The DVD in the Limited Edition is invaluable. You see, if these guys on a display. There are a lot of pirate banter between the group and the audience (many mosh pitting a pirate band, I thought, these guys get mosh pits like the big bands, sort of), but the thing that is common is their musicality. Just when you think everything is “Arrrrr” call-back games between the group and the audience to tears by Christopher Bowes keyboard as anyone I've heard since Dennis DeYoung (and nobody I've heard in metal) , Ian Wilson and Gareth Murdock a bass-drum solo, that's awesome. Dani Evans, cool in his dreadlocks, the job on the guitar. I've heard better, but he is better than I first gave him credit for just listening to the CDs, he comes into a better life. In relation to packaging, we are away from Corny to the first two CDs that eventually a very cool cover. The front of the CD is cool, but the same picture Captain Morgan is in its full glory of color on the front of the insert to much greater effect. Tired of seeing bands just repeat throughout the inserted images, the interior illustrations of the various characters in the new positions was refreshing. If you are a fan, you'll be very satisfied with this (albeit curious about the re-recordings), and when new, I will only say that it is the unique and pioneering metal there. It is on people, even with the Yo-ho-hos and talk of the BA ** ARDS and landlubbers walk the plank. Get this limited edition while you have a chance.
