As always, the DDBham Team tries to bring you dining and drinking related articles and news from the surrounding area. And while musical entertainment is not our specialty, there is often an overlap between food, drink, and music. Case in point is the popular pirate, hard rock band called “Alestorm“, playing at the Wild Buffalo on October 18th, 2016. While not only playing at one of the mot popular drinking venues in Bellingham, the band’s name has the word “Ale” in it — making it directly applicable to the topic areas of our magazine.
Quoting from the band’s website; “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 “Dankened Yarrcore”, 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.
Since then the band has “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.”
Their show was at the Wild Buffalo on October 18, 2016. For more information on this hard rockin’ band, check out their website at http://www.alestorm.net/.
