Then you should read about John Frum is.  Seriously. It’s strange. Also, if you don’t know what ‘entheogen’ means, search that real quick because it adds a little something to the album. And, uh, Alestorm will teach you how to be a pirate…so that’s useful…

Does ye scurvy dog like pirates?  Yar in the right place.
Into filthy, nasty stuff that could be involved in serial killing? Look no further.
Wanna be pummeled while floating through space? We can help.
Feel like some throwback that maybe reminds you of a simpler time? We have something for that.
Craving a bit of all the above at the same time? Glad you found the podcast!  Also, you should probably watch this movie…and/or talk to a specialist.

If you aren’t the kind of Metal-head who likes a little bit of everything, you are going to find yourself using chapter skip a lot this episode. However, since you are listening to this show, we would be inclined to assume you are that kind of Metal-head, in which case, we have you covered.  From hellish soundtracks to folkiness to progressive to pirates, we just happen to touch on about as many heavy music styles as we can within the span of an episode between out new album reviews and First Impressions.  It may get a little jarring…but you have been warned.
