Alestorm is really no different from a folk/viking band like Ensiferum or Tyr. They just sing about pirates instead, and they have been around (with different names) for quite some time before they got signed by napalm.

However, I agree that the other 9 are publicity stunts.

Also arent Alestorm the first "pirate-metal" band...Running Wild were doing this since the mid 80s, and by far more awesome. By far more cheesy too, but hey - it were the 80s! (they were cheesy until the end 2 years ago tough :lol: )
