True Scotish Pirate Metal

Like it or not, pirates have infiltrated Halloween to a large degree.  I blame those horrible movies with Johnny Depp, but that's neither here nor there.  I only mention this as an excuse for including this next video in my series of increasingly infrequent Halloween blogs.

Scotland's Alestorm play a mix of heavy metal and sea shantys, complete with pirate-y vocals.  It's absolutely ridiculous, and I don't think I could stand to listen to a whole album's worth all at once, but this video for "Keelhauled" from their most recent album Black Sails at Midnight is a hoot, and the song is kind of catchy.
