    So just today I heard about the existence of "pirate metal." My initial thoughts were,"What?"

    Basically where I am going with this thread is this:
    -What are some good examples of pirate metal?
    -What even defines pirate metal?

    I don't think it's a genre. From what I know it's just a term given to bands that use pirate themes in their lyrics,

    I always feel a bit ashamed watching RW videos that the band is so much more into the pirate thing than the crowd

    Basically:
    Swashbuckle - Death metal. Sings about pirates.
    Running Wild - Sings about pirates. Classic heavy metal stuff. Speed metal.
    Alestorm - Pirate inspired power metal. VERY pirate lyrics. Probably the most piratey ones out there

    I allways found this concept even more ludicrous than 'viking metal'.

    Saint vitus has a pirate song Burial at Sea which is kick ass.

    You guys are all faggots.

    Pirates = manly.
    Metal = manly.

    Naturally, pirate metal = ultra-manly.

    There's a band called Scurvy who seem to be pirate themed. I'd wager they're crap though.
