PIRATE METALLERS SWASHBUCKLE CHALLENGE PIRATE METALLERS ALESTORM TO A CANNON BATTLE
When it comes to pirate metal bands I’m firmly in the Alestorm camp — I just don’t find Swashbuckle to be very musically interesting, sorry — but that doesn’t mean I take the whole thing too seriously. I mean… it’s pirate metal, c’mon.
At this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, Johnny Orlando Jr. — father of Johnny Orlando Jr. Jr., he of the famous “Where do babies come from?” interview — interviewed Swashbuckle frontman Admiral Nobeard for Metal Injection, and the results are predictably hilarious. Nobeard talks salad and getting caught with his pants down before Orlando Jr. gets him to challenge Alestorm to a cannon fight with all the requisite trash-talk.
This is why I like metal. It’s silly. Stop being so damned grim all the time.
