Scottish folk/power metal band ALESTORM has issued the following update:

"After deciding that plumbing isn't all it's cracked up to be, Mr. Ian Wilson has decided to return to the ALESTORM crew to play the drums. We're totally happy to have him back, 'cos he's a badass guy. Dos!

"Also, we've just finished recording a wee four-track EP, which will go on sale to coincide with our upcoming European tour. It's got one new awesome song, a cover, 'Wenches and Mead' in German (oh, yes), and a revamped version of 'Heavy Metal Pirates', available on CD for the first time."

"Leviathan" EP tentative track listing:

01. Leviathan
02. Wolves of the Sea
03. Weiber und Wein (German version of "Wenches and Mead")
04. Heavy Metal Pirates

ALESTORM released its debut album, "Captain Morgan's Revenge", in January through Napalm Records.

According to a press release, the quartet "plays Scottish 'pirate metal,' by their own definition, and musically resembles the great battle metal bands such as KORPIKLAANI or TURISAS, albeit with a unique touch and Scottish instrumentation."
