Scottish folk/power metallers ALESTORM have released the official music video for their new song "Mexico", taken from the band's upcoming fifth full-length album. Titled "No Grave But The Sea", the disc will be released on May 26 via Napalm Records.
Says the band: "Oh wow! It's Cinco de Mayo, so let's celebrate with a song dedicated to our favorite country in the world — Mexico! Like most of our music, this song is about drinking, pirates, and explosions. And don't worry, it's not a real donkey, it's just Bobo and Elliot in a donkey costume."
"No Grave But The Sea" track listing:
01. No Grave But The Sea
03. To the End of the World
05. Bar und Imbiss
06. Fucked with an Anchor
07. Pegleg Potion
08. Man the Pumps
09. Rage of the Pentahook
10. Treasure Island
No other band in the galaxy creates such epic modern symphonic folk metal anthems with endless hooks that will be stuck in your head until the heat death of the universe. Or in ALESTORM's own words, "stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing treasure." Twisted together with blistering harmonized guitar and keyboard solos, thunderous power metal majesty, and unrelenting modern metal riffing, "No Grave But The Sea" is nothing less than the perfect soundtrack to the most epic battle of your life. "A pirate's life is simple; we drink and steal and kill!" So raise up your tankard into the sky for this brand new treasure of pirate metal.
ALESTORM's last album, "Sunset On The Golden Age", came out in August 2014 via Napalm Records.
