Alestorm is a power/folk metal band from Perth, Scotland. Originally formed in 2004 under a different name, they adopted the moniker Alestorm after signing with Napalm Records in 2007. Known for their unique pirate theme, Alestorm humorously refers to their style as "True Scottish Pirate Metal," a playful nod to True Norwegian Black Metal.

With their catchy melodies, heavy guitar riffs, and epic lyrics about pirates and seafaring tales, Alestorm has carved out a niche for themselves within the metal genre.
