Alestorm is an OK band with a great gimmick, and You Are a Pirate is an OK song with a great theme, but I can't help but feel that something is missing. They need the female singing parts; Robbie had some good songs, but Stephanie is the one who carried the show (musically in particular), and leaving her out of YAAP is like making a cake with no frosting.
Anyway, question: are there any OTHER pirate metal bands besides Alestorm? Alestorm is the only one I've ever heard, but if there are more I'm open to recommendations.
Pirate Metal has been around since the 80s.
Running Wild are probably a good starting point. They're like the Iron Maiden of pirate metal. In that they sound a lot like Iron Maiden but they sing about piracy.
Back around '89 or '90 there was a guy up in Maine who was so in to these guys that he ran an ad in the Metal Edge classifieds where you could send him and he'd send you a letter and a Running Wild mixtape because he was trying to build enough popular support to get their albums released in the USA. I might still have mine. It was short, "Diamonds Of the Black Chest," "Prisoners Of Our Time" and maybe one more.
Were Running Wild pirate metal? I thought they were just plain old power metal with one or two pirate songs?
Well, alright, one or two pirate *albums*.
See, it's not just MLP! You guys know way too much about all the children's shows, which reaffirms my belief that you are a bunch of pedos.

I had several people point me to this in the course of a couple days, all like tee hee look it's metal but about pirates isn't it precious? No. Fuck this shit. I'm drawing a line.
They're OK, but they're aggressively mid-tier; unless you're a big fan of power metal and/or are a pirate, you're unlikely to find anything enduring with Alestorm.
I don't know who's been telling you to listen to this song, but it works better as a LazyTown cover than a "metal about pirates" song.
