RUMAHOY RELEASE A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO
Rumahoy have just released their new single and video for the track “Cowboys Of The Sea”. Their new album Time II: Party will be released on July 17th. Pirate metal is something that has gained in popularity over the course of the last fifteen or so years. Bands like Alestorm, Swashbuckle, and going all the way back to the 80s Running Wild have helped pioneer and push the sub-genre forward. The theme of these bands lyrics is pretty obvious, treasure, plunder, drink, and the high seas. The music is a mix between hard rock, thrash, pagan, and folk music. Mixing Pirates Of The Caribbean themes with Oktoberfest like melodies and anthems.

The band formed back in 2011 in Auchtermuchty, Scotland. They deemed themselves the “World’s Best True Scottish Pirate Metal Band”. Which is why if you’re a fan of fellow Scots Alestorm, they say they’re the “World’s Second Best True Scottish Pirate Metal Band”. They obviously get along as Rumahoy’s lead singer Captain Yarrface guested on the recently released Curse Of The Crystal Coconut by Alestorm.
