In a time where bands tend to take themselves way too serious, there are always bands that willingly embrace ridiculousness. An example of one of these bands is Alestorm, the pirate metal band. But just like many musicians, Alestorm’s keyboard player and vocalist Christopher Bowes has other fascinations. He, and the rest of Gloryhammer, take us back to the distant future of ‘Space 1992: Rise Of The Chaos Wizards’ to show off their amazing skills.
When the guys from Alestorm come to town, you kind of know what to expect. Partying, laughing and a huge amount of humor. A couple of hours before the only Dutch show in Eindhoven, singer/keyboard player Christopher Bowes and bass player Gareth Murdock shed some light on the recording of the fourth album and what may have changed Alestorm over the past couple of years. Luckily they were glad to, among other things, share some of their knowledge.
