Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2008 / 2010 / 2012 / 2014 / 2017

Folk / Pagan / Viking




This particular pirate ship has moored in Dessel on four previous occasions. The ensuing raids were so lucrative that folk metal heroes Alestorm couldn’t resist hoisting their Jolly Roger and plotting a course for Dessel yet again. Fortunately they haven’t sailed off the edge of the planet yet so they were able to include Graspop in their summer schedule. Meanwhile they’ve entered the studio to start work on their upcoming new album ‘No Grave but the Sea’. They’ve announced the new album will be “full of epic songs about pirates, drinking and pseudoscientific cryptogeography”. So raise your mugs, screw on your wooden leg and sing (and drink) along to Alestorm’s irresistible metal sea shanties. (#GMM17)
