It’s Pirate metal!

It’s Scottish Pirate metal!!

It’s Scottish Pirate with a Keytar metal!!!

Not only is Keelhauled a perfect Halloween song to get you in that dress-up-and-gut-a-deserving-swine mood, it pretty much has one of the catchiest sing-along choruses ever recorded. I know we don’t all have Sid Meier-esque daydreams about raiding towns up and down the Spanish Main and plundering the Treasure Fleet before it leaves the Caracas channel… and for those sad people who don’t, this video is especially for you. A terrifying deadly trip…
