Format: Audio CD
Second albums are often as problem as most of the best songs that have been worked on for years are unsurprisingly included on the debut, so a followup to the excellent Captain Morgan's revenge was always going to be problem.

The problem has been easily resolved with this cracking new album. Nine Rollocking songs and one fast and furious instrumental.

The songs are very catchy and full of fun, and Chritopher Bowes's vocals are the epitomy of all things piratical.

The sound is slightly more guitar driven on this album with thundering drums.

Stand out songs to me are Keelhauled (can't get the chorus out my mind), Leviathan (hard and heavy and also the first time I've caught the word eviscerating in a song!) and the very jolly wolves of the sea which is almost as good on album as it was performed live.

The rest of the songs including the stunning famous old spiced are all strong and will work really well live.

Champion album spend some of your hard fought for booty on it now or you'll end up walking the plank!

The CD is the usual Alestorm awesomeness, it's nice having Leviathan on CD along with the other new ones. I really enjoyed it ^_^ The CD gets 5/5, the fact that it's not that a great ltd edition knocked a star off

At the moment it's about 16 and I'm kind of glad I used a voucher on it. If you've seen Alestorm live already I wouldn't bother too much about getting the DVD. It's fine... but it's not amazing and I've seen them better. If you haven't seen them live or saw them at Wacken you'll be more bothered about it. The packaging isn't brilliant either. The cover's prettier than the basic edition but that's about it.

I'd wait and see if it comes down in price if you're determined you want this one...

Now, yes, I know it's a bit of a one trick pony, but if you're going to have bands bashing out battle metal, then you may as well have one dressed up as pirates, singing songs about pirates, calling themselves pirate metal.

For sure, Running Wild did it all a hunnerd years or so back, but we can hardly claim to be overrun with bands of this ilk. It is a bit keyboard heavy for me in places, but as the Scotch rockers rampage through 'That Famous Ol' Spiced', 'Keelhauled' and, yes, 'Pirate Song', you can't fail to have a smile on your face, a bang in your head, and a parrot on your shoulder.

Good, fun, hearty metal, and there's nowt wrong with that!

The first disc, (Black Sails At Midnight CD) is brillaint, 10 tracks of pirate metal anthems that will surely have you raising your cutlesses for more. The DVD is good also, though deffinately not their best performance to date. In fact it will probably only be exciting to watch if you actually attended the show (like myself!) Either way, a highly recomended purchase.

I came to this recommended by a friend. A quick listen on his laptop it sounded interesting. On a decent sound system it blew me away. Even better in the car! I don't usually listen to such outright metal, more mainstream rock, blues etc but this album is well worth setting any prejudices aside for. Not really a weak track on the whole album and a real olde/folk music feel to some thrashin' rifts.

Bought this for my brother and he loves Alestorm. They're pirate metal so not everyone's cup of tea but great if you like that sort of thing.

Yes, really good mix of sea shanty and heavy metal. A lot of fun, and a bit of a laugh too.

Black Sails at Midnight is Alestorm's second album after Captain Morgan's Revenge that explores the art of pirate metal. An untouched genre that has made the band stand out but it's not just the theme and interesting lyrics. Every sound that the band creates are real polished pieces of music. Bowes has wrote some very catchy keyboard solo's and Harper's guitar solo's and riffs sure give the album an edge that can keep you gripped and entertained for hours. The combination of take in turn solos between guitar and keys is very captivating and hugely engrossing.

For me anyway the real highlights are Leviathan (and epic six minute song that always leaves a strange silence once the powerful track is over), No Quarter (a traditional style folk/metal song) and That Famous ol' Spice which will have you singing along once you learn the lyrics. Chronicles of Vengeance is also one to mention, so exhilarating and ruthless it can give you goose bumps, and The Pirate Song is another awesome and exciting song that just has to be heard. The keyboards go from an accordion sound for that authentic folk metal theme, electric organs and synthesizers. This really helps deliver the riveting sound and feel of being out at sea and taking part in these adventures that the songs are based on.

All in all it's a very exciting, energetic and original album that will help lift spirits, get you out of a black cloud and brighten your day. The songs on this album (and all their albums) are very creative. The CD itself is very well produced. The bonus DVD with the special edition is a great bonus to see one of their more notable gigs when promoting their debut album. If you can get it its worth the extra buck.
