I think they are sort of so bad they're good...in a cheesy and fun drunken singalong kind of way. Which always goes down well at a festival! :P

I like them, I'll be definitely be watching if they don't clash. At Bloodstock 2008 their intro was the theme tune to the fresh prince of bel air, and the whole crowd sung it. It was pretty epic.

They're a lot of fun live. They were excellent supporting Sabaton in November. Seriously good.

Nothing like a bit of pirate metal! I saw Alestorm when they were supporting Sabaton, last year in London, they were good fun! Looking forward to seeing them again! :)

I read they're playing the Bohemia stage, myabe Soni should decorate the tent as a pirate ship for their set!

I would say I'd stick out too but you know, the whole ninja thing means people won't be seeing me ;)

awfully, cheesely good - wonder if they'll do their cover of Unicorn Invasion at Soni? that was pretty awesome :lol:

they were good supporting Sabaton, though obviously overshadowed.

the only criteria I have is they don't bring out that frakking fat near naked guy - his bullocks flopping out of his pants almost scarred me

Im still not sure if they are genius or crap but I think they will be huuuuuuuuuuge amounts of fun. :)

Are we really the Dream Police?
