the privateer

“The Privateer” sail the waters of sunny southwest Germany. Inspired by classical Heavy Metal, as well as modern Death- and a bit of Power metal, they have created their own characteristic sound. Influences from Folk Metal are particularly highlighted by the use of the violin.
The varied vocals which alternate between clean vocal, screams and choruses give their sound a special note.
With their songs they tell stories of hidden treasures, distant worlds, old nautical lore, and the myths of the sea.
The band released a debut single in 2010 followed by a full length in 2011, after which they signed with Trollzorn records. This made it possible to release their album worldwide.
