Napalm Records has announced the signing of Scotland's ALESTORM. According to a press release, the quartet "plays Scottish 'pirate metal,' by their own definition, and musically resembles the great battle metal bands such as KORPIKLAANI or TURISAS, albeit with a unique touch and Scottish instrumentation. They currently find themselves in the studio recording their debut and recently completed a shoot with master photographer Steve Brown (TURISAS, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE). Scene great Ingo Rohmling will design cover and layout."
ALESTORM's debut album is scheduled for a February 2008 release.
