Batten down the hatches! Swedish sea pillagers YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS will capsize your ship with their third single “Rowing With One Hand” from the upcoming album Hostis Humani Generis via Napalm Records. Along with an atmospheric audiovisual, YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS present another snapshot straight from the pirate capital Nassau. 


In the cinematic video, the Swedish pirates prepare the great escape from court and fight for their freebooter rights, clashing with the upscale bourgeoisie. Unmistakably folky, charming and with a bunch of drunken humor, YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS draws you into their maritime universe. “Rowing With One Hand” presents the hard life of pirates on the wild ride through the ancient times. This intense sing-along hymn and its catchy rhythm lets the listener take part in the ferocious side of the pirates and lets them flee in a cheerful frenzy from the clutches of decency. They find their way in the storm, setting course for the next adventure and keep fighting for their rebellious freedom.

Kris Olivius (Naglfar) along with a social statement, that they have ambitions to become the number one Power Thrash Pirate Metal Band in Europe.

YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS are well known for their singalong hymns and unmistakably folksy tunes, as can be heard on their latest pirate epos Hostis Humani GenerisAs the true corsairs of hearts, they’ve taken the people’s opinion very seriously and now leave the paths of folk behind: this time, it’s either metal or die! With a stiff sea breeze, a clear wink of the eye and a lot of cheeky humor, the pirates metallize their trademark sound.

YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS on “No Metal, No Pay“: “With “No Metal, No Pay” we wanted to make fun of ourselves, and joke about the misconceptions that comes from being a folk music band signed to a metal label, and hopefully give people a laugh or two in these difficult times. For us, this April’s Fools release is our way of saying that although we put a lot of effort into our music, we really don’t take ourselves all that serious all the time. Reviewers and first-time listeners who expect us to sound like great Pirate Metal bands like Alestorm or Running Wild, are prone to be disappointed by the lack of distorted guitars and gut punching blast beats. We are proud and happy to be signed to Napalm Records, one of the worlds biggest metal labels, but we are sticking to what we know best – Pirate Folk.“

Even if it’s just for one day: Put the fiddle aside, strengthen your growls and get ready for YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS’ metal banger!
