English:CD-review
  Van Muylem    14 juli 2017

Ye Banished Privateers describes themselves as a band, a crew an’ a soup kitchen playing sea shanties, bastardized Irish folk an' 17th century punk. And oh, yes: they are from Sweden. I have never heard of them before, but like Alestorm, so this one could be my cup of tea too, let&rsquo...
