“Superskum” (web site) conducted an interview with vocalist Christopher Bowes of Scottish folk/power metallers ALESTORM prior to the band’s April 13 concert at the Marquis Theater in Denver, Colorado. You can now watch the chat below. Also available is quality multi-camera video footage of the Denver concert.
ALESTORM‘s “Shipwrecked” video was filmed in Belgrade, Serbia with director Ivan Colic, who has previously worked with EPICA, KAMELOT and KATAKLYSM. The song comes off the band’s third album, “Back Through Time”, which was released in June 2011 via Napalm Records.
Commented Bowes: “No expense was spared in the making of [the ‘Shipwrecked’ video], and I can confidently say that it’s . . . the best damn music video ever. ‘But how can you be so sure?’ I hear you ask. Here’s why: violin playing midgets! Hot medieval babes! Ridiculous CGI! Rampant alcohol abuse! All this and much, much more!”
“Back Through Time” was produced by Lasse Lammert at LSD Studios in Lübeck, Germany. The effort was made available as a jewelcase, mediabook, LP, and special-edition boxset “featuring bonus tracks and other mad shite!”
