The “Shipwrecked” video can be viewed below. The clip was filmed in Belgrade, Serbia with director Ivan Colic, who has previously worked with EPICA, KAMELOT and KATAKLYSM.
Commented ALESTORM frontman/keyboardist Christopher 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!”
According to a press release, ALESTORM “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.”
