Rumahoy - Time II: Party



I'm not going to lie. My main takeaway from Rumahoy's cleverly named Time II: Party is 'The Pirate Metal Scene is really fucking weird man.' That's really what this band comes down too. They are playing fun pirate metal, perhaps not at the same level as Alestorm, but remaining really goddamn fun regardless. That being said Rumahoy have crafted a record here that is self referential, silly and over the top. Sure they might not have the chops of some of their peers but it doesn't matter because you'll be having too good a time to notice.

There are so many weird layers to unpack here, from calling out the bands peers to a guest spot from Alestorm's Christopher Bowes. Having billed themselves as "Scotlands Greatest Pirate Metal Band" it would only be fitting that the album closer be a parody of a track from "Scotlands Second Greatest Pirate Metal Band" - Alestorm. While they definitely are not as good as Alestorm (The less melodic vocals in particular don't do it for me here) they remain a whole lot of fun. There is clear jig pit material with tracks like 'Time to Party' and the dance vibes of 'Poop Deck Party' are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

So yes there are a lot of corny elements here, but Rumahoy know it. This was never meant to be some sort of great art, it's just a record that's going to make you smile, mosh and sing-a-long loudly. This is the kind of stuff that has been perfectly crafted for the European festival stage. They are drunk, loud and proud. Who isn't going to love some of the most absurd metal ever committed to wax? There's literally a song about a gun made out of treasure, yes it's stupid, but also you gotta love it. And that's really what this album is in a nutshell.
