Paddy And The Rats to release new studio album “Riot City Outlaws” on April 6th 2018

Ireland! Shamrocks, shenanigans, sheep and pubs are some of the many highlights the Emerald Isle has to offer – that's what Hungarian punk rockers Paddy And The Rats rightfully realized and quickly whipped out their fiddles and plugged in their guitars.

Now Paddy And The Rats unveil first and hotly anticipated details about their fifth record titled “Riot City Outlaws”, which is set to be released on April 6th, 2018, via Napalm Records!

Alestorm - No Grave but the Sea

Alestorm must be one of the worst bands that came out in the last few years. Keyboard laden “metal” with very average vocals that hardly register as proper singing. Pseudo folk aspirations, stolen from shanties and jigs, turned into simple songs with no real choruses.
