From 'True Scottish Pirate Metal', Christopher Bowes, the mastermind behind Alestorm, jumps into 'Heroic Fantasy Power Metal'! His new band's name is GLORYHAMMER they describe it like this: 

"Scotland - A highland realm of mystery, wonder, and epic battles from an ancient time, shrouded by magical mists. A time of dragons and wizards, and enchanted weapons. These are the legends of the Kingdom of Fife, when the great hero Angus McFife waged an epic war against the evil wizard Zargothrax, to free the people of Dundee in the name of glory and steel. These are the legends of GLORYHAMMER!
