Remastered re-release of third full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy/Power/Speed Metal band.
“Under Jolly Roger” was the first album that initially started the age of piracy. This album marks a stylistic turning point in which the band dropped the Satanic imagery they had previously used and adopted the pirate theme they would become known for, creating and influencing a subgenre of Heavy Metal, later (in the 2000s) named a Pirate Metal. The album's title comes from the famous Jolly Roger, the flag used by pirates to identify their ships.
"Under Jolly Roger" is one of the more focused albums in the band's early career. Despite the major turnaround in the concept, the music remained at some point similar to what they wrote for the previous releases, but a bit more variety at the same time. The songs on this album are not complex at all, but quite enjoyable and heavy as hell, even though they lost some aggressiveness, that characterized their earliest years. "Under Jolly Roger" is a great record from start to finish. Solid songwriting and improved production work is precisely what makes this album a huge leap forward for the band. This is a fine transitional album that really displays the band's early brilliant attempt at delivering pirate themed Heavy Metal. Moreover, the incredible musicianship offered by the band remains as another reason to consider getting this album at all costs!
Deluxe Expanded Edition includes foldout booklet with Pirate Map and notes, and second disc with eight bonus tracks.
