Rumahoy are a band from North Carolina that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a mixture of folk and pirate metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Time II: Party" which will be released on July 17th by Napalm Records.
Water sounds start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction along with some chants and spoken word parts while the music also brings in a great amount of folk metal elements. Clean vocals are also a very huge part of the recording as well as the vocals also adding in a rough pirate style and accordions are also mixed in with the heavy parts of the songs.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the guitar solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style and also show more of a metal/rock style at times along with one track also adding in some touches of electronic music and hip hop style vocals, some of the riffing also shows an influence of thrash metal and most of the tracks also stick to a mid tempo style and as the album progresses a brief use of demonic voices can also be heard.
On this recording Rumahoy removes all of the black and extreme metal elements from their previous releases and focuses more on a straightforward pirate/folk metal style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover pirates, booty, questing, drinking and humor themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rumahoy and if you are a fan of folk and pirate metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cowboys Of The Sea" "The Legend Of Captain Yarrface" "The Beer From My Town Is Better Than Yours" and "Stolen Treasure". 8 out of 10.
