Today, not only do we bring you news and a debut of a new metal track and project, but we also bring you some news of an entirely new metal genre; Heritage Fishing Metal, which is a subgenre of Folk Metal.
Captain French, who is, well, The captain of The Catch, has released his debut single, ‘Sex Shark.’
Special guests on ‘Sex Shark’ include Gareth from Alestorm, Sami from Korpiklaani, Petri from Ensiferum, Keith from Cruachan, Baldur from Skalmold, Emilio from Skiltron, John Ryan Ex-Cruachan and others.
The second track of the ‘Sex Shark’ single features a very special guest appearance by Kim Dylla, formerly known as Vulvatron – vocalist for GWAR, and stage clothes maker to the metal starts via her Kylla Custom Rockwear label.
Kim takes on the role of a phone sex operator for her very unique vocal delivery on this. Not for kids. The video for Sex Shark is also a unique experience, created by Andon Hristov, the video shows a Burtonesque vision of sex shark hell.
Captain French spoke a bit about the single by saying:
This song is very deep and meaningful with lyrics that will stir you and make you contemplate on life and fish …. and sharks with willy’s all over them. When the Folk Metal world heard the greatest band ever were finally planning to release a single, there was a mutiny as everyone who’s anyone in the scene were clamouring to be a part of this release.
He also talked about the project as well by stating:
The story starts way back in the cold and dreadful summer of 2013 when me and a fella called ‘Crunchy Cod’ decided we’d form a band. We formed a band, played a show and that was that. Crunchy Cod set sail for The Colonies and things went quiet for seven years, seven months and seven days. After that time, I started writing more fishing and pirating songs, enough to record an album in the unlikely event we get a record deal based on our rubbish videos on YouTube. Then one day we got a record deal based on our rubbish videos on YouTube with Despotz Records. Oops, better polish off those songs.
Mahatma Gandhi also has officially proclaimedMay 14th as Sex Shark day with the comment:
…and they drank from the teat and thus, May 14th became known as Sex Shark Day
