Technekratos Silly story time: Tumblr is full of bullcrap posts about "Your X according to your astrological sign" posts I usually scroll past... until one day I noted one assigned "oddly specific metal genres". Curious, I checked and mine was "chiptune pirate metal". Blew my mind you could mix these three awesome things. I ran to google and lo and behold: found this magnificent EP.
Bought it and put in on a special playlist I got to air at work for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. :) Favorite track: Hook The Plank.

It's 3 years to the very day Since a pirate captain said to me Hey lad come join our crew Adventure and glory waits for you! I took his words as gold Set sail for quests untold With a bottle of rum in my hand I dreamed of wealth and foreign lands! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked you will cease to be! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked your destiny! On the 16th night at sea In the depths of toil and misery We struck a hidden reef And our ship began to sink beneath I grabbed some drifting wood And held on as long as I could 'Til abandoned on a desert isle Now stuck here 'til the day I die! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked you will cease to be! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked your destiny! Shipwrecked! Shipwrecked! Get drunk or die! Shipwrecked! Shipwrecked! Get drunk or die! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked you will cease to be! Hey! you're banjaxed! Hey! you're screwed! And death is coming for you! Trapped on an island lost at sea! Shipwrecked your destiny!

We’ve taken land before we rule the entire sea We’re venturing through new ground to where the ground can not be seen We’ve built a ship that will never touch sea never get wet, never swim too deep We’ve built a ship that can go anywhere a ship that floats on air! Bet you thought your jet was safe but we can fucking fly! Ground that bastard right away we’re pirates of the skies Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s a flying ship. It sails upon the airways goes wherever it sees fit. We’ve built a ship that will never touch sea never get wet, never swim too deep, We’ve built a ship that can go anywhere, a ship that floats on air! Bet you thought the birds were safe but we can fucking fly! We’re cooking eagle for tea today and I’ll tell you fucking why... Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da we’re all so fucking high Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da we’re pirates of the skies! Man no flights, ground your planes ‘cause we can fucking fly, Your aircraft is no longer safe and I’ll tell you fucking why... Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re all so fucking high, Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re pirates of the skies! Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we drink until we die Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re pirates of the skies!

All aboard! Swim for it. We stole your shit. Satchels thick. Throats now slit. No doubloons? Leave them marooned. Checks and charges? What be this garbage? Pearls and lace. Make no waste Rum for taste. Loot with haste. Party boat, party boat, party boat. Vacation at the sea. You've sailed uncharted waters. Now you'll cease to be. Party boat, party boat, party boat. Nowhere near the land. By the time they find you, you'll have died by our hands. CRUISE SHIP TERROR! No survivors. Set it afire. A burning mast. Now avast. Our hull's full with valuables. We'll sail away to loot more pay. Take the women. Leave them frantic. We are Swashbuckle. We sunk the Titanic. Party boat, party boat, party boat. Vacation at the sea. You've sailed uncharted waters. Now you'll cease to be. Party boat, party boat, party boat. Nowhere near the land. By the time they find you, you'll have died by our hands. CRUISE SHIP TERROR! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! WE STOLE YOUR SHIT!

The night was filled with drink and song, with gambling and deceit Pipes of wine were offered up to all who walked the street Harlots latched on each our arms, drunk and full of meat Let’s head back to the brothel for a little more to eat The smells of sex and food and booze greeted as they passed Tempting us with untold bliss, they knew our thirst was vast We gathered ‘round a table where the liars dice were cast This epic night would soon be gone and it would be our last Our binge did carry on till the night became the day Till all ill gotten riches were carelessly pissed away As we staggered to our ship, the world began to shake All around us brick and timber threatening to break. Mouths of hell tore from the ground, whilst fire spewed from below Divine wrath’s eyes set upon us all and our fear began to grow We spent our days with no regret, living life in the afterglow Now the Earth looks to consume us, we all reap what we sow Sand and unpaved streets did rise and fall like violent waves As buildings turned to rubble leaving many unmarked graves Praying to be saved, towards the church we made to flee But god’s house hath forsaken us, descending deep to sea Mighty tremors came and went, spreading chaos and debris As off the shore, the water swelled and leapt out of the sea Ghastly tides attacked the town, wailing like a banshee And left behind a salty void where Port Royal should be “Nothing else was seen but the dead and dying nor heard but shrieks and cries As the sea retreated, taking with it all our sins and lives."
