The German pirate metal horde The Privateer will release their upcoming third album “The Goldsteen Lay” on July 28th, 2017, via NoiseArt Records.
Today, the band presents the cover artwork of the new record.
The artwork was brought to life by Felipe Machade Franco (Blind Guardian, Rage, Iced Earth, Kambrium).
The band states:
“Finally the time has come and we are proud to present you our new cover artwork, which offers you the first insights into the album concept. The cover has been drawn by no one less than Felipe Machade Franco, who has already worked with bands such as Blind Guardian, Rage and Iced Earth! Soon we will have something more for you: On 16 June we will release the first song of our new album "The Goldsteen Lay". Get ready and mark the day red in your logbook!”...
Recorded in the safe harbors of the Iguana Studios in March-Burchheim under the control of experienced captain Christoph Brandes, who also kicked the gangway of mix & mastering, “The Goldsteen Lay” is an overwhelming adventure in terms of sound engineering as well.

Their Heavy Folk Metal dispersed dust right from their first prey on, and they've found accomodation with the lubbers of NoiseArt Records just in time for their third album.
NoiseArt can't get enough from “The Goldsteen Lay” and will on their part make sure that this adventure will be available worldwide. We have set sails already... will you join us on this epic and adventurous journey?
