Something about the name of this band just hooked me and left me with a bunch of questions and ideas. Was this going to be a pirate-themed band like the band name may nod to or is that just a coincidence? I got a very quirky vibe from the name Pirates of the Promised Land so, regardless of if their track “They Left A Long Time Ago” ends up being a pirate-themed song or not, I was intrigued and ready to jump into it.

I was both surprised and not surprised at how this track started with about thirty seconds of acoustic guitar. It’s kind of what I would expect from a Pirate themed group– you know, that folksy vibe? After that intro, everything changed. Pirates of the Promised Land are far from a pirate-themed band but I still loved them. As the vocals come in, you get hit with a sound that’s reminiscent of The Lawrence Arms or Pennywise but with a beat that is a bit more hurried and frantic. Although you get that frantic speed throughout the song with the fast drums hits, this song never bridges into that “out of control” world which says a lot about the talent and restraint that Pirates of the Promised has. Okay, so maybe I was low-key hoping this was going to be a pirate metal type song but, when the song ended and I was left in silence, I realized that this was an absolutely flawless track even without that.
