Cat O’ Nine Tails – the first Christian pirate metal band – rises from the coasts of Finland. The birth of this four-piece pirate crew dates back to 2012 when bassist Tuomas Kannisto (also known for the band HB) and guitarist Samuel Savander started to write music with this very unique twist. The crew needed a captain and thus a versatile vocalist Janne Heiskanen joined the band. The rhythm section was flogged by Lauri Tuomenoksa who then abandoned the ship and was replaced by Eetu Pesu in 2016.

The recordings for the epic debut album ”Under Captain’s Flag” began in the late summer of 2013 at Kiipu Studios under Antti Niskala‘s protection. Last notes and soundscapes were added in early 2015. The self-published debut album was released on 25 April 2015 on the bands first live-show at Immortal Metal Fest.

Cat O’ Nine Tails aims now for the international waters and continues to create new music with open-minded experimentation.
