Biography

PRIVATEER’S HISTORY (The Black Ship’s log-book) :

PRIVATEER- metal band, which was founded in July 2005 in Krakow, by the bass player and composer Andrzej “Skorgan’ Pichliński.

Only two months after the band’s founding, Privateer published independedly their first single, “Monolith”. The recording was received enthusiastically in the underground, which encouraged the band to work on a full-lenght album.

In the same year (2005) Privateer began cooperation with the Absinthia Management concert agency. Since the beginning of 2006 the band toured extensively, joining Sorcerer and Archeon (Made of Hate) in February for the “Winter Metal Tour 2006”.

In spring 2006 “The Traitors”, Privateer’s debut LP was recorded. The album received positive reviews both in Poland and abroad, gaining the band many new fans. All this resulted in record deal proposals from foreign labels. The band decided to sign a one-album contract with a German publisher, STF Records. The deal guaranteed promotion and distribution of “The Traitors” in Western Europe and Scandinavia.

In the meantime, Privateer won a few Polish festivals (1st prize during the Cracow Music Festival, 1st prize during the Mayday Rock Festival in Głogów). Shortly afterwards Privateer took part in the “Cracow Invasion” mini-tour alongside Witchking. The tour included dates in Poland and Slovakia.

In spring 2007 Privateer joined the Swedish band Sabaton for the “Metalizing Europe Tour” - these were the last concerts played in the original line-up.
