Danish metal band Volbeat has parted ways with lead guitarist Thomas Bredahl and has also shared that former Anthrax and The Damned Things guitarist Rob Caggiano has officially joined the band. His addition has proved integral to the band's ever evolving sound. Caggiano also served as producer on Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies alongside long-time production partner Jacob Hansen, who produced and mixed the band's prior four albums.

"Half of the album tracks will take you into the world of outlaw gunslinger stories sometime in the 1800s. Some of the characters are true legends, while others are fiction. The listener will hear inspiration from classic spaghetti western movies which gives you a clue to the album title and cover artwork."

"You can hear the influence of the Old West right from the start in "Let's Shake Some Dust," an evocative intro track that features harmonica from acclaimed blues harp player Paul Lamb."

This is definitely the most ambitious set of tracks they've committed to tape, the songwriting is tightly focused, there are lots of hooks, most of them heavy -- thanks, no doubt, to Caggiano's presence. The band shifts from rockabilly to thrash, from death metal to heavy metal to country, and often within the fabric of the same song. Hard rock and vintage heavy metal dominate on cuts like "Pearl Heart," the rifferiffic "The Nameless One," and the ultra-aggressive attack in "The Hangman's Body Count."

"The slow, doomy chug of "Room 24" melds early Black Sabbath, Hetfieldishness, to death metal with King Diamond guesting on vocals." Great pick guys!

"Another surprise is in the cover of Young the Giant's "My Body." Thanks to Poulsen's awesome singing and the blasting guitars, it could pass as a Volbeat anthem.

One could easily make the argument that in 2013, modern rock radio is reaching the saturation point that we experienced in 1990 or so with Motley Jovi and the rest of their hair band brothers in spandex. Their level of over-exposure on the airwaves and MTV paved the way for the Alt-rock and Grunge revolution of 1991. Bands like Trixter, Tyketto and Lynch Mob came at the tail end of that scene and despite being composed of talented players who wrote solid music, they were lost in the tidal wave that washed away the old guard and transformed local punk rock kids into flannel flying rock icons. So while the industry continues to crank out a seemingly endless chain of KidNickelDusts, clearly what we need to do is to start importing hard rock bands from Denmark who sound like the sonic love child of Metallica and Godsmack, right?

Yes, yes we do.

Volbeat return in 2013 with 'Outlaw Gentleman and Shady Ladies,' the follow-up to their 2010 release 'Beyond Hell/Above Heaven.' Stop for a second and simply take in the fact that less than three years have passed since Volbeat gave us their breakthrough record. That's somewhat remarkable, especially given the fact that the last Tool and Metallica LPs were released when we had a different President. That 'Outlaw' is essentially a non-stop anthem that embraces American hard rock's soaring power chorus' and tidy song structure, while deftly incorporating the darker thematic elements and technical guitar solos typically reserved for heavy metal, effectively separates this band from those whom they clearly draw so much inspiration from.

What's done right here is done really right.

Solid CD if you've been listening to them for awhile. It's a bit different from their previous albums in regards to "how" heavy the songs are, but still enjoyable.

The thing that corks me is that they had extra songs on a Best Buy exclusive release for the same album. I took a star off just for that. Seriously, if you limit extra content to ensure people buy it at an inflated price at another vendor, I lose respect for you. This is why people pirate.

It is so hard to write this review without using profanities. I was totally on another wavelength in my music listening when I realized that Volbeats new album came out (do I age myself when I say album ? ) and now I have to listen to them all day, maybe for the next few weeks. When their first album came out to me it was love at first listen and every album since has been the same. They are one of my favorite bands and I think they have been able to keep the same fantastic sound with every album even though they have been through different lead guitar players over the years. This is both splendid and groovy at the same time, thanks again Volbeat. If you have not listened to these guys its like Sha Na Na and Slayer did the wild thing and this is their funked up birthchild.

It's been nearly three years since Volbeat released Beyond Hell / Above Heaven (Extra Track Version), and the Danish band has certainly not been idle. The album was a huge success, thanks in equal parts to extremely catchy and unique metal songs and almost nonstop touring, especially in the US. Now the band is back with their highly anticipated follow-up. Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is their fifth album overall, and it is the first Volbeat album to feature former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano, who replaces Thomas Bredahl on lead guitar. Caggiano also produced the album alongside Jacob Hansen.

On Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies (and how great is that title, by the way?), Volbeat's core sound - that unique mix of Metallica, Johnny Cash, Social Distortion and Motorhead - is very much intact. As with Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, there's a major focus on melody and enough radio-friendly rock songs to balance the album's heavier tracks. You can tell right off that "Lola Montez" and "Cape of Our Hero" are this album's "Heaven Nor Hell" and "Fallen," and the surprising but wickedly infectious cover of Young the Giant's "My Body" has the potential to be a huge radio hit.

Beyond the obvious singles, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is a very strong album full of songs that are very easy to get into. The band knows exactly where the line should be between heaviness and melody on each song, so you'll get a full-on Metallica thrasher like "Doc Holliday" after a more radio-friendly song like "The Sinner Is You," and a song like "The Hangman's Body Count," which sounds like it could have been written by (or for) Johnny Cash, right after the darker "Room 24" and before "My Body.
