Product Description

Volbeat have refined their highly original mix of passionate riffs and haunting melodies even more, getting straight to the point. Mind you, the band has pursued the idea of transporting the values and achievements of the Fifties into our times ever since the beginning of their career. Band mastermind Michael Poulsen may have been a member of death metal act Dominus, but has concentrated on Volbeat since 2001. The group's success speaks for itself: their 2005 debut "The Strength/The Sound/The Songs" was still considered an insider tip, but the breakthrough arrived in 2007 with "Rock The Rebel/Metal The Devil". The music press was delighted, showering the band with top marks. In addition, the quartet made the top of the Danish charts, even garnering a platinum award in their native country. This fact did not remain hidden from the giants of the rock industry. When Metallica were looking for an act to open their 2007 gig in Aarhus, they opted - at James Hetfield's request - for Volbeat! This kick-started the band's career - one tour followed the other, the venues becoming bigger and bigger.

About the Artist

Volbeat are sick and tired of music purists wagging their finger at them. They refuse to be confined to the pigeonhole of a specific genre but throw off all fetters intended to keep them on the ground. In the past four years, this thoroughly honest attitude has made the four musicians from Denmark one of the hottest acts on the rock scene. Sold-out venues everywhere, celebrated festival appearances at the Rock am Ring festival, during the Sonisphere Festival Tour, and opening for Metallica and AC/DC - and now they're about to release their latest album "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven".

13 September will see the arrival of the 13-track recording, and as they did on their previous four releases, the band has succeeded again in combing the sound of the Fifties with that metal flair. If you were to draw a picture of Volbeat's sound, it would feature Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Metallica - all of them peacefully united, cool drink in hand. "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven" is a perfect mix of heavy riffs, country coolness and rockabilly hip swing. The result makes not only the heart of a headbanger, but also that of a quiff wearer beat faster. Fans of anthemnic oeuvres are likely to press the Repeat button to listen to "Fallen" again, those more into quiet sounds will love "Heaven Nor Hell", while up-tempo buffs will get down to business listening to "A Warrior's Call".

To cut a long story short: Volbeat have refined their highly original mix of passionate riffs and haunting melodies even more, getting straight to the point. Mind you, the band has pursued the idea of transporting the values and achievements of the Fifties into our times ever since the beginning of their career. Band mastermind Michael Poulsen may have been a member of death metal act Dominus, but has concentrated on Volbeat since 2001.
