Music; Rock/Metal: Volbeat

Post by Tealc » Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:16 pm

Danish musician Michael Poulsen (formerly of death-metal band Dominus) has almost single-handedly pulled rock n roll/metal music back from the brink of oblivion with the release of his band, Volbeat's latest record, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. Inspired by the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, to name a few, Volbeat's distinctive sound makes them a joy to listen to. Surprisingly, there are also more than a few songs that they have made that are great for swing dancing. For anyone who likes this kind of music, I'd say falling in love with this band is a no-brainer. My personal favorite songs of theirs are:

Room 24
Doc Holiday
The Lonesome Rider
Pool of Booze, Booze, Booza
A Warrior's Call
16 Dollars
Heaven Nor Hell
Hallelujah Goat
Still Counting
Sad Man's Tongue

They have many, many more amazing songs in their catalog, and they're all well worth a listen. Enjoy!
