The Volume and The Beat

Lead, Bass and Drums: When they strike together, a high intensity crazy feeling flows up your veins and your brain's hypnotized. No worries, no thoughts; just a feeling of euphoria and images of strumming guitars and drum strokes. This is me, when I dissolve in a world of music – a world of metal.

When I talk about a few bands here— it means, there are bands that are not ordinary or extraordinary – they are something more than any adjectives could describe. Be it, Sabaton from Sweden for being a pure metal band or Poets of the fall for their alternative rock. Metallica, Elvis Presley and the Rock n Roll legends have inspired many bands. One among them is –Volbeat.

A Danish band from Copenhagen, formed in 2001 and they play Heavy Metal, Alternative Metal & Groove Metal. (PS: Vol for Volume and Beat for Beat.)

In 2005, they were a sensation with their first album The Strength/The Sound/The Songs. They also received Best Album in the Danish Metal Musik Awards the same year. Outstanding reviews spread the word further and that helped them come out with their second album in 2007— the Rebel/Metal the Devil. This was followed by Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood in 2008. This year they are working on a new album called Beyond Hell/Above Heaven.

Not many people would know about Volbeat. But those who do, will agree that the music has the punch to get you head banging and at the same time they can be the ones that leaves you foot tapping. And Michael Poulsen’s voice and experience in Death Metal, is what adds that extra punch.

I Only Wanna Be With You

Looking at the their success in 2005, they released albums in 2007 - Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil, 2008 - Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood and 2010 they are working on a new album called Beyond Hell/Above Heaven.

Waiting for the 2010 album, I am sure it would be another spectacular one.

Rock Forever \m/
