Volbeat: Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood

Danish metal? You mean that there are others besides Lars Ulrich making a lot of noise? When you have living under a rock for the last two years or so you missed the rise of Volbeat, a quartet form Copenhagen who released two critically acclaimed albums and a rather good live DVD.

Their new one entitled Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood is their most ambitious album so far, with seven songs making up a loosely told tale about a singer who got shot in the desert and was left there to join the great band in the heavens. He survived and now he stares down from the stage each night hoping to spot the culprit in the audience.

Volbeat is a band that will be loved by the denimn trousers/black T-shirt youth, with their parents nodding approvement in the back of the hall. They have heard it all before; the over the top vocals, the power chords and the drummer working his ass off (he is lot better than Lars, though). Metal heads don't want change, and Volbeat delivers the goods.
