I thought for sure I’d posted here about Volbeat before. But it looks like I was wrong. Volbeat are a Danish hard rock/metal band that are like some bizarre cross between Elvis, Metallica, and Social Distortion. I know that combination doesn’t sound possible, but seriously these guys pull it off and then some. Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil, in addition to having a baddass title, has absolutely no bad songs on it…seriously not a one. I’ve got three videos for you here, laboriously culled from youtube, of my three favorite songs off Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil. If you like what you hear hit up your retailer of choice for the whole album; you won’t regret it! (I don’t own it yet but Guitar Gangster and Cadillac Blood sounds pretty awesome as well.)
1.) The Human Instrument.
2.) Sad Man’s Tongue (this is probably the most Elvis sounding song on album, great stuff)
3.) Radio Girl (this one reminds me a bit of Social Distortion)
