Volbeat- Outlaw Gentlemen And Shady Ladies

I’ll say it. This is the best album I’ve heard this year. And it’s not even close. Where the hell did these guys come from? They have a few albums out now, and I didn’t hear of them until a couple of years ago. I heard “A Warrior’s Call” on Octane, and I said, Holy Shit! That voice! Michael Poulsen has one of the best rock voices I’ve heard. And they picked up Rob Caggiano, formerly of Anthrax, to play guitar. Maybe that’s why this album sounds so fucking heavy, but still has an element of melody to it. It’s got something for everyone. From a straight up rocker like the lead video, “Cape of Our Hero”, to eerie, creepy songs like “Room 24”, (With guest vocals from KING DIAMOND!!!), and then a sort of rockabilly, country tune, “Lonesome Rider”. Unreal. And the SINGING. Great stuff here. Pick it up, you won’t be disappointed. 110/10. Yes!
