EDITORS’ NOTES

On album seven, Volbeat solidifies their long-term infatuation with rockabilly and hard rock. The Copenhagen quartet elevates their ambitions—and volume levels–with guests ranging from vocalist Mia Maja and Clutch’s Neil Fallon to saxophonist Doug Corcoran, pianist Raynier Jacob Jacildo, and the Harlem Gospel Choir. “Pelvis on Fire” is what Volbeat does so well, all greaser swagger with Marshall stacks. “Die to Live” has a sustained over-the-top energy that equally recalls Jerry Lee Lewis and The Misfits. “The Everlasting” skews toward the metal edge, and “Cheapside Sloggers” features a killer solo from Exodus/Slayer guitarist Gary Holt. But for all the good times on Rewind, Replay, Rebound, the quartet can also examine deeper subjects like innocence (“When We Were Kids”) and mortality (“Last Day Under the Sun”), offering perspective as well as perspiration. The deluxe version includes five demos and three bonus tracks.

Passionate

His vocals on this album are amazing! Ripping my heart out. Sure it’s not as heavy as the past albums, but this time they gave it feels. Just when I thought they couldn’t dig deeper, they did.

Not great

I’m starting to believe this band peaked with Outlaw Gentlemen...these 2 or 3 chord “happy” sounding songs are starting to get boring as hell...where’s the darkness? The heaviness? What the hell happened to these guys? Did a little bit of commercial success really put their balls in a vice? So disappointing...

I kind of want to cry

Volbeat has been a staple band for me for that hard rockabilly metal vibe. I’ve been to 4 concerts and had my mind blown by the energy and aggressive playing of them.
Now, with the release of some of the songs on this new album, I’m taken aback. The lead singer has a voice you immediately recognize but the sound? It’s soft! So far the music has a generic rock radio vibe to it. I was going to pre-order the album but now I’m just going to wait to hear if the real Volbeat shows up.
