...dropped today! In short, Spaghetti Western meets Metal. Yeah, it has a couple of bubble-gum tunes on it....hell, can't blame them for trying to reach out more to the commercial side of the tracks. That being said, they have some typical kick ass joints too. On a side note new guitarist/co-producer Rob Caggiano's leads have a George Lynch (Dokken/Lynch Mob) feel, win win. Volbeat never disappoints, and I think they are going to blow up here in the states.
You can listen to some samples here.
A/S recommended tracks:
4- Dead But Rising
5- Cape Of Our Hero
7- The Hangmans Body Count (BAD ASS!)
9- Lola Montez (has a "Fallen" feel to it)
10- Black Bart
13- Doc Holiday (early 90s metal meets spaghetti western)
14- Our Loved Ones (heavy slow jam, lots of guitar riffing)
