Danish metal band Volbeat has parted ways with lead guitarist Thomas Bredahl and has also shared that former Anthrax and The Damned Things guitarist Rob Caggiano has officially joined the band. His addition has proved integral to the band's ever evolving sound. Caggiano also served as producer on Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies alongside long-time production partner Jacob Hansen, who produced and mixed the band's prior four albums.
"Half of the album tracks will take you into the world of outlaw gunslinger stories sometime in the 1800s. Some of the characters are true legends, while others are fiction. The listener will hear inspiration from classic spaghetti western movies which gives you a clue to the album title and cover artwork."
"You can hear the influence of the Old West right from the start in "Let's Shake Some Dust," an evocative intro track that features harmonica from acclaimed blues harp player Paul Lamb."
One could easily make the argument that in 2013, modern rock radio is reaching the saturation point that we experienced in 1990 or so with Motley Jovi and the rest of their hair band brothers in spandex. Their level of over-exposure on the airwaves and MTV paved the way for the Alt-rock and Grunge revolution of 1991. Bands like Trixter, Tyketto and Lynch Mob came at the tail end of that scene and despite being composed of talented players who wrote solid music, they were lost in the tidal wave that washed away the old guard and transformed local punk rock kids into flannel flying rock icons. So while the industry continues to crank out a seemingly endless chain of KidNickelDusts, clearly what we need to do is to start importing hard rock bands from Denmark who sound like the sonic love child of Metallica and Godsmack, right?
Yes, yes we do.
Volbeat return in 2013 with 'Outlaw Gentleman and Shady Ladies,' the follow-up to their 2010 release 'Beyond Hell/Above...
Solid CD if you've been listening to them for awhile. It's a bit different from their previous albums in regards to "how" heavy the songs are, but still enjoyable.
The thing that corks me is that they had extra songs on a Best Buy exclusive release for the same album. I took a star off just for that. Seriously, if you limit extra content to ensure people buy it at an inflated price at another vendor, I lose respect for you. This is why people pirate.
