    Anyone like these guys? Can't decide if I do or not. Can only take the lead singer's voice in small doses, especially with his James Hetfield 'yah' at the end of each sentence.

    Dig em musically, and I guess the lead dude is growing on me because I keep coming back to them.

    Just wondering if anyone out there likes Volbeat.

    Good group. Very wide range of styles from country to death metal.

    This is the first time I see a video of what they look like. I always imagine the lead singer looking like Elvis :jj:

    I dig this song by them. They're a tight band and they know how to play their instruments.

    I'm not sure if I'd handle a full album of them, but every time I hear their songs I enjoy it.

    I love metal music and Johnny Cash and these guys are a blend of both. One of the better new bands that have come out in awhile. The Hetfieldish 'yah can get annoying, but for the most part I can look past here. I love this song, as it hits home for me.

    About 2 years ago, I was working freelance for an online metal magazine. One of the assignments I got, was to shoot an interview with the guitarist of Volbeat. They were playing a gig at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, Ca. Didn't know much about the music at the time, other than they had a HUGE following which I would see first hand at the show. Interviewed him on their tour bus; that went well but once they got onstage, they blew me away. I thought the band was tight and their energy was great. Their audience is a whole other animal...a lot of babes, great vibe. Overall I think they're better live than on CD. They're good.
