Volbeat is very young, but Volbeat is very mighty. This band has not hit its prime and yet the Gears of Rock considers this band to be one of the all-time greatest. Volbeat is ranked #81 on the Gears of Rock’s Top 100 Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Bands of All-Time Countdown. These Danish rockers are hard, heavy, and melodic. They have a unique 50’s throwback feel and every song in their catalog is a hit. The band has released four solid studio albums since 2005, each one stronger than the last, defying the law of diminishing marginal returns. The best songs by Volbeat are “Still Counting,” “The Human Instrument,” “Pearl Hart,” “A Warrior’s Call,” “Pool of Bozze, Booze, Booza,” “Fallen,” “Heaven Nor Hell,” “Guitar Gangsters and Cadillac Blood,” “Lola Montez,” “The Mirror and the Ripper,” and “Maybellene I Hofteholder.”
