Let’s start this new project “Metal ME” with the Volbeat’s Flourish Crown Shirt. This was the first Volbeat shirt I ever purchased. And, it’s not only my first Volbeat shirt, it’s also my favorite.
Volbeat is definitely one of my forever favorite metal bands. Perhaps you’ve heard of them, or perhaps you live under a rock. Perhaps you love them, perhaps you don’t. 😛
Volbeat is a Danish rock band formed in Copenhagen in 2001. They are not a typical metal band. The group plays a catchy mix of heavy metal, rock-’n-roll and rockabilly. And I just love it! ❤ Inspired by artists as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Metallica and Slayer, they have taken the very essence of rock-’n-roll and distilled it, getting rid of all of the flotsam and jetsom, leaving behind a sound that’s as pure as it is entertaining.
Their current line-up consists of vocalist and guitarist Michael Poulsen, guitarist Rob Caggiano (who has formerly been lead guitarist of the thrash metal band Anthrax), drummer Jon Larsen and bassist Kaspar Boye Larsen.
I fell in love with Michael Poulsen (and Volbeat) from the second I heard his golden voice. And I must confess it isn’t much of a punishment to look at him putting on a show… and they know how to put on a show!
