Volbeat Live From Beyond Hell/Above Heaven

Volbeat Live From Beyond Hell/Above Heaven
Denmark's heavy metal/rockabilly rollers Volbeat are simply one of those bands that captivate with their live performance, regardless of whether or not you know the material. It's fitting, then, that they've released a new live concert DVD, Live From Beyond Hell/Above Heaven. The DVD features concert footage from a sold-out hometown show in Copenhagen, as well as from a show at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA and from their set at Rock Am Ring in Germany. Frontman Michael Poulsen breathes blues-inspired soul into the band, while maintaining a distinct James Hetfield-style live presence on "Maybellene I Hofteholder," from 2008's Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood, as well as Dusty Springfield's "I Only Wanna Be With You." But it's fan-favourite "Pool of Booze, Booze, Booza," from their 2005 debut, The Strength / The Sound / The Songs, that is the most electrifying to watch live. With tracks dripping with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash influences, plus a stage presence that captures the heaviness of Motörhead and the punk attitude of the Misfits, Volbeat's Live From Beyond Hell/Above Heaven is a must-watch for any fan, whether they've had the pleasure of seeing these Danish lads live or not.
