9. Let’s Boogie! Live From Telia Parken (2018)

Volbeat - Let's Boogie! (Live From Telia Parken) [2 CD] - Amazon.com Music

“It is rare that I can sit and watch a concert video from stat to finish without fast forwarding a song or two, but VOLBEAT – Let’s Boogie! Live from Telia Parken is a concert I can watch from start to finish. The audio and video quality are excellent and I had no problems playing on my XBox. The set list has most of the songs that I have enjoy the most from Volbeat and are true to the way they were released originally. I have been looking for a Blu-Ray from Volbeat that had songs from the past and newer release.”

8. Rewind, Replay, Rebound (2019)

“Great addition to Volbeat’s album lineup. All the songs flow pretty well together while generating a fresh sound for the band. As a heavy Volbeat fan I’m probably not alone in saying I’m waiting for another Cadillac Gangsters album but this album still delivers. Poulsen’s vocals are incredibly recorded with some cameo performances as usual. The band got pretty creative with instrumentals on this one and overall the album keeps you entertained through the whole hour as previously I found myself skipping some songs on seal the deal.”

7. Hokus Bonus (2020)

“I love Volbeat. I was lukewarm after the first singles dropped to the prospect of the new album. That was unwarranted. Volbeat continue on the trajectory they’ve established over the last decade, and the songwriting is top notch all throughout. “

6. The Strength/The Sound/The Songs (2005)

“Great, great music! The catchy melodies are surrounded by the force of thrashy riffs worthy of any band within heavy metal. Elvis meets Metallica in the best possible way on this debut album by the on the other hand rather experienced guys in Volbeat. Both fans of old school rock, thrash, rock n’ roll, and traditional metal should like this album, which has been highly acclaimed by the Danish crowd and newspapers.”

5. Rock The Rebel/Metal The Devil (2007)

“The second Volbeat release is one of the best heavy metal/hard rock albums in XXI century. Can you imagine band where Elvis play with James Hetfield? i can’t until i didn’t hear Volbeat. Very good production guitars sound very concrete and genuinely drum is the separate topic it is real knock out. Great Stuff. Highly recommended.”

4. Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie (2016)

Volbeat - Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie - Amazon.com Music

“The album is well produced, featuring a powerful and clear sound. It´s relatively polished, and I wouldn´t go down a more polished production road in the future, but this production is to my ears effectful and raw enough. Volbeat hit the hard balance between hard rock and heavy metal pretty well and with “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie” they should appeal to quite a few mainstream music listeners, who would not normally enjoy heavy rock / metal. Simply because the music is so catchy and easily accessible and the heavy riffs and rhythms are just part of the deal”

3. Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood (2008)

Volbeat – Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood (2008, DK, CD) - Discogs

“A bit slower in overall tempo than Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil, but still true to its aims; a perfect blend of rockabilly and metal. Each song is heavy and harmonious. The focus is tighter than in their first album, but somehow not as put together as their second. How long can a band like this continue? I don’t know. I can see how this could get old over time, but for now it is perfect. Yes, it is commercial, but hell, we all gotta eat. Oh and I loved the reference to Tom Ripley on Back to Prom. Put me in mind of Excitable Boy and another failed Prom.”

2. Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies (2013)

Outlaw gentlemen & shady ladies | Volbeat CD | EMP

“Well, it’s Volbeat, you should know what to expect. And they didn’t fail on my expectations that much. I’m not a big fan, but their music usually makes me in a good mood. So that’s pretty much what this album does as well, even though the band has now taken the final step to be totally mainstream and poppy metal. This album is quite much softer than the previous ones, and I would say the metal edge starts lacking from quite many of their songs nowadays.”

1. Beyond Hell / Above Heaven (2010)

Beyond Hell / Above Heaven - Album by Volbeat | Spotify

“Beyond Hell / Above Heaven is the 4th album from Volbeat. The title refers to the overall theme of the album, continuing the storyline of “Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood”. This album is a really nice mix between metal, rock ‘n Roll, and alternative rock. I have to say every Volbeat album is better than its predecessor and you can definitely hear the growth with every album.”
