Volbeat are rolling with 'Lola Montez,' but they had a close scare from Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, who came up just a few percentage points shy of overtaking the returning champs. Now, aiming for their third straight Cage Match victory, can Volbeat be stopped?
Stone Sour entered the Cage Match with 'Tired' and knocked off the previous victor -- Sevendust's 'Picture Perfect.' It was definitely an impressive victory, but will Stone Sour be able to earn another win against their next opponent?
If there was any doubt left that Anthrax amicably parted ways with guitarist Rob Caggiano, this video will likely erase it. Caggiano now mans the guitar for Danish rockers Volbeat, and during the band's Sept. 16 gig in Los Angeles, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian was invited onstage to perform the Volbeat track 'Pool of Booze, Booze, Booza,' which was preceded by a small piece of Anthrax's 'I Am the Law.'
Day 1 of the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, featuring Korn, Megadeth and Shinedown, would be a tough act to follow. But leave it to Avenged Sevenfold to lead a Day 2 attack that was nothing short of breathtaking.
In the world of metal, the first big story of 2013 was the announcement that guitarist Rob Caggiano had left Anthrax. No longer attaining happiness from his time with the legendary thrash band, Caggiano left and began to focus on producing records. Caggiano's first project since his Anthrax departure was to man to board for Volbeat's newest album, 'Outlaw Gentleman & Shady Ladies,' but he also ended up joining Volbeat as a full-time member.
When listening to Danish act Volbeat, it's clear that the band was influenced by great number of bands and genres, and frontman Michael Poulsen says that fellow Danish rocker King Diamond and his influential band Mercyful Fate are among the acts that truly inspired him.
For anyone that had seen Volbeat live, it’s obvious that the band puts their all into their performance, and the Danish rockers have been pouring everything they have onstage while on the road promoting their latest album, ‘Outlaw Gentleman & Shady Ladies.’
This summer's Monster Energy Rock Allegiance Tour, featuring the international lineup of Volbeat, HIM, All That Remains and Airbourne, has unveiled several more dates of its itinerary. The trek now spans from Aug. 23 through Sept. 28.
