When it comes to metal, any band coming out of Denmark is met with an instant amount of shred cred--isn't metal, like, the national music over there? Not content to stick to one particular style of savagery, Volbeat offer a spleen-crushing blend of hardcore, metal and rockabilly that started to make major waves in America with their 2010 American radio hit, "A Warrior's Call," off their 2010 full-length, Beyond Hell, Above Heaven. If there's any warrior in your blood, you should probably go to the the City National Grove of Anaheim and indulge your--you knew this joke was coming!--Viking tendencies.
