I honestly cannot recommend this enough.

I would just like to say this right from the off; if you are a Volbeat fan you are going to love this album.

In the past, the band stood out because they combined different elements of music; Rock, Metal, Country and Hillbilly. While it was good and I liked it, sometimes it lost a little direction and focus. Now I could be wrong here, but I think the addition of Rob Caggiano has galvanised that sound, so that you know exactly where you are. The opening track, 'The Devil's Bleeding Crown', absolutely leaps out of the speakers at you and 'Marie Laveau' is a good solid Rocker. In fact, after listening to all the songs just once, I realised that every song on here is memorable and enjoyable.

'For Evigt' features John Olsen, the chorus is sung in Danish and the middle eight features banjo, which sounds great; don't think I have ever said that about banjo music before! 'The Gates Of Babylon' sounds nothing like Rainbow but is superb nonetheless, while 'Black Rose' which features Danko Jones sounds nothing like Thin Lizzy, but, well, you know the rest. And mentioning similar song titles, there are two covers on here which fit the mood of the album perfectly. 'Rebound', a Teenage Bottlerocket song, has a lot of humour but on this occasion, unfortunately, is included as a tribute to a fellow musician no longer with us. The other, 'Battleship Chains', is a 1986 song originally released by The Woods (also covered by numerous others) that I didn't recognise but my partner did.

I was going to say that possibly, but only just, the one song that shoots under the bar, but only just, is final track 'The Loa's Crossroad', but really this would be unfair as it's not a bad track at all, rather just not quite as strong as the others.

As I said earlier, I may be wrong in saying that Caggiano is the reason that this album is such an improvement on previous tomes, but we all know that a different ingredient in a mixture usually alters the flavour. The flavour though hasn't really altered, just got stronger.

Whether a Volbeat fan or not, you will enjoy this. I honestly cannot recommend this enough. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
