Am I really doing this, I guess so. A cat video.
I just Volbeated you guys up. On another note I managed to get 5 mp3’s to post. Didn’t want to keep going to see when it stopped me, but good to know.

Heavy Metal Elvis
A few months ago a good friend gave me some tickets to a metal festival. I knew the headliner, Avenged Sevenfold, but had never heard of the other bands before, because obviously I’m old. I went to the show and it wasn’t long until I realized why I had never heard of the other bands (yawn). Finally it was down to the last three bands and I was hopeful these would be better.
The first up out of the three was Haelstorm(?). If it wasn’t for the drummer, this would have been painful. At this point I had lost hope and when I heard the next band was called Volbeat, my thoughts immediately went negative. I mean what the hell is a Volbeat? It sounded like a band from Tennessee that really loved their college football team. And then they started playing. What is this?! Is that HEAVY METAL ELVIS?! And just like that I was hooked. The singer sounded like a cross between Danzig and Elvis and I guess himself, but it was awesome. They played a unique blend of punk, metal, rockabilly, country.. it was hard to explain but man did it sound good. I was on my feet the entire set and couldn’t believe these guys snuck past me. when they finished, I was sad, I wanted more. Avenged Sevenfold came on and I THOUGHT the good time was about to continue, but funny enough, the one band I thought was going to be good, couldn’t stop posing long enough to actually play their instruments well. And well, they pretty much sucked big time.
While I lost all respect for Avenged Sevenfold, I went out and bought all the Volbeat albums and they haven’t left my cd player since. It’s been a long while since I attached to a band like this but the nostalgia and their uniqueness have completely grown on me and if I missed these guys, maybe you missed these guys too, if that music is your thing. I’m posting a few songs from my collection and that should be enough to see what I was saying.
