If you only choose to see one metal show in your entire life, this should be the one. Tuesday, August 17th, Volbeat is crossing the Atlantic from Denmark to play at The Mod Club, 722 College Street.
Last Friday, this metal music examiner caught Michael, Volbeat’s front man and lead singer, on his cell phone, to talk about the band’s show at The Mod Club. Michael said, ”we are still finishing our European summer tour and we haven’t yet planned the details of our shows in Canada and the US, but I am looking forward meet the local fans in person and, hopefully, get the time to have some beer with them.”
Check out Volbeat on Myspace or via the band’s website. Also, watch the video below and get familiar with their unique and almost Elvis-like rock’n’roll / metal sound.
Volbeat and Toronto
Volbeat has played in Toronto before, however, the next show will be the four band members’ first as a headlining band. Volbeat has opened for both Nightwish and Metallica.
When asked what his first thoughts are, when you mention ”Toronto,” Michael said ”Metallica” and elaborated, ”last time we visited, we opened for Metallica and I remember Toronto for the city’s great audience. I’m very curious to see how many that will return to see us the 17th of August, and I really hope to get a chance to speak with people after the show.”
Volbeat’s live show
Volbeat is well-known for having a close relationship to their fans; e.g. they have had a fan accepting a music award, on their behalf, at a Danish award ceremony. Live, the band is known to quickly build up an ecstatically positive mood via their spiffy metal’n’roll songs and bold dialogues with the audience.
When asked what the Toronto audience can expect from Volbeat, Michael answered, ”they can expect a humble band that is thrilled to perform and loves to be in close contact with its audience. Moreover, they can expect a lot of positive energy plus a mix of several different music styles, ranging from rock’n’roll to metal and hard rock to country.”
Finally, Michael promised, “I will guarantee that when people leave our show, they will have had a great time and think to themselves: this is something I’ve never heard or seen before.”
