VOLBEAT: New Song Available For Free Download

Danish metal rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT recently entered Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark to record a song for Danish boxing champion Mikkel Kessler. Kessler is using the track, entitled "A Warrior's Call", as an intro to his fights as part of the "Super Six" tournament.

VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen is a huge boxing aficianado, so when Mikkel asked the band to write his theme song, they immediately accepted. Michael says, "'I'm a big fan of boxing and I've been following Kessler closely through the years.

"It's a huge honor to be able to support Kessler this way and be part of one of boxing's biggest events."

Mikkel Kessler is thrilled about the cooperation as he is a huge VOLBEAT fan himself. "I have been able to watch VOLBEAT live two times and they really get me going; nothing can psyche me up better than VOLBEAT," Kessler says.

"Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood", the third studio album from VOLBEAT, received a U.S. release on March 17 via Mascot Records. The follow-up to "Rock The Rebel / Metal The Devil" features 14 tracks, including a SOCIAL DISTORTION cover as a bonus cut on all editions. Seven of the songs share a common lyrical theme, which will be continued on future records, and the artwork is also based on this storyline. The CD was recorded at Hansen Studios with producer Jacob Hansen, who also worked with the group on its previous two records.

An e-card for "Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood" can be found at this location.

"Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood" was certified gold in Denmark for sales in excess of 20,000 copies less than a month after its release,. The CD entered the Danish chart at No. 1, and was beaten only by METALLICA's "Death Magnetic" in its second week of release.
