Added DiffLines:

* HorribleHistoryMetal: Surprisingly often, they'll have a song about a historical figure, usually titled for them (e.g. "Marie Laveau"), most notably on Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies where they do so nearly every other track ("Doc Holliday", "Lola Montez", "Black Bart", and "Pearl Hart").


* SpecialGuest: Quite a few, with notable ones being [[Music/{{Kreator}} Mille Petrozza]], [[Music/NapalmDeath Barney Greenway]], Music/KingDiamond, Danko Jones, [[Music/{{Exodus}} Gary Holt]], [[Music/{{Clutch}} Neil Fallon]], and [[Music/JungleRot Dave Matrise]].

Since they emerged with their debut album ''The Strength/The Sound/The Songs'' in 2005, they have become acclaimed by both metalheads and mainstream music critics for their [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly highly eclectic, inimitable sound]], which is not only unusual, but odd even for GenreBusting. Their music can best be described as GrooveMetal with clean vocals only, with influences from HardRock, {{Rockabilly}}, HardcorePunk, RockAndRoll, AlternativeRock, {{Country Music}}, and even Schlager. Yes, ''Schlager'', as in ''German-styled pop music''. To call them unique would be an understatement. But they still have managed to gain a large fanbase from all sorts of crowds, have had their songs played on contemporary hard rock radio stations, and haven't even managed to attract a {{Hatedom}} yet....

* GenreMashup: They've been described as everything from "Elvis metal" to "cowboy metal" to "the love child of Metallica, Slayer, and Johnny Cash."

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually at 8; despite their almost exclusive use of clean vocals, the crunchiness, speed, and savagery of their metal riffs keep them slightly above 7. That being said, they still go down to 6-7 sometimes. [[Music/NapalmDeath Barney Greenway]]'s guest appearance on "Evelyn" cranks that song up to a 9, with [[Music/{{Trivium}} Matt Heafy]]'s live performance taking it all the way up to 10.


* RevolvingDoorBand: They can't keep a lead guitarist to save their lives.

to:

* RevolvingDoorBand: They can't spent many years unable to keep a lead guitarist to save if their lives.lives depended on it. Finally came to an end with Rob Caggiano, who joined in 2013 and stuck ever since.


* MinisculeRocking: "Parasite" lasts just 38 seconds.

Anyways, after winning numerous awards in their home country of Denmark for their first album, they recorded ''Rock the Rebel/Metal the Devil'' two years later in 2007, which gained them even more praise. They still hadn't quite reached their success yet. This deal was sealed with their next album ''Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood''. With this album, Volbeat went platinum in their native nation, received an "Album of the Month" award from 5 magazines, won "Best Album of 2008" from Metal Hammer Germany and Italy, and on top of all that, the album's lead single "Still Counting" reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks List, making them one of the only metal acts ever to accomplish this feat. The metal scene began catching on to their infectious sound as well, according to their 2010 album ''Beyond Hell/Above Heaven'', which features guest appearances from Mille Petrozza of Music/{{Kreator}}, guitarist Michael Denner of Music/KingDiamond, and Mark "Barney" Greenway of Music/NapalmDeath. And speaking of King Diamond, their latest album ''Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies'' even features a song with ''the man himself''.

Volbeat (not to be confused with the {{Pokemon}} of the same name) is a popular metal band from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their name is a pormanteau of the words "volume" and "beat", both commonly used musical terms. They were formed in 2001 by former death metal singer Michael Poulsen. Fed up with his genre, he and a few former members of his band Dominus decided to create another musical ensemble. And thus, Volbeat was born. They have a very basic beginning, but Volbeat are not your typical modern metal band.
