Michael Poulsen of Volbeat Talks to WGRD About Music, Guest Musicians, and Touring the U.S.

This Sunday, right before the Five Finger Death Punch/Volbeat/Hellyeah/Nothing More show, I got the opportunity to meet and talk with Michael of Volbeat.  He's a really nice guy, and took time to sit down with me during another band's sound check to talk music.

Hailing from Denmark, Volbeat has really taken the rock and metal world by storm, with a string of hit songs, including, "Fallen", "Still Counting", "A Warrior's Call", "Lola Montez", "Dead But Rising", and "The Hangman's Body Count".
