CALGEPO - 05.09.2019 -
Over the course of a well-stocked discography, Volbeat has created a sound of its own in which traditional rock blends with hard and pop. Still focused on melodic research, the new album, whose name forms a triptych "Rewind.Replay.Rebound" that calls for nostalgia, will not shake what the band has built over the years.

This rewinding starts off with a "Last Day Under The Sun" with US rock accents that Volbeat has been adding to his work for a long time. The chorus is catchy especially with the irresistible choral spirit at the very end. This mix of genres is embodied in the next title "Pelvis On Fire", a kind of boogie rock supercharged with growth hormones that squash everything in its path. We feel a deep respect of the band for the traditional rock that the quartet tries to get out of mothballs by adding a metal touch in the last third of the track. This powerful rock'n roll base is found on a multitude of tracks on the album ('Sorry Sack Of Bones','Cheapside Sloggers') where the classic but classy riffs make you nostalgic with a very modern energy carried by Michael Poulsen's powerful voice. Having two guitars makes it possible to add weight to the already solid rhythmic while enamelling the songs with short, well-packed solos. 

If the album is cruelly lacking in surprises, one can only bow to Volbeat's science to produce heady tracks that immediately come to mind ('Cloud 9') or even gently folk ballads such as "7:24" which with its few country rock finery lets the imagination wander in the great American spaces. The nostalgia evoked in the title of the album is perfectly embodied in the well named "When We Were Kids" with its simple melody anchored in the 80s, without falling into the disgusting melody.  

Listening to this new album, the listener is rejuvenated. Even if it lacks originality or great evolution, it will certainly satisfy the fans of the band and even allow Volbeat to win new ones thanks to its constant accessibility and its writing quality.
