EDITORS’ NOTES

All of Volbeat’s loves—heavy metal, hard rock, punk, rockabilly—can be found on their fourth album, only this time they’re tossed into a blender and set on high. Riveting new concoctions abound as “The Mirror and the Ripper” sets massive, churning power chords atop hot-rod swing, while “7 Shots” opens with bluegrass banjo before erupting into groove-metal and majestic twin leads. "Evelyn” may be the most extreme track, boasting throat-shredding, grindcore growls and hooks so heroic they’d be at home on a Thin Lizzy record.
