Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen recently spoke to Chuck Armstrong on the Loudwire Nights’ show and opened about his plans to bring old-school death metal back with his new releases. He explained how he feels about what he is creating by saying:
“It really feels good. It’s like jumping on your bike again that’s been standing in the garage for many years. You’ve just been looking at it and you’ve been watching it and you’ve been talking to her like, ‘One day, I’m going to ride you again. Just wait and see.'”
Poulsen recently celebrated the release of the debut album for his new death metal band, Asinhell this past Friday. The singer also told Chuck about the new album ‘Impii Hora’ and how it took him back to his roots. He expressed:
“Some people might not know that back in the day, I was actually playing death metal. I was 10 when I discovered classic heavy metal and probably around 13 when I discovered extreme music. I started my own death metal band in 1990. That’s over 30 years ago.”
The rocker recently was also a guest on Full Metal Jackie‘s weekend radio show to promote the new record. Michael revealed some of the bands that have been his influences since day one. He expressed:
“Forming my first death metal band Dominus back in the day, the inspiration was definitely the same inspiration as I have today. It was Death, Autopsy, early Darkthrone, Benediction, Grave, Entombed, Dismember, Obituary and those kinds of bands. And those are also still the bands that are my main influence when I write songs for Asinhell as well.”
