Rob Caggiano Enjoys Pushing Boundaries With Volbeat

(Classic Rock) Rob Caggiano says he is loving life with Volbeat and being part of a band which is not afraid to push the boundaries and try something new. The guitarist, formerly of thrash-metal legends Anthrax, has slotted seamlessly into the band who have blended unusual instruments and a western vibe into their recent Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies record.

He tells Artist Direct: "One thing about Volbeat is there are no rules or boundaries. It's all about trying different things. Who would ever think to put a banjo on a f***ing heavy metal song?

"It works great, especially considering the lyrical theme of this album and the western vibe of the whole thing. That's also a production question. It's having the ear to see how it works or how it doesn't work as well as how it fits together in the big picture. I've been doing that for a really long time. I guess I'm used to it." He goes on to explain how he joined the band.
