Volbeat's Michael Poulsen Says Today's Scene Has No Soul

(Classic Rock) Volbeat's Michael Poulsen admits he gets nostalgic thinking about the "old school" days of the underground metal scene, when he was in Dominus. The vocalist recalls tape-trading, riding on his bike and pasting DIY flyers around the Danish city of Ringsted to promote his band in the 90s - and he says that the fast-paced information age has no "soul."

He tells KaaosTV: "I come from the old-school underground when there was no internet, tape-trading with my old band Dominus and a lot of old-school bands who are still here today. It's something I'm very proud of.

"We'd ride bikes, putting up black-and-white posters with glue. I kinda miss those days as a way to promote yourself. There was just a different soul about it."

Poulsen adds: "Everything's going so fast on the internet these days. It's good for some reasons, but for other reasons it's not tempting. It doesn't have a soul. These days, youngsters have a favorite band every second week. Everything is in front of them, they get everything very fast. There's not many bands that have that mystique anymore." Read more here.
