Band of Volunteers

COUNTRY: Norway

STYLE: Hard Rock

PROFILE: Formed in Norway in 2006, Band Of Volunteers to date has three studio albums out: “Two Faces” (2007), “Sweet Lies” (2008), and “A Rock Romanticism” (2009). “Divination” is, unsurprisingly, the band’s fourth release and the first with bassist Andreas Johansen.

The band’s sound is somewhere between hard and alt rock, with a classical heavy metal vibe (if not the all-out volume) guiding things along. They are riff heavy with the guitar always way out front in the mix, perhaps nodding to the White Stripes; even if their actual sound is quite dissimilar. The drums and bass are there, though the rhythms certainly take a back seat behind the guitars and singing. The vocals are shouty, tuneful enough and fit in well with the character of the music.
