Mark “Barney” Greenway of British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH will join Danish metal rock ‘n’ rollers VOLBEAT on stage this coming Saturday, October 29 at the HMV Forum in London, England to perform the VOLBEAT track “Evelyn”.
In April 2011 interview with Straight.com, VOLBEAT vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen spoke about Barney‘s appearance on the studio version of “Evelyn”, which appears on the band’s fourth album, “Beyond Hell/Above Heaven”.
“Writing a song like ‘Evelyn’ was my way of showing people that it was not only the ’50s elements we were inspired by, but we were actually growing up with a lot of great metal bands,” Michael said. “And NAPALM DEATH was one of the first extreme metal bands I was listening to — I was listening to them when I bought my first guitar. So being able to have a singer like Barney from NAPALM DEATH on my record was a real accomplishment. It’s great to see that it’s actually possible for dreams to come true, in a way.”
VOLBEAT will release “Live From Beyond Hell/Above Heaven” in Europe on November 21 via Vertigo/Universal on double DVD, Blu-ray, limited double DVD + audio CD, CD, digital download and VOD.
