Volbeat's latest album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies," features a guest appearance from the legendary King Diamond.

Today, King Diamond and Volbeat are pleased to release the Jacob Hansen mastered version of this track, titled "Room 24", as a FREE download gift to the fans. Get the song at this location.

The track "Room 24" features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, and one of Poulsen's musical idols. Volbeat reveals, "I'm a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it's not something he does. He wrote his own lines, and it is half my lyrics and half his. It's a weird, scary story, and he's the perfect person for it."

Volbeat is getting a lot of air play lately. Vocals remind me of LOA at times.

I like this song quite a bit. Good to balance out the over-poppy first single they released a video for. Finally gonna see them Wednesday!

Cool track, just can't get into the Volbeat guy's voice. King owns this song. Can't wait for the King to tour again in the states.
