Volbeat Are the Second Artist This Week to Release a New Song Called “Parasite”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Although it’s surely just a coincidence, Volbeat are now the second artist this week to release a new song called “Parasite.” The first, of course, was Cynic’s Paul Masvidal.

As you would expect, the two tracks sound nothing alike. For starters, Volbeat’s song is very upbeat, whereas Masvidal’s was depressing AF. Also notable: the Volbeat track comes in at a grindcore-friendly length of 38 seconds (although it’s definitely not a grindcore song). Which is probably why I like it so much more than any other Volbeat song I’ve ever heard.

Check out Volbeat’s “Parasite” below. The band should have a new album out later this year, upon which there will presumably be some longer ditties as well.
