Some­thing hits you dur­ing the first minute of this epic live DVD and CD set from Dan­ish rock­ers Vol­beat: in their home­land, the slick-haired rock­a­billy met­allers are mas­sive. Let’s Boo­gie cap­tures them play­ing to nearly 50,000 fans at a sta­dium that’s nor­mally home to Den­mark’s na­tional foot­ball team. This is a pin-sharp, py­roen­hanced cel­e­bra­tion of the band’s suc­cess, and boasts a mam­moth 26 songs. Such profli­gacy has the down­side of high­light­ing how same-sound­ing much of it is, but you for­get that when Na­palm Death’s Bar­ney Green­way makes an up­roar­i­ous guest ap­pear­ance on Eve­lyn. Lars Ul­rich’s star turn – play­ing drums on a cover of En­ter Sand­man – is an­other treat, and it’s fun to hear him speak­ing to the crowd in his na­tive Dan­ish. The rea­sons for Vol­beat’s im­men­sity may elude some, but those who have fol­lowed them this far will find their faith gen­er­ously re­warded here. STEVE BEEBEE
