Rising Danish/American rock and rollers Volbeat have released the official music video for their song “Temple Of Ekur”. The dramatic clip, which was directed by Shan Dan and VisualHype, can be seen below.

“Temple Of Ekur” is taken from Volbeat’s eighth studio album, the critically-acclaimed Servant Of The Mind, which was released in December 2021 via Republic Records.

Revolver called Servant Of The Mind “excellent… the darkest and heaviest Volbeat offering yet.” For the album, the band, which consists of Michael Poulsen (guitar, vocals), Larsen, Rob Caggiano (guitars) and Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), took its signature heavy metal, psychobilly and punk ‘n’ roll sound up a notch while this time concentrating on frontman Poulsen’s keen ability for songwriting and storytelling. “Rarely has such a successful band sounded so ravenous,” says Kerrang! magazine of the album.

Servant Of The Mind was written and recorded during the shutdown and quarantine necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The album also includes the “double barrel” of summer songs the band released last June: “Wait A Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før” (featuring Stine Bramsen), the former of which became the band’s ninth number one single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

For Servant Of The Mind, the Danish/American quartet took their signature heavy metal, psychobilly and punk ‘n’ roll sound up a notch while showcasing Poulsen’s keen ability for songwriting and storytelling.

“I wrote the whole album in three months,” recalled Poulsen, “I was in a good place and mood while at home, and had a captive audience of myself… There are a lot of Volbeat signatures in it. If you go back to the first record and compare it to where we are now, you can hear how the band has developed its style, while keeping the signature sound.”
