Volbeat is a Danish heavy metal band formed in Copenhagen.

Singer Michael Poulsen first started in death metal band "Dominus". In 2000, Poulsen became fed up with death metal music and the death metal scene. This resulted in the end of Dominus. In 2001, Poulsen went on to form a new band with some friends and other former Dominus members. This was the beginning of Volbeat.

The band name Volbeat was derived from Dominus's third album name, which was called Vol.Beat (read as: Volume Beat). After selling 1,000 copies of their "Beat the Meat" demo tape, Volbeat was signed to a record deal.
