Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen
told Scotty Mars of The Scotty Mars Show
, which airs on the Live 105 radio station in Halifax, Canada.
"I've always been very interested in the spiritual world and all those kinds of things. Also dark, spiritual things… I guess it's just something that a lot of guys in the metal and rock scene are very into. I just remember very interested in it since I was a teenager, seeing a lot of horror movies, which I still do. But as I do believe in the spirit world, it is a very interesting world, because it has a very strong power. And the song 'Marie Laveau', it's not that much about her; it's more me trying to bring her back to life to use her spiritual powers to get in contact with my dead father."
