Bullet Gearing Up For ‘Storm Of Blades’ Release
June 15, 2014
On September 5th the new Bullet album called ‘Storm Of Blades’ will hit stores. It is their fifth long-player and the first featuring the band’s new guitarist Alexander Lyrbo, who replaced Erik Almstrom in 2012.
“This is a fast and heavy back to the roots album,” the band comments. A lot of the feeling Bullet had in the beginning is there, but with a up-to-date sound and craftsmanship. “Now with the young blood Alex on the guitar, always thirsty for metal, the songs ended up just like that: Heavier, faster and more raw than on previous albums. We can now at last truthfully say — this is our best album this far and most likely the rawest since the ‘Heavy Metal Highway’ recording in 2002.”
The album title ‘Storm Of Blades’ came up during a soundcheck before a show last year. “We wanted to make the toughest Bullet song ever and this riff popped up. The first impression was the image of knifes falling from the sky and the title ‘Storm Of Blades’ was born. To make this song the title track of our new album became a must as it is a tale about destruction, apocalypse and horror!”
‘Storm Of Blades’ was recorded during December/January 2014 and April/May 2014 at the Pama Studio in Torsas, Sweden, was produced by Bullet and Magnus “Mankan” Sedenberg, and will be released through Nuclear Blast Records.
Right after some summer festivals and the album release, Bullet will be on the road again along with two well-chosen support bands. “Stallion and Striker will be our fellow hell raisers on the first leg, and this tour should not let a fan of heavy metal music down. We will raise hell, we will drink beer, we will bang our heads together and kill grunge… again! Prepare for the storm of blades!” A complete list of tour dates can be found at www.bulletrock.com.
