Hail of Bullets split up...
"THE WAR IS OVER… IT IS DONE!
With sadness in our hearts, we hereby inform you that we have decided to pull the plug on Hail of Bullets. The patient had been suffering from illness for a few years already. We thought we had cut out the disease a few years ago, but apparently the tumor was more widespread than we had expected.
There are no immediate plans to resurrect the corpse…
PS: personal messages/questions about this situation will not be answered. This is it, and both you and us will have to deal with that…"
"Their 3rd full-length is pedestrian-sounding, but it's okay in my book. I'm not that impressed with the first song. I find the 2nd album to be better. Of course, the first album is obviously the best." I wish I could be 16 again.
Van Drunen is the voice of a generation. I do not follow the death metal scene anymore really, so I only just learned about this band TODAY and so I repeat, yet adapt: Van Drunen was the voice of my generation, but may become the voice of this generation as well. OMG, he is immortal!
@VerbalAbuser, this isn't the first time I've seen the reference to Bolt Thrower, and I've got to question why. Listen to Bolt Thrower's (excellent) records, and then listen to some Hail of Bullets. They sound NOTHING alike. When will certain individuals learn that lyrical content is not enough to compare bands together? The music is what's important, and they don't sound alike at all.
I hope Hail of Bullets and Asphyx come to Australia at some point. I'd be absolutely fucking bummed if I never get to see 'em live. That shit is heavier than a thousand bulldozers on CD, I can only imagine how earthquake-inducingly powerful it is live.
