NEWS: HAIL OF BULLETS' New Album Title and Cover Artwork Revealed

Dutch death metallers Hail of Bullets, known for their war-themed musical dabblings, comprising of Gorefest drummer Ed Warby, Thanatos guitarists Stephan Gebédi and Paul Baayens, and prolific vocalist Martin Van Drunen (of Pestilence and Asphyx fame) and former Houwtiser bass player Theo van Eekelen, are slated to release their third studio effort, titled 'III: The Rommel Chronicles', this fall via Metal Blade Records. This latest effort was recorded at Sandlane Studios in Rijen, Netherlands with Swedish producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö, who has previously fronted such acts as Edge of Sanity, Bloodbath and Nightingale.

The landing page featuring a full new song, track listing and pre-order options is to be launched next Monday, September 9th. Swanö stated about the new Hail of Bullets album  "Hail of Bullets return for their third album, armed to the teeth with a thunderous death metal onslaught that combines the raw ferocity of the first album with the more expanded arrangements of the second. A death metal masterpiece!" 

Hail of Bullets' debut album '…Of Frost And War' was a concept album about the Eastern front war of Germany. As for 'On Divine Winds', this was yet another concept effort, chronicling the Pacific battles between Japan and the USA. The album title 'On Divine Winds' is a translation of the Japanese word "kamikaze," as kami translated to "God" and kaze means "wind."

Hail of Bullets' current line-up is as follows 
Martin Van Drunen - Vocals 
Paul Baayens - Guitar 
Stephan Gebédi - Guitar 
Theo Van Eekelen - Bass 
Ed Warby - Drums
