Bullet - Live 2LP
UNIQUE SELLING POINTS ARE EASY TO FIND WHEN IT COMES TO SWEDISH ACT BULLET. THE MOST REMARKABLE FEATURE OF THE FIVE-PIECE SURROUNDING VOCALIST HELL HOFER AND GUITARIST HAMPUS KLANG IS OBVIOUS: BULLET COMBINE CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY HEAVY METAL ARRANGEMENTS WITH THE TRUE VALUES OF THEIR GENRE AND A PASSION THAT IS HARD TO FIND ELSEWHERE. “There aren’t many bands these days that have what should be obvious: a wall of Marshalls, long hair, an old tour bus, and who play 100% live without using backing tracks or stuff like that,” explains Hampus Klang, together with Hofer not only one of the group’s creative minds but, also one of its founder members. And what better way to present the one and only true rock’n’roll philosophy than a live album? Because when it comes to that decisive spark which never fails to turn metal fans into Bullet enthusiasts, all that Klang, Hofer, Alexander Lyrbo (guitar), Gustav Hector (bass) and Gustav Hjortsjö (drums) need to do is enter the stage and really let rip. That’s when the band ignites that inferno which has wrecked countless clubs, halls and festival stages – musically speaking, of course. To document how the band’s wild shows sound – recorded for posterity –, their first live release will be out soon under the succinct title Live. The reasons for this straightforward moniker are obvious: Bullet don’t require spectacular marketing concepts, they impress with their sheer talent.
