From blabbermouth.net:

 

Swedish hard rockers BULLET will release their new album, "Storm Of Blades", on September 5 in Europe and Sepember 9 in North America via Nuclear Blast. The band's fifth longplayer marks the first recording to feature BULLET's new guitar player Alexander Lyrbo, who replaced Erik Almström 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”

BULLET came up with the "Storm Of Blades" album title during a soundcheck before a show last year. "We wanted to make the toughest BULLET song ever and this riff popped up," says the band. "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 Torsås, Sweden. It was produced by BULLET and Magnus "Mankan" Sedenberg.

Immediately after making several summer festival appearances and the album release, BULLET will hit the road again, with two well-chosen support bands. "STALLION and STRIKER will be our fellow hellraisers on the first leg, and this tour should not let a fan of heavy metal music down," says BULLET. "We will raise hell, we will drink beer, we will bang our heads together and kill grunge... again! Prepare for the storm of blades!"

I love Bullet but their last release was a bit of a disappointment. That being said, it wasn't enough to scare me away from the band and I will be grabbing this new release for sure.

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
