Ever wanted to find out what inspired a particular song?
Was it based on personal experience or simply passive observation?
What happened in the recording studio or on stage to make one song sound different from the rest?
These are just some of the question bands and musicians attempt to answer in Line 'em Up - the newest page of The Power Of Metal.Dk.
This is where your favourite bands comment on their albums, track by track, because as someone once said, “Ideas are the building blocks of ideas”.
Here’s a chance for you to tell our readers about
your debut album “Nothing Remains”.
Our debut album “Second Chance” from 2009 was made in collaboration with producer Tommy Hansen and was well received by the music critics. The “GAFFA” wrote “ The debut album from Bullet Train Blast came as a long awaited prayer to all GUNS N' ROSES fans”.
Tommy Hansen also produced the bands E.P “ Waste of Time” from 2010. Of which a song “Give it a try” was used by the national Danish TV channel TV2. This was broadcast throughout their entire showing of the 2010 world cup football tournament.
In relation to this ROCKFREAKS wrote an article about the E.P saying “Hands down the most promising E.P I’ve heard from a Danish rock band to date. How are they still unsigned?”
The band are no strangers regarding live performances, they have played numerous live gigs/festivals including the famous GREENLANDS TOUR. The band have also supported acts such as PRETTY MAIDS and the American group BLACK STONE CHERRY to name but a few.
This album is produced by Jacob Hansen who’s work includes Volbeat, Dune, and The Storm,and unlike our first record "Second Chance", which took us almost 2 years to write and record, the material for this album were written within 6 month and recorded in only 8 days. We wanted to make a straight rock n' roll record, and I think that we succeed. The album was released in Denmark on 16.1.2012 by TARGET RECORDS and reached number 13 at the Danish chart.
