Storm of Blades

Okay all hard rock fans! The Swedish heavy metal machine Bullet is giving us a brand new album with tons of stiff metal riffing songs. "Storm of Blades" is their fifth studio album and maybe the best album they ever done. I like this album much more than the previous disc "Full Pull" from 2012. A mix of the old classic Accept sound blended with AC/DC's groovy, dusty rhythms and spiced with some metal splash from Judas Priest.

The Växjö-based five-piece band has really done their homework well and has carved a metal product, which sounds very international durable. They doesn't sound like a AC/DC copy any more. They are now adults and have created their own hard rock sound. Hell Hofer is the characteristic vocalist and the given front man of the band. Fast guitar riffing and driven tempo with genre typical choruses. Hofer's voice sounds like if Bon Scott was re-born in a metal version. Sharp and crisp vocal chords is shooting the lyrics like an machine gun. Bullet has toured more than most of their comparable colleagues in this genre and they manage to get a big devoted fan following.

It's very easy to like this heavy metal, because they have the solid AC/DC rock n roll rhythm as the foundation. No filler tracks or boring ballads.

Full throttle straight through the disc and "Storm of Blades" is worth checking out if you are a fan of Accept, AC/DC, Judas Priest and Krokus.
