***SWEDISH CLASSIC METAL ACT'S BLISTERING 'LIVE' ALBUM RELEASED JULY 5TH ON STEAMHAMMER / SPV***

Explosive Swedish classic heavy metal five-piece Bullet have lined up the release of their first ever live album, 'Live', on Steamhammer / SPV on July 5th as a double Digipak CD, double gatefold 180 gram black vinyl LP with printed inner sleeves, (+poster + 2 CD's in cardboard sleeves), download and stream.

Bullet, who were formed in Växjö in 2001 by vocalist Hell Hofer and guitarist Hampus Klang, released their sixth studio album, 'Dust To Gold' on Steamhammer / SPV in April 2018 to huge acclaim. Classic Rock Society raved "'Dust To Gold' is a thrilling heavy rock album that delivers the goods on each of its twelve tracks of highly charged mayhem. Hofers has a truly powerful voice with a wide range and the twin guitarists of Klang and Lyrbo keep the solos and riffs coming thick and fast. They have the energy of AC/DC, the power of Iron Maiden and the songs of Judas Priest. Come on, what's not to like here?". Fireworks Magazine's Steve Price stated that "From the opener 'Speed And Attack', through the powerful 'Fuel The Fire' through the slightly slower 'Wildfire', I love this album!".



Bullet's incendiary live set has been keenly honed down from touring most European countries several times, opening for AC/DC in front of 55,000 people (in 2009) and performing at some of Europe's most prestigious festivals, including Rock Am Ring, Graspop, Sweden Rock, Rock Hard, Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Wacken (twice). Hampus Klang states "For so many years people have asked us to do a live album, and now after six full-length studio releases we felt the time was right. The main part was recorded in Germany. It's a mixture of three gigs from our 2017 'Storm Of Blades' tour and the 'Dust To Gold' tour in 2018. Both were filled with headbanging maniacs who thirsted for heavy metal and a good time. We also used recording devices in the crowd to capture the true heavy metal experience of a live Bullet show. 'Live' consists of 18 original numbers, no covers. It´s a mix of all our previous tracks since the first mini-album in 2003. These are our live favourites from the many years on the road, including five songs from our most recent album 'Dust To Gold', which really satisfied both us and the fans"



'Live', which contains a 'best-of' mix of Bullet's exhilarating melodious rock anthems, was recorded by Bullet's live technician Dennis Åhman and Arne Lakenmacher (Annihilator, Doro, Axel Rudi Pell) and then mixed by Mankan Sedenberg (Crucified Barbara, The Flower Kings) at the Pama Studios in Torsås, Sweden, and mastered by Maxe Axelsson (Karmakanic, among others).

Reflecting on any significant differences between the studio recordings and the new live versions, Klang concludes "We've played many of the songs countless times, which has given the material new life and new energy. Because we've toured so much, we have developed great communication skills on stage. This allows us to experiment with band presentations and awesome jam sessions. When we play live on a big stage, the raw energy makes the sound heavier and wilder. So yes, the songs are faster, harder and longer!"



Line-Up:
Alexander Lyrbo (guitars)
Hampus Klang (guitars)
Gustav Hector (bass)
Hell Hofer (vocals)
Gustav Hjortsjö (drums)

*** JESUS CHRÜESLER SUPERCAR ADDED AS SPECIAL GUESTS @ SWEDISH METAL ACT'S 02 ACADEMY ISLINGTON GIG MAY 16TH***

Swedish death 'n' roll trio Jesus Chrüesler Supercar have been confirmed as Special Guest act at Swedish heavy metal five-piece Bullet's upcoming 02 Islington Academy headline gig on May 16th.

Jesus Chrüsler Supercar's second album, '35 Supersonic', released in April 2016 on Rodeostar / SPV, is a ferocious yet melodious, thoroughly uninhibited, storming mix of rock, punk, doom and death metal. Vive Le Rock's Pete Craven reviewed in the magazine's May 2016 issue stating; "This Stockholm trio comes hot rodding down the highway revved up on a tank full of noxious hard 'n' heavy rocking, sounding like a high speed collision between early days Entombed and 'Supershitty' era Hellacopters. Full blooded, thunderous riffage and bellowing hoarse vocals is the order of the day. '35 Supersonic' proves to be 11 tracks that are positively turned up to the hallowed 11, from opener 'Let It Roll' through to the closing 'I Gotta Go' (one of my choice picks of the album)."



Bullet's stonking sixth studio album, 'Dust To Gold', set for release on Steamhammer / SPV on April 20th has already won a host of rave reviews; Fireworks Magazine's Steve Swift states in the current Spring 2018 issue that "From the opener 'Speed And Attack', through the powerful 'Fuel The Fire', to the slightly slower 'Wildfire', I love this album! The title track and the aforementioned 'Wildfire' have an almost Heaven & Hell feel about them. It's classic eighties metal (or Rock – call it what you like), but with a solid production sound that brings the whole style up to date."

Classic Rock Society's Terry Craven proclaimed in the March & April 2018 issue that "'Dust To Gold' is a thrilling heavy rock album that delivers the goods on each of its twelve tracks of highly charged mayhem. Hofers has a truly powerful voice with a wide range and the twin guitars of Klang and Lyrbo keep the solos and riffs coming thick and fast. They have the energy of AC/DC, the power of Iron Maiden and the songs of Judas Priest; come on, what's not to like here? Check out the title track as this superbly delivered mini-epic totally sums up this exciting band."



Bullet, who hail from Växjö, were formed in 2001 by vocalist Hell Hofers and guitarist Hampus Klang. Party animals who love being on the road, Bullet have subsequentlty released five excellent studio albums, toured most European countries several times and performed at some of Europe's most prestigious festivals, including Rock Am Ring, Graspop, Sweden Rock, Rock Hard, Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Wacken (twice). 'Dust To Gold' will be available as a Digipak CD (+poster), double gatefold (with printed inner sleeves) 80 gram golden vinyl LP (+ CD in cardboard case), download and stream.

***SWEDISH METAL ACT'S ANTHEMNIC NEW STUDIO ALBUM 'DUST TO GOLD' UNLEASHED APRIL 20TH ON STEAMHAMMER /SPV***

Fired up Swedish heavy metal five-piece Bullet have inked a worldwide record deal with Steamhammer / SPV to release their stonking sixth studio album, 'Dust To Gold', on April 20th as a Digipak CD (+poster), double gatefold (with printed inner sleeves) 80 gram golden vinyl LP (+ CD in cardboard case), download and stream.

Bullet, who hail from Växjö, were formed in 2001 by vocalist Hell Hofers and guitarist Hampus Klang, who recalls that "The heroes of our teenage years were AC/DC, Judas Priest, Saxon, Accept, Rose Tattoo and Motörhead."



Party animals who love being on the road, Bullet have subsequentlty released five excellent studio albums, toured most European countries several times, opened for AC/DC in front of 55,000 people (in 2009) and performed at some of Europe's most prestigious festivals, including Rock Am Ring, Graspop, Sweden Rock, Rock Hard, Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Wacken (twice).

For many years the band have been conquering the world in their ancient tour bus, a black, white and red 1964 Volvo B63508, with its indestructible six-cylinder engine and countless miles under its frayed seats, lovingly referred to as the 'Bullet Bus'. "In the years that we've been travelling from show to show in our van and have visited countless festivals, our Bullet Bus has never let us down," notes Hampus, explaining why the vintage vehicle features on the cover of 'Dust To Gold'; "The Volvo has more than earned its place on the front cover, because in its own way it's just like we are: hard as nails, resilient and full of priceless memories."



"Our new songs are about life on the road, about freedom, adventure and the endless fun that passionate metal bands have," Klang explains. Their love of their lives as musicians oozes from every single note, be it the first single 'Ain't Enough', the fast-paced album opener 'Speed And Attack' (in classic NWOBHM style), the powerful singalong anthem 'Fuel The Fire' or the cool, grooving midtempo 'Wildfire'. Regarding the album's title track, Hampus states that "We've tried for a long time to make a song in a Heaven and Hell kind of vibe and this time we really made it. It's turned out to be a mighty and epic anthem."

'Dust To Gold' was produced and mixed from August to December 2017 at the Pama Studios in Torsås, Sweden, by Bullet and Mankan Sedenberg, who consciously used an analogue tape machine to give the recording a warm sound. Hampus is extremely happy with the result: "We spent much more time on the songwriting than we did with previous albums. The whole production took a bit longer this time, but we think it was worth it. We wanted an album where every song is a great one, totally without fillers. We also worked hard to make the sound as honest and authentic as possible and it sounds a lot more like we do live."
