It's no secret that Martin Van Drunen is a legendary death metal vocalist. Also, most people that would approach this release are doing so due to the fact of his inclusion in the band's lineup. If I do say so myself; his strangled, sick, sick, sick voice is in its most harmonious (only figuratively, mind you) home with Hail Of Bullets. It just so happens to be a perfect fit with the compositions of these Bolt Thrower-meets-Dismember-esque instant classics. So, those yearning for an actual studio recording of Van Drunen's brief stint in Bolt Thrower need fret no longer. This is better than that would have been. Take my word for it.

This is what I'd be listenining to in a fox hole while mowing down the enemy with a browning .50 caliber machine gun.

Great Death Metal, with some great lyrics, which approach the world war 2 scenario on a brutal but critical level. I really like it.

nothing overlooked about this album. It got loads of attention. Not surprising considering the members involved.

I was just about to say the exact same thing
Even when they're not playing live I cannot seem to avoid the band.
Yesterday at the Dead Congregation, Soulburn, ZOM, Impalement gig in Rotterdam almost all of the band members were present.

I guess we couldn't expect God Buster to know this though. After all, making stuff up and random guesses is his forte.
