Hail Of Bullets have announced On Divine Winds as the title of their upcoming new album to be released October, 8/11 via Metal Blade Records in Europe and on October, 12 in North America.

Hail Of Bullets' debut album ...Of Frost And War was a concept album about the Eastern front war of Germany. On Divine Winds is another concept album, this time covering the Pacific battles between Japan and the USA.

Comments singer Martin van Drunen: "This time Hail of Bullets takes on the Pacific War. The expansion of the Empire of Japan throughout Asia, introducing a full scale war using all forces combined. The massive strike back of the Americans, whose marines bravely fought many tough and bloody battles on now forgotten insulate islands spread throughout the whole Pacific. This led to desperate Japanese defense tactics such as Kamikaze, human bullets and suicidal Banzai charges. Until finally, incendiary bombings brought the empire to its knees."

The album title On Divine Winds refers to the translation for the Japanese word Kamikaze, as kami stands for "God" and kaze means "wind". The album features 12 tracks on the limited first Digibook edtion and 11 tracks on the regular jewelcase version. On Divine Winds was produced by Ed Warby and like before the monstrous mix was in the capable hands of Mr Dan Swanö.

Now this is an album I'm looking forward to. If it's even half as good as ...of Frost and War it will be a contender for the best death metal album of the year. Interesting that they're continuing with the WWII theme from a different perspective.

I read an interview with Ed Warby where he stated that they would focuse on the Pacific battles because that war is almost unknown here in Europe.
