||Swedish metalheads Bullet will release their new album Storm Of Blades on the 5th of September and also hit the road again in Europe. This will be their fifth longplayer and the first featuring the band's new guitar player Alexander Lyrbo, who replaced Erik Almström in 2012.
The band comments: "This is a fast and heavy back to the roots album. Now with the young blood Alex on the guitar, always thirsty for metal, the songs ended up just like that: Heavier, faster and more raw than on previous albums. We can now at last truthfully say; this is our best album this far and most likely the rawest since the Heavy Metal Highway recording in 2002."
The album title Storm Of Blades came up during a soundcheck before a show last year. "We wanted to make the toughest Bullet song ever and this riff popped up. The first impression was the image of knifes falling from the sky and the title Storm Of Blades was born. To make this song the title track of our new album became a must as it is a tale about destruction, apocalypse and horror!"
Storm Of Blades was recorded during December/January and April/May 2014 at the Pama Studio in Torsås, Sweden. Produced by Bullet and Magnus "Mankan" Sedenberg.
Bullet will be on the road again, along with two support bands: Striker and Stallion.
