00:51 - Erik M. How am I confusing average with generic? Karlabos used the word "average", so I replied to that. Also, Raxa is folky as hell. What does it matter if the themes are about Central America?
00:46 - Erik M. Fair enough. I have the opposite since this sort of folk doom metal really clicks with me, as it's highly atmospheric/ambient. Its themes are also somehow appealing and refreshing. I like pretty much everything, really.
00:44 - Fearmeister Also, I think Erik is confusing 'average' with 'generic' :P
00:44 - Karlabos Yeah, the hispano folk elements were what I was looking for when I discovered it, but somehow didn't like it very much. I did like another band (russian btw) named Tenochtitlan thought... But you probably already know it
00:43 - Fearmeister I wouldn't call Raxa Russian folk since the subject matter is Central America :P
00:42 - Karlabos Well, original it surely is. By rating average I just mean that it clicked on me on the same level an average metal album would, or something like that.
00:40 - Erik M. Raxa reminds me of Kauan at times. Both are Russian. Hmmm, have to check out more Russian folk doom bands I guess, haha. Seriously, give Raxa a 2nd chance. I love that sound. The folk elements especially.
Finally, the day I know you (and we) have all been waiting for: Mr. van Drunen added his sick vocals to the 4 tracks which will soon be known as the first official Hail Of Bullets promo! He came in, had a few beers, killed a few microphones, had a few more beers, and so it was done.
We put up one song for your enjoyment, but be sure to check back regularly, we may upload another one. Note: this is still unmixed, hopefully by the end of august we'll be able to put up the real thing (i.e. mixed by the master of heaviness, Dan Swanö).
For now let this rough slice of brutality satisfy your cravings for all things death and metal!
