At the end of 2006 former PESTILENCE/ASPHYX-singer Martin van Drunen, ex-HOUWITSER bass player Theo van Eekelen, GOREFEST-drummer Ed Warby and both THANATOS-guitarists Paul Baayens (also in ASPHYX) and Stephan Gebédi hooked up for a serious drinking session in the city of Amersfoort, Holland. A mutual love for old school death metal bands like AUTOPSY, BOLT THROWER, CELTIC FROST and DEATH resulted in the idea to form a band together.
HAIL OF BULLETS recorded their debut album “…Of Frost and War” in February/March 2008.
“When you think there’s no hope left for brutal music, where every band sounds the same, HAIL OF BULLETS comes along and just level everything with the ground. Pretenders – move over!” – Silenoz / DIMMU BORGIR
