HAIL OF BULLETS will enter Excess studios in Rotterdam, Holland in February 2008 to begin recording its debut album for a May release via Metal Blade Records.
HAIL OF BULLETS was formed in late 2006 through a mutual love for old-school death metal bands like AUTOPSY, BOLT THROWER, MASSACRE, CELTIC FROST and DEATH. In the summer of 2007, the band entered a Rotterdam studio to record a four-song promotional CD, which was mixed by the infamous death metal guru Dan Swanö in Sweden. Swanö stated upon the CD's completion: "If this promo doesn't get you guys a good record deal, I will eat my laptop!"
HAIL OF BULLETS' entire four-song promotional CD is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
