Hail of Bullets Breaks Up

Funderground party death ‘n’ roll and deathcore band Hail of Bullets has broken up according to a post on their Funbook page. Hail of Bullets’ illness was no reason to exist as a musical entity beyond lining the pockets and fattening the livers of Dutch death metal scene veterans through CD releases and festival gigs. Martin van Drunen quit the train wreck a while ago probably as death metal fans grew sick of the band’s constant stream of lame releases. The war is over Hail of Bullets. You lost and were executed for your crimes against metal music such as III: The Rommel Chronicles.


With sadness in our hearts, we hereby inform you that we have decided to pull the plug on Hail of Bullets. The patient had been suffering from illness for a few years already. We thought we had cut out the disease a few years ago, but apparently the tumor was more widespread than we had expected.
There are no immediate plans to resurrect the corpse…

PS: personal messages/questions about this situation will not be answered. This is it, and both you and us will have to deal with that…

        1. My name is Ogami Itto. Evil lords sent their ninjas to murder my family and stain my honor so I wander the earth as a demon until vengeance is mine.

    I did not like this band at all, and the other Asphyx-lite project Grand Supreme Blood Court was also pointless, much like the last three Asphyx albums.

    I recently started listening to Vader after years of ignoring them due to the name, pretty sick. I deicided that instead of constantly being disappointed by new bands I’ll give the ones I passed up in prior years a second chance & see where it goes. Hallows eve isn’t too bad but it feels like second rate Slayer at times.

    1. No one liked the name, but the hilarious inversion was that Star Wars borrowed an old word to mung up “Dark Father” and hint at the last non-idiotic part of the world created by its writers. Then Vader used the same word, perhaps unrelated to the movie, and people shied away because to be into Star Wars in the 90s was as immunodepressant as to even consider going to one of those plastic Happy Meal movies now.

      If intellectual property law did not have its head up its ass, it would allow for the preservation of memory at the appropriate level by having frozen any further Star Wars movies in 1978. Instead, we now suffer through millennials indulging in false nostalgia and watching the new movies, all of which are either honestly retarded (the Lucas versions) or simply callow cash-ins (the new hip versions).

      In the meantime, films like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice slide under the radar while the sheep stampede thunders off to the next distraction from the existential abyss of living in a materialistic age and its own vapidity.

        “1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice”

        Not a film.

          1. /\/\/ says:

            Yeah, it’s a tv series. Still not a film.

            1. Baaaarp says:

              So what? Take it as a large movie. Best fantasy ever!

      2. OliveFox says:

        BBC also did Tinker, Tailor…as a mini-series in the 80s, if I am not mistaken. I need to re-watch it to see if it holds up, but fuck, it had Alec Guinness in it, how bad could it be?

      3. OliveFox says:

        And as far as spy thrillers go…I find Ambler’s A Coffin for Dimitrios far superior to much of La Carre, outside of his 2 best, yet Ambler is barely a footnote anymore.

      4. S.C. says:

        Better to not watch any film or television… unless it illicits night terrors, or can somehow depict the alchemical process.

        1. Abominable Goatpenis says:

          Old sitcoms count, right?

    lol @ their badly thought out medical metaphor.
