- 13/11/13 –
Death Metal as a genre is doing great as long as Holland’s premier extreme metal outfit HAIL OF BULLETS release albums like III The Rommel Chronicles! The record is hitting this week’s official German album charts like a ton of bricks at an incredible 47th position! This marks the highest ever chart entry for HAIL OF BULLETS, their last album On Divine Winds entered the German album charts in 2010 at #75.
HAIL OF BULLETS comments: “We’re extremely proud and happy to see our new album storming the charts! Thanks to our loyal fans for getting us there, you rule!”

III The Rommel Chronicles began to take shape in the second half of 2012 when HAIL OF BULLETS started writing songs for this third album which sees the band approaching things a bit differently lyric wise. Instead of describing a certain campaign or theatre of war, this album focuses on the military life, rise and fall of German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite fighting on the wrong side, Rommel was undeniably a great strategist who was both feared and admired by his enemies. Music wise III The Rommel Chronicles slightly harks back to the debut album. The songs are faster, rawer, more aggressive and direct than on On Divine Winds which had a more epic, heroic feel. Once again production duties were handled by Ed Warby and the album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. A new lyrical approach also asked for a different type of artwork, which was provided by Dutch artist Erik Wijnands.
Death Metal guru Dan Swanö about the new HOB longplayer: “Hail of Bullets return for their 3rd album, armed to the teeth with a thunderous Death Metal onslaught that combines the raw ferocity of the 1st album with the more expanded arrangements of the 2nd. A Death Metal masterpiece!”
