"...brutal, harsh black metal with a punk twist." muzic.net.nz
There are two types of metal bands in the world today: those who innovate and those who are content to merely imitate. Bulletbelt have risen above the hordes of imitators to firmly establish themselves as innovators, successfully straddling the divide between thrash and black metal.
This five-piece from Wellington, New Zealand, have proven themselves time and again amongst their peers. Since forming in 2009, nationwide tours, including alongside Goatwhore (US) and Impeity (Singapore) on the Underground Legions tour of New Zealand, and supporting The Black Dahlia Murder (US) and Bolzer (Switzerland), have shown that they can rival any international metal band with their intense and energetic live performances.
Their 2010 EP ‘The Black Army Stands’ smashed expectations and showcased the band to an unsuspecting world, while 2011’s ‘Writhe and Ascend’ cemented their reputation for unforgiving, primal metal. The forthcoming album, 2012’s ‘Down In The Cold Of The Grave’, described by the band as their proudest moment, will see the band continue to hone their craft and challenge their collective musical boundaries.
It is that commitment they bring to every aspect of their music, live or recorded, that has spurred their rise and seen them decimating crowds around the country, including at the annual Capital Punishment and Beyond the Black festivals in Wellington.
With their dedication to metal driving them ever onwards Bulletbelt are set to conquer the metal realms, leaving you with two choices: succumb to their sound or be destroyed by it.
