Bulletbelt - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission 029: Bulletbelt

08 Nov 2021 // An interview by Will Stairmand




Steve Francis stops by to talk about the band and music in general, upcoming albums, tours, and higher goals of the band.



 

About Bulletbelt

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 Impiety (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.

MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission S04 / E19 - Rendered Helpless
23 May 2024 // by Will Stairmand
Alex, mostly known as vocalist from Christchurch's world renowned and respected Organectomy, also has a long standing solo project that has grown from strength to strength with each release. His 4th offering From Nothing Comes All brings with it what I would consider an evolution of sound and a unique addition to what once might have been considered a straightforward slam home project.
