“Pour Le Merité”: Hail of Bullets Win the Award for Best Elephants Marching Riff of Tuesday Morning

Hail of Bullets - III The Rommel Chronicles

Dutch death metal supergroup Hail of Bullets have released “Pour Le Merité” (“The Award For”), the first single from their new album, III: The Rommel Chronicles. And while my feelings about HoB in the past is that they’re one of the lesser-Martin Van Drunen projects, and for the most part, this song doesn’t do anything to change those feelings… except for the elephants marching riff which kicks in at the 1:35 mark. Granted, I am a total sucker for elephants marching riffs, as longtime readers are no doubt aware. But some things are terrific even when they’re kind of generic, like waffles and blowjobs.

III: The Rommel Chronicles comes out October 29 on Metal Blade, and can be pre-ordered here.
