Hail of Bullets Call it Quits


Dutch death metallers Hail of Bullets are throwing in the towel. Why? Don’t ask, ’cause they ain’t telling:


“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…”

The group parted ways with their most well-known member, Martin Van Drunen (Asphyx), in 2015. We can assume that this is “the disease” the band thought they had “cut out” a few years ago. Bolt Thrower’s Dave Ingram was subsequently announced as Van Drunen’s replacement, but clearly that didn’t work out — Ingram never even recorded with the band.

Honestly, I was never that into HoB, but I know plenty of respectable people who were. So I mourn for your mourning. Group hug in the comments section.
