"On Divine Winds" was produced by Ed Warby and mixed once again by Dan Swanö.

Comments singer Martin van Drunen: "This time Hail of Bullets takes on the Pacific War. The expansion of the Empire of Japan throughout Asia, introducing a full scale war using all forces combined. The massive strike back of the Americans, whose marines bravely fought many tough and bloody battles on now forgotten insulate islands spread throughout the whole Pacific. This led to desperate Japanese defense tactics such as Kamikaze, human bullets and suicidal Banzai charges. Until finally, incendiary bombings brought the empire to its knees."

Comments drummer Ed Warby: "I don't think I've ever worked this hard on anything in my entire life, but it sure has paid off! Although …Of Frost And War is a tough act to follow, my ringing ears tell me we've succeeded in besting it on every level: songs, playing, production… at the moment Dan Swanö is putting the final touches on a mix that could squash a tank, and then it's off to the pressing plant! All the main ingredients of our blood 'n' guts style death metal have remained intact and I honestly can't imagine anyone that liked our previous work is going to be the least bit disappointed… on the contrary!"

Exactly - the singing definitely reminds me of Obituary at times. I really enjoy track 3, "The Mukden Incident," a lot.

Martin Van Drunens' vocals rule, and I can say the same for the music too.

So looking forward to owning the special edition with the extra track but until that arrives, this will do.

Thanks for posting.

Man Martin Van Drunen is instantly recognizable! My first thought was, damn is this Asphyx? I actually like this more than the latest Asphyx record though - awesome.
