Dutch death metal giants Hail of Bullets have launched the landing page for their new album "III The Rommel Chronicles."

Pre-orders are available here, and you can check out the first single "Pour Le Mérite" in the player below.

"III The Rommel Chronicles" began to take shape in the second half of 2012 when Hail of Bullets started writing songs for this third album, which sees the band approaching things a bit differently lyric wise. Metal Blade Records comments:

"Instead of describing a certain campaign or theatre of war, this album focuses on the military life and rise and fall of German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite fighting on the wrong side, Rommel was undeniably a great strategist who was both feared and admired by his enemies. Musically, 'III The Rommel Chronicles' recalls a bit of their debut album. The songs are faster, more raw, more aggressive and direct than on 'On Divine Winds' which had a more epic, heroic feel. Once again, production duties were handled by Ed Warby and the album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. A new lyrical approach also necessitated a different style of artwork, which was provided by Dutch artist Erik Wijnands."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Swoop Of The Falcon
2. Pour Le Mérite
3. DG-7
4. To The Last Breath Of Man And Beast
5. DAK
6. The Desert Fox
7. Tobruk
8. Farewell To Africa
9. The Final Front
10. Death Of A Field Marshal
