Dutch Death Metal Masters HAIL OF BULLETS have launched the first song of their upcoming new album ‘On Divine Winds’ exclusively on MySpace. Surf to the bands site http://www.myspace.com/hailoffuckenbullets to check out the album opener Operation Z!
Drummer Ed Warby comments on Operation Z: “On December 7th of 1941 Japan launched Operation Z, a bold surprise attack on the United States which came as such a shock that Roosevelt referred to it as “a date which will live in infamy”. It is no coincidence then that we chose to cover this event in the crushing opening track of our upcoming album “On Divine Winds”. Experience the carnage as hundreds of planes descend from the sky to bring death and destruction, and revel in the aural massacre we unleash upon your ears and necks! Banzai!”
Comments singer Martin van Drunen on the concept of ‘On Divine Winds’: “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.”
The album title ‘On Divine Winds’ refers to the translation for the Japanese word Kamikaze, as kami stands for “God” and kaze means “wind”.
