Bullet: Full Pull
Bullet Full Pull Review

Bullet: Full Pull

Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
3.0/5.0

Sweden's AC/DC clones, Bullet, are back with their fourth album, Full Pull. Despite the obvious imitation, the band must be doing something right as they're now signed to a major European label, Germany's Nuclear Blast Records.

Bullet: Sweden's AC/DC.

At the very least or the very best, depending on your perspective, and while they still ape that Australian band at every turn, Bullet sometimes shows improvement in songwriting. Notable is the novel addition of piano to the outro of Rolling Home. But that creativity pretty much ends there. For the pure AC/DC boogie hard rock, the title cut, High on the Hog, and All Fired Up are likely the closest imitators, with that last song the best one here.

Give kudos to the guitar work; it was much more interesting than I expected. I wish I could say the same for lead vocalist Hell Hofer; he's some were between nearly terrible, just listen to Midnight Oil, and genuinely monotonous.

If you're a collector of the latest music from the throng of AC/DC clones, Bullet's Full Pull will be perfect for you. Otherwise, I'm going to pull out my Highway to Hell or Back in Black albums to wash my ears out.

One thing you can count on with purveyors of "true" heavy metal, they love themes of sci-fi, fantasy, mythology, and sword and sorcery. England's Fury is one of those bands taking the same things to exponential levels on their second long player, Lost In Space ... [ Read More ]
