"…Of Frost And War", the debut album from HAIL OF BULLETS, was released in Europe on May 19 (except in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, where it arrived three days earlier, and Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg, where it will be released on March 13) via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded in February/March of 2008 at Excess Studios in Rotterdam, Holland and was mixed and mastered in Sweden by Dan Swanö of EDGE OF SANITY fame.

HAIL OF BULLETS was formed in late 2006 through a mutual love for old-school death metal bands like AUTOPSY, BOLT THROWER, MASSACRE, CELTIC FROST and DEATH. In the summer of 2007, the band entered a Rotterdam studio to record a four-song promotional CD, which was mixed by the infamous death metal guru Dan Swanö in Sweden.
