HAIL OF BULLETS: 'Operation Z' Video Released

"Operation Z", the new video from HAIL OF BULLETS — the Dutch death metal band featuring GOREFEST drummer Ed Warby, THANATOS guitarists Stephan Gebédi and Paul Baayens, former PESTILENCE/ASPHYX singer Martin Van Drunen and former HOUWITSER bass player Theo van Eekelen — can be viewed below.

Comments the group: "December 7, 1941 and October 18, 2010 — two dates that will live in infamy: on the first Japan attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, on the second HAIL OF BULLETS launch their new video for 'Operation Z', a song about this very attack from their crushing new album, 'On Divine Winds'! Combining explosive live footage from the BULLETS' appearance at this year's Summer Breeze festival with authentic WWII footage, the video shows the band captured in full scale war mode by a fearless camera crew. Banzai!"

A track-by-track breakdown of "On Divine Winds", the second full-length album from HAIL OF BULLETS, can be found on the Metal-Hammer.de web site.

"On Divine Winds" was released in North America on October 12 via Metal Blade Records (one day earlier internationally). The group recorded 11 songs plus an intro for the CD, which, like its predecessor, was produced by Ed Warby was mixed by Swedish producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, NIGHTINGALE).
