"At The Gates Of Hell" marks Bullet Ride's recording debut, yet never does it reveal any approximation or hesitation that is typical of his first steps. The musicians have been walking around the metal scene for a long time and the drummer Thibaut recorded two albums with Otargos. This solid experience leads them to this trial run, which we can guess has been long run through before landing on our turntables. Its mixing entrusted to Pierre-Emmanuel Pelisson (Molly Hatchett, Phil Campbell) assures him moreover a very professional sound.

When reading these few lines, a detail intrigues inevitably: the presence of a singer who arouses as much interest as curiosity. As much at ease in heavy register as in growls that Angela Gossow wouldn't deny ('Somewhere Else'), Manu establishes the band's music in the Thrash darkened with death metal while her very French way of screaming English lyrics, far from burdening the whole, finally confers an astonishing charm ('All At Sea').

The vocals, split between light and darkness, and the contribution of a drummer with an extreme pedigree are enough to indicate the content of this powerful "At The Gates Of Hell". Relentless rhythmic like a steamroller ('Dead And Back'), hostile guitars ('What Comes After'), worrying atmospheres ('Weather The Storm'), the whole perforated by the assaults of a singer who doesn't fear the abyss, this first album concretes a heavy thrash of a murderous efficiency.

The sense of the melody ('World On Fire') coupled with a sharp technique ('Naked Greed') add to the efficiency of formidable tracks promised to have a certain impact on stage where they will certainly break the brains of an audience that came to quench its thirst for a traditional and snarling metal that dark and threatening atmospheres nevertheless imprison in an apocalyptic modernity.

A small bomb of heavy thrash encrusted with death metal miasmas, "At The Gates Of Hell" shows with a bleeding skill the potential of a Bullet Ride which should not remain there!

OTHER REVIEWS
THE FAIM: Talk Talk (2022)
ALTERNATIVE ROCK - Second album of the Australians of The Faim, "Talk Talk" has a rather radiant pop-rock sound but lacks somewhat of originality.
BLOODHUNTER: Knowledge Was The Price (2022)
DEATH METAL - Bloodhunter shifts into high gear with "Knowledge Was The Price" which is transcendentally beautiful, melodic, punchy and very inspired.
