Some random group has released the debut record of Dutch Death Metal hopefuls Hail of Bullets, entitled ...Of Frost and War. The Band consists of members from several infamous Dutch Death Metal bands (like Pestilence, Asphyx, Thanatos or Gorefest). They´ve created a concept album about the "Operation Barbarossa", the offensive of Nazi Germany against Sowjet Russia in 1941 - 1945, and the struggle of the Russian army against the Nazi invaders (e.g. in the battle of Stalingrad).
Musicwise we get a mixture of swedish Death Metal Bands like Dismember and more doomy, mid-tempo, parts of Asphyx making ...Of Frost and War a very consistent and raw old school Death Metal record.

If you dig this sound and like historical concepts, as much as I do, you´ll have to get hands on this record.
