The Bulletmonks - Weapons Of Mass Destruction
When two brothers of Melbourne descent, G.I son Spreace Jackson and a half French drummer get together in a former pickle factory in Nuremburg to conquer the world of Rock n Roll, the Bulletmonks is what you get. Indeed pretty obvious if you’d ask me. But when reading along in their bio I also noticed that Metal Hammer did reward the band with the Full Throttle award. To be honest that did raise my expectations a little bit.
 
With the pedal to the metal start of ‘No Gain Just Pain’ I instantly rose my eyebrow a little more. This could turn out pretty okay. It reminds me a bit of Gluecifer or Motörhead with a great groove. The following songs are a bit more down tempo but still got a great groove. Not only are the names mentioned above probably one of the influences of Bulletmonks. Also Led Zeppelin and maybe even a bit of Volbeat are present within their music.
 
One of the first things that I noticed about the sound of Bulletmonks is the melodic guitar parts that have a great greasy production and overpower the music a bit. This gives just a bit more power and groove within the sound. Next to this I also noticed the crystal clear production of the album. Where a lot of bands would choose for a dirty sound, Bulletmonks did the right thing to crank up the guitar parts.
 
To be honest this album is quite a revelation for me. Especially since these guys met each other in a former pickle factory, I didn’t think anything good would come from this. Damn I probably just sounded like one of the mothers of the bandmembers. Well what the hell, I’m going to pull out my motorcycle for a ride once more with this album in my player.
