“Bulletbelt create acidic and biting tunes that never go out of style; digging into what makes metal so intrinsically visceral to this day. The band is a reminder of the deep-rooted joy to be found in forthright and bloodthirsty underground metal that cuts straight to the heart.”
– Metal Bandcamp
“Bulletbelt make breakneck bitter tunes... think Norway’s Craft and Aura Noir at the tail-end of an evening’s drinking and knife fighting.”
Bulletbelt has been striking fear into New Zealand audiences since 2009. The Wellington-based band crafts tunes that draw from black metal’s vicious realms, with cutthroat and meteoric traditional metal, torrents of thrash, and biting second-wave punk all added in to sharpen the razor. Accordingly, fans of Bulletbelt range from patch-vested veterans to kvlt aficionados and gutter punks, and the reason the band holds that crossover crowd transfixed is simple: Bulletbelt adheres to metal’s fundamentals, and its unbridled enthusiasm for the genre’s essential aesthetic strengths is obvious.
