BULLET The Entrance
To Hell (SJPCD281)
the opening of the door to its closure Bullet made a competent, varied,
psychedelic, vaguely doomy child in time of an album
...Bullet's style was more one of funk rock blended with the sound of
traditional blues rock power trio...Entrance To Hell is a very satisfying
released for the first time the original Bullet tracks from 1970/71 masters held
in storage over the past 40 years...
Air continue to come up with the goods in unleashing rare and obscure recordings
with this release by the short lived Bullet, a band formed by the ex Atomic
Rooster pairing of John Du Cann (guitar, vocals) and Paul Hammond (drums) ...
Bullet's style was more one of funk rock blended with the sound of a traditional
blues rock power trio ... Another worthwhile release from a band that never made
it, Entrance To Hell is a very satisfying listen.
...those tapes don't have the streamlined impact of 'Bulletproof', yet sound
somehow fresher in their rawness...
17 songs...are significantly heavier than the Rooster connection probably
excellent snapshot of what still makes 70s rock as captivating now as it was
back then, combining a more guitar based mixture of Uriah Heep, Captain Beyond
and, surprisingly, Atomic Rooster.
there are some very good tracks here. 'Taken Alive', 'Fortunes Told', 'Time
Gambler', 'The Orchestrator' and the albumís instrumental title track are all
worth a listen. Then you get tracks that are very much jam session like, for
example 'Hell, Demonic Possession'...
