Bullet are known for their ability to deliver on stage and 'Live' is a direct reflection of that sentiment.

Spanning six studio albums, 'Live' is the first official concert recording in the band's discography and it's a welcome addition for any Bullet fan. While many live albums have been responsible for exposing otherwise struggling groups to massive audiences (KISS 'Alive!' anyone?), this also stands to be a great launch pad for the curious. Bullet have a lot of material to pull from, and they do so in the form of a massive eighteen song, two-CD set that encompasses their entire career.

Those familiar with this band already know that a ballad in any shape or form will not be found. Although the music (at times) can sound a bit repetitive, this release is a consistent onslaught of powerful, well-executed music in the NWOBHM style. The group are absolutely rock solid and their twin guitar attack is as good as any of the classic, two-guitar bands who went on to author the style.

From the opening track 'Uprising' to the closing (and aptly titled) number 'Bite The Bullet', 'Live' pulls no punches and is an overdue addition to their discography. The group prove that they can still deliver as well as they did on their first mini-album that was released back in 2003. Hell Hofer's vocals sound as strong as ever and they cut through with a slaughterhouse rawness, falling somewhere between Udo Dirkschneider (Accept, UDO) and Brian Johnson (AC/DC). Drummer Gustav Hjortsjo and bassist, Gustav Hector anchor a tight rhythm section which allows for Hampus Klang and Alexander Lyrbo to riff-away. The songs also feature copious amounts of twin guitar harmonies and plenty of solos.

Historically, Bullet are known for their ability to deliver on stage and 'Live' is a direct reflection of that sentiment. For a live recording, the sound of the album is rather excellent and it's a direct credit to their live technician, Dennis Ahman, and Arne Lakenmacher's knowledge of the band's performances. The tracks cascade from one to the next with little in the way of stopping or eating up time with unnecessary "call and response" antics with the crowd. My only disappointment is that no physical format is slated to include a bonus DVD containing live/backstage footage which chronicles the group's career.

Notwithstanding that minor detail, 'Live' is a solid release for all involved, from the band who recorded it all the way through to fans both new and old.
