Cape Town, South Africa: the Metal groove-masters at Bulletscript are unveiling the first single from Enemy today; an upcoming EP from the band for sometime later in 2019. The new work is the first featuring Brett Bruton (formerly from All Guns Full Ammo) since taking over on vocals from Ian Watson. The song releasing today is the title track for Enemy, and premiers with a live interview on The Rock Arena presented by Tallon Williams at One FM 94.0 tonight shortly after 22h00.
At its heart, ‘Enemy’ is a return to Bulletscript’s groove metal roots, but what it represents is so much more. Driven by catchy riffs, energetic solos and driving vocals, the EP is the first, audacious step towards a new era of composition for the band; drawing on a wealth of new learning and a rekindled enthusiasm for kick-ass metal. Stepping up from the introspection of 2016’s Primordial, Enemy is an explosion of energy, geared to entertain and energize the fans, at home and in the pit.
“Conceptually, the lyrical content of ‘Enemy’ swings from a critique of the cult of celebrity through to the technological singularity, with some societal dread sewn in between. The original cover artwork by local designer Dave Jackson brings some of these ideas to life in a scene that oozes foreboding, an ominous encounter with a looming entity in the center of a post-apocalyptic wasteland.” ~ Brett Bruton (vocals, Bulletscript)
