about the band
Bulletboys are among the greatest of the hard rock/metal bands.
Formed in the late
1980's, Bulletboys debut self-titled release and follow-up entitled
received with an enthusiastic response by both critics and in hard
By 1993, the year of their third release - "ZA-ZA" (and last release
to date with the
original line-up) - the rock climate which had been thriving in
the late '80's had turned
in favor of the "grunge" sound.
The music scene of the 90's has been good and bad, but rock in
general has been stale.
There have been some shining moments, such as the release of the
album, a departure from their signature sound entitled, "Acid Monkey".
With only half
the original band in tact, they wrote this new album with a violent
and raw edge - sometimes
sounding as "punk" as it does "metal."
Bulletboys went their separate ways for awhile during the late
90's to work on other projects,
some of which I will mention more of as this website progresses.
However, the word is
out, the original band is back together for another studio album
(and perhaps a tour?).

Marq Torien - Vocals
