about

Bulletbelt have been striking fear into New Zealand audiences since 2009. The Wellington based band craft tunes that draw from black metal’s vicious realms, with traditional metal, torrents of thrash, and biting secondwave punk all added in, to sharpen the razor.

1 October 2014 sees them unleash Rise Of The Banshee, their second full length album, with new vocalist Jolene Tempest. Recorded in Wellington at STL Audio on their vintage SSL 4000G console, and featuring the artwork of Scarecrowoven.

On the debut track from Rise Of The Banshee, 'Murderer's Collar', website No Clean Singing stated "Punk stomp and black metal acid and heavy metal swagger, gun-shot drumming and gut-shot riffing, risk of serious neck strain, catchy as chlamydia."

Tim Mekalick – bass
Jolene Tempest - vocals

Track Name: Death Tinted Red
Taken from rolling pastures, to a foreign land
Journey by sea, some of us did not survive
Traumatic transportation, disembarked at destination
Fighters filled with vehemence
No respect no honour
Unsung victories, heroes fallen
I am a creature of, nobility…

Distance and demand
Abnormality and stress

Starvation exhaustion
Succumb to disease and death

Their bones under my hooves
Mist of blood sprays onto my face

Through my stinging black eyes
All I see Death Tinted Red

Taken from rolling pastures, to a foreign land
Journey by sea, some of us did not survive
Traumatic transportation, disembarked at destination
Fighters filled with vehemence
No respect no honour
Unsung victories, heroes fallen
I am a creature of, nobility…

Distance and demand
Abnormality and stress

Starvation exhaustion
Succumb to disease and death

Their bones under my hooves
Mist of blood sprays onto my face
Through my stinging black eyes
All I see Death Tinted Red

Distance and demand
Abnormality and stress

I cannot understand this war I did not start
Primitive way of resolution, none of this makes sense to me.
To Me!

Carnage! Onslaught!
Conflict! Malevolence!

Pointless, bloodshed...
Heartless, destruction...
Track Name: Murderer's Collar
This was not the centre stage
I asked for
Through the crowd I feel their hate
They tell the tale of my reign
This city, how I was insane

Can not pray with poisoned tongue, or kneel on broken bones
Can not sing with punctured lung, nor see with eyes of stones
How can god hear your cries, you've rolled snake eyes
Pray the snap is swift and fast, silence deep deaths aghast

[repeat verse]

Killer, hang em, butcher, they shout
Murder, hang em, destroy, they shout

This was not the centre stage
I asked for
Through the crowd I feel their hate
They tell the tale of my reign
This city, how I was insane

Killer, hang em, butcher, they shout
Murder, hang em, destroy, they shout

You can not pray with poisoned tongue!
Track Name: Sniper
Got another victim in your sights
Target of the human kind gonna die tonight
Shoot to kill don't hesitate take all
Trigger finger set to pull the hammer now to fall


Never escape from the reaper
It hits like a bolt from the blue
Never be safe in the world we live with
A sniper comin' after you


For a price he'll blow his man away
Terminate by detonation dynamites ok
Murder eye's imobilise in pain
Stalk you either night or day and dig your early grave


Never escape from the reaper it hits like a bolt from the blue
Never be safe in the world we live with
A sniper comin' after you
A sniper comin' after you
A snipers gunning after you
A sniper comin' after you
That snipers gonna get ya


A sign of the times war games at play
The criminal mind set to eradicate
And watch out for the badge man

Military tactics in control
Sophisticated weaponry operating unexposed
Slaughtering artillery takes fire
Down the barrel of the gun
Instantly your life expire's

Never escape from the reaper
Hits like a bolt from the blue
Never be safe in the world we live with
A sniper comin after you
A sniper comin' after you
A snipers gunning after you
A sniper coming after you
That snipers gonna get you
Track Name: Minnie Dean
In an era of discretion
Children taken, without question
Paper trail, no background checks
For the victim's, suspects

Minnie Dean
Malicious fiend
Minnie Dean
Is your conscience clean

Hiding bodies, in the garden
Where she was, waved a pardon
Argued deaths, accidental
Swinging moods, are temperamental

Minnie Dean
Morbid queen
Minnie Dean
Where are the 14?

Angelic child disregarded
Seen by all as train departed
Hatbox and baby became as one
Lost in abyss, motherless son

Minnie Dean
Malicious fiend
Minnie Dean
Is your conscience clean
Minnie Dean
Morbid queen
Minnie Dean
Where are the 14?
Track Name: Deathgasm
Torment, the hate you always feel
Summon him to bring hell and pain
Suffer, to gouge out your eyes
And die before the eternal flame

Screaming at the evil, black magic Demonoid
Haxon sword, unleash hell today
Demons, Set free upon this world
Fighting in the fields of decay (so now we)

Stand on the World, Unleash the beast inside
Stand on the World, One final scream.......
DEATHGASM!

Accursed, recite the ancient Hymn
Scarlett tide wants the key to death
Driven, Blood gushing from their eyes
Hell and pain awaits all the rest

Summoning the King, evil hell spawn beast
Haxon sword, Apocolytic raids
Destroy, The Brotherhood of steel
Souls will merge, gasping last breath,
(so now we)

Stand on the World, Unleash the beast inside
Stand on the World, One final scream.......
DEATHGASM!

Screaming and writhing the caverns of your soul
Blinded and forced into the light
Searching and feeling insanity will fall
Once more the darkness deep inside (x 2, second time higher)

Torment, the hate you always feel
Summon him to bring hell and pain
Suffer, to gouge out your eyes
And die before the eternal flame

Screaming at the evil, black magic Demonoid
Haxon sword, unleash hell today
Demons, Set free upon this world
Fighting in the fields of decay (so now we)

Stand on the World, Unleash the beast inside
Stand on the World, One final scream.......DEATHGASM!
Track Name: Tarawera (Burnt Spear)
Witness the floating, omen of doom
Punished for all they, did consume
Awoken by tremors, molten rock
Sight to behold, frozen with shock

Column of smoke, 10k high
Dawn was thick, blackened sky
Trapped burnt in their homes
Destroyed beyond their control

Mother nature has overthrown
Once families, now turned to stone
Hell spews forth from silent beast
Sanctuary wont come from prayer or priest

Column of smoke, 10k high
Dawn was thick, blackened sky
Trapped burnt in their homes
Destroyed beyond their control

Sky lit up, great flashes of flame
The omen, the curse, the shame

Witness the floating, omen of doom
Punished for all they, did consume

Column of smoke, 10k high
Dawn was thick, blackened sky
Trapped burnt in their homes
Destroyed beyond their control

The mass destruction
Lasted six hours
The mouth of magma
Spills and devours
Track Name: Black Banshee
Skin and flesh to die
Black and bone dry
Gangrene fingers
A stench that lingers
Two to seven days
Look upon death's gaze
Your bodies, set ablaze
Contamination you cannot escape
Taking form a disfigured shape

Filth littered the streets
Forth the rodent fleet

Out of the east it swept
Attacking where we slept
Docked on Sicilian port
Behold destroyer escort
Journey through black sea
Caught the black banshee
Oh forgive oh lord
Taking down whole village horde

Onslaught, reigned on
Death still, feeds upon
[repeat]

Carry the flower to comfort the brain

Ruthless gods wrath
Wicked crooked path
Delusion and death
Nothing to suppress
It finds another host
The reapers next ghost
No knowledge to attain
We all have the mark of Cain

Filth littered the streets
Forth the rodent fleet

Onslaught, reigned on
death still, feeds upon
[repeat]

Carry the flower to comfort the brain

We all have the mark... the mark of Cain
