Bio

Acid blues and an unstoppable hard rock storm that brings memories of Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top and The Black Crowes… Grunge attacks at Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden’s best style…

Almost four years of concerts at different stages, bars and festivals have put together the perfect mixture of blues, rock and grunge that Bullet delivers on their first album, “Hunting Season”.

On its route through the local and national musical scene, Bullet has been recognized as a band of exceptional live performances, where the songs – their original compositions as well as classic rock versions – suddenly open in jam key to showcase the power and coordination of Néstor Dueñas-Torres (bass) and Julián Puentes (Drums); they both give a precise and effective support to Francisco Lozano’s killing guitar. The sonic background is completed by the singer Rodrigo Holguín, who easily goes from blues moans at John Lee Hooker’s best style to a forceful rock interpretation reminding the wails of Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) and Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave).

The force of the band on stage has been transmitted to their debut, “Hunting Season”. “Break You”, first song in the album and also first single, immediately shows the sonic power of Bullet and their grunge assets. That same ground is revisited in “Hunting Season”, the song that gives its title to the album, and “Days Running Out”, while the classic rock influence gets more clear in songs like “Hey Child” or “Potemkin”.

Faithful to its rock n’ roll roots, the band has chosen English as its “official” language. As Nestor Dueñas-Torres assured in an interview for Much Music’s “El Toque”: “We sing in English because we play rock, not ‘piedra’”. However, this particular position is what brings more attention to the song “1867”, inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s poem “The Vampire”, and written in Spanish as an attempt to explore other lyrical and musical possibilities in the band’s original compositions.

Although the band was founded in 2003, the release of their first album marks the beginning of a new cycle for Bullet. In “Hunting Season”, the band delivers twelve songs that not only show their musical influences but also new boundaries: “Hunting season” portraits traditional Colombian rhythms connected with rock (“The Game”), an acoustic song performed at Nick Cave and the Bad Seed’s style suddenly turns into a gospel tune (“We All Have Something), and the studio work recreates atmospheres that support the concept behind the songs (“Days Running out”).
With their debut album, Bullet has officially opened the Hunting Season.

Descargas de blues ácido y hard rock que traen a la memoria a Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top o The Black Crowes. Ataques grunge al mejor estilo de Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam y Soundgarden…

Casi cuatro años de presentaciones en distintos espacios, bares y festivales han cimentado esa mezcla exacta de blues, rock y grunge que propone Bullet en su debut discográfico, “Hunting season”.

En su recorrido por la escena musical local y por otras ciudades, Bullet ha sido reconocida como una banda de excepcional desempeño en el escenario, donde las canciones – ya sean originales o versiones de clásicos del rock - repentinamente se abren en clave de jam para exponer el poder y el acople instrumental de Néstor Dueñas-Torres (Bajo) y Julián Puentes (Batería), quienes le brindan un soporte exacto y muy eficaz al guitarrista Francisco Lozano. El telón sonoro que componen los tres músicos es complementado por Rodrigo Holguín en la voz, quien pasa con facilidad de los lamentos blues de un John Lee Hooker a una interpretación más contundente, que recuerda por momentos a Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) o a Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave).

Esa fuerza del grupo en escena es la que ha quedado plenamente plasmada en “Hunting Season”. “Break you”, corte que abre el disco y que ha sido escogido como primer sencillo, de inmediato da cuenta de la potencia del sonido de Bullet y de su afinidad por el grunge. De un estilo similar son “Hunting Season”, la canción que le da título al disco, y “Days running out”, mientras que los guiños de la banda hacia el rock de corte clásico son más evidentes en temas como “Hey Child” o “Potemkin”.

Fieles a sus raíces en el rock n’ roll, los integrantes del grupo han escogido el inglés como el idioma “oficial” de sus canciones. Como aseguró Néstor Dueñas-Torres en una entrevista para “El toque” de Mucha Música: “Cantamos en inglés porque tocamos rock, no piedra”. Por esta misma postura del grupo es que en “Hunting Season” llama la atención “1867”, inspirada en el poema “El vampiro”, de Charles Baudelaire, y escrita en español con la intención de explorar otras posibilidades líricas y sonoras en el material original del grupo.

Aunque la banda fue fundada en 2003, la publicación de su primer disco marca el inicio de un nuevo ciclo para Bullet. En “Hunting season” la banda entrega a los medios y a sus
