III The Rommel Chronicles began to take shape in the second half of 2012 when Hail Of Bullets started writing songs for this third album, which sees the band approaching things a bit differently lyric wise. Instead of describing a certain campaign or theatre of war, this album focuses on the military life, rise and fall of German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite fighting on the wrong side, Rommel was undeniably a great strategist who was both feared and admired by his enemies. Musically, III The Rommel Chronicles recalls a bit of their debut album. The songs are faster, more raw, more aggressive and direct than on On Divine Winds which had a more epic, heroic feel. Once again, production duties were handled by Ed Warby and the album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. A new lyrical approach also necessitated a different style of artwork, which was provided by Dutch artist Erik Wijnands.
Death Metal guru Dan Swanö about the new HOB album: "Hail Of Bullets return for their third album, armed to the teeth with a thunderous death metal onslaught that combines the raw ferocity of the first album with the more expanded arrangements of the second. A death metal masterpiece!"
