about

From the trenches of the Cape Town metal scene, BULLETSCRIPT unleashed their debut release "Knotted" on 30 August 2014.

Band founder, guitarist and chief songwriter, Jacques Hugo, has gathered around him a group of hard working, and harder playing musicians in order to craft an EP that is as much a testament to creativity, as it is to tenacity. Matt Howard-Tripp’s impeccably phrased lead guitar adds twisted melodies and harmonic complexity to Hugo’s furious riffing. On the drums, Kyle Curran pounds away at the kit like a man possessed, at times laying down a thick groove and a flurry of syncopated rhythms. Jacques Du Toit’s bass, who’s aggressive tone runs the risk of climbing out of the speakers and beating you into submission completes the engine of the band admirably. Ian Watson tops it off with a hardcore influenced approach to his vocals, intent on getting the band’s message through in no uncertain terms.

Combining the raw groove ethic of groups like Entombed, Sepultura and Pantera, with a more polished edge of modern outfi ts like The Haunted and Machine Head, BULLETSCRIPT pushes the envelope with an emphasis on solid song writing, and intense delivery. Featuring 5 power tracks that hold nothing back, this EP showcases a band committed to playing metal beyond trends, and with the necessary societal menace, that makes metal the music of choice for so many, in today’s interesting times.

BULLETSCRIPT is a band with a clear message. Open your eyes to the world around you, and question everything, taking nothing, and nobody, for granted. And play some metal while doing it!

Track Name: Enough
YOU’RE THE LIAR!

When will enough be enough?
Imaginary needs, that can never be satiated.

What’s the point of the game?
You can take it with you?
Result of this game
And it’s just another game
More rubbish swirling around the ocean.

When will enough be enough?
Imaginary needs, that can never be satiated.

Like it doesn’t mean a thing.
Another broken back or wing.
Doesn’t mean a thing.
Buy, that prize.
Buy, we buy, our bloody prize!

Can your values, be bought and sold?
Can your mind, change in a moment?
Change in a moment!
We’ ve seen our values, bought and sold.
We’ ve seen our minds, change in a moment.

Please don’t turn off the lie...You’ve turned off the light!
Turn off the lie!
Please don’t turn off the lie.
Turn off the lie!

This is purposeless, running around, in circles.
This is purposeless, running around.

YOU’RE THE LIAR. LIAR!
Track Name: Left for Dead
What’s the name of the game, is something suffering?
When will we realise, we’re just a lot of eyes?
Staring out into the nothing, filled with something.
We place value judgments on hold,
For a comfortable feeling.

Where we say what’s right!
Where we say what’s allowed!
Cos we say it’s right!
Yeah you don’t say?!

We’ll be left for dead.
We will be left for dead.
We will..

We’ll be left for dead, forgotten eventually.
No matter how high we build, or try to hold back the sea.
No matter how hard we press, the ink on the page will fade.
No matter how hard we try.
The elaborate lie.

Where we say what’s right!
Where we say what’s allowed!
Cos we say it’s right!
Yeah you don’t say!

We’ll be left for dead.
We will be left for dead.
We are...left for dead!

Absolute, total, desolate, annihilation.

We’ll be left for dead.
We will be left for dead.
Left for dead
Track Name: We Owe You
(We’ve all lain awake, at night, wondering...)

WHY?

Holy walk. Holy talk.
Holy books. Holy what!
You’ve just been wholly fucked!

You claim to walk the line.
The line which you have drawn.
But I just see a lie.
A lie which you have borne.

WE OWE YOU!
WE OWE YOU NOTHING!
WE OWE YOU? YOU OWE US!

No shame just break the line.
The line it is now torn.
You free you from the lie.
A new you now reborn.

WE OWE YOU!
WE OWE YOU NOTHING!
YOU OWE YOU? NOTHING AT ALL!
NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL!

Blind obedience to hating any difference.
Life of service to mindless existence.
Death to anyone standing on the outside
‘Cause you worship, something in your own mind.
Your true colours, your true colours

NOTHING AT ALL! AT ALL!
WE’RE NOT YOUR GOD’S DAMN THINGS!
Track Name: Politics
LIARS

Men must be led. So we are told
Animals fight yeah to claim that right
By tooth, claw, beak, bone and ...jaw
We succeed by politics, we succeed by illiterate vote
Boy do we suc(k).....ceed

Men must be men. So we are told.
Then why do the weak seem to run this show?
Cos money’s not muscle, money’s not...guile.
Money’s a cagey scrawny device

Politics in just a word - Politics is ....

SUBJUGATION. DOMINATION.
SUBJUGATE - DOMINATE

Bunch of wankers wasting millions.
Bunch of useless corporate puppets.
As we all stand so afraid. oh so very afraid.

Politics in just a word, politics is....

SUBJUGATION DOMINATION
SUBJUGATE - DOMINATE

LIARS!
YOU BUNCH OF FUCKEN LIARS

Politics in just a word, politics is trickery.
One big wilful complication.
Domination, subjugation.
One big wilful complication.
To Dominate, yeah to subjugate.
Track Name: Back to Hell
FIRE...BURN...

Tortured souls, driving us all.
Tortured souls, find your way home.

From a fire, we were born.
From destruction, all of this has become.
Sunlight that burns, yet gives us life.
Earth’s molten core, sustains us all.

Tortured souls, driving us all.
Tortured souls, find your way home.

Light in the sky, burns and yet gives us life.
Deep underground, furnace begins to rise.

Furnace begins to rise!

FIRE...BURN...INFERNAL...RETURN

Light in the sky, burns and yet gives us life.
Deep underground, furnace begins to rise.

Tortured souls, driving us all.
Tortured souls, find your way home.

BACK TO HELL!

Total compression, end of it all.
Middle finger, from the nothing.
To the something.
