Bulletbelt are not just a band - they are a force of nature. Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, they burst onto the scene in 2009 with a bang. Their 2012 debut album, Down in the Cold of the Grave, was a grim, ferocious start to their career.

In 2014, they unleashed the follow up album, Rise of the Banshee, with new lineup and a bigger emphasis on hooks and melody. The album featured the song, Deathgasm, which was the theme song to the cult classic horror/comedy movie of the same name which premiered at the legendary South By Southwest Festival. They also toured Australia for the first time supporting US Thrashers Toxic Holocaust.

Fast forward to 2018, Bulletbelt unleashed their third full-length album, Nine Centuries. This epic release continued their momentum, continuing to add more melody while keeping true to their heavy aesthetic. Following a 10 date NZ toured they ventured back to Australia and further afield to Japan.

In 2020, they returned with their fourth album, Warlords, featuring a revamped lineup led by founder Francis and the addition of powerhouse musicians Mekalick, O’Brien and vocalist Paul Roberts. The result was soaring Metal masterpiece that is a beast of an album, filled with catchy anthems and a renewed emphasis on hooks and choruses, Warlords, debuted at #6 on the Official NZ Music Charts.

But they didn’t stop there. In 2023, Bulletbelt released their fifth album, Burn It Up. Featuring new vocalist Diego Attinger, the band took their sound to new heights, incorporating clean vocals and exploring new territories of metal music. The album debuted at #1 on the Official NZ Album Charts, solidifying Bulletbelt’s status as a powerhouse in the metal world. They also toured Europe for the first time supporting Brazilian legends Semblant over 12 shows across the continent.

Bulletbelt have toured Europe, Australia, Japan and New Zealand and played numerous support slots with visiting international acts, including Sepultura, Carcass, Napalm Death, The Black Dahlia Murder, Impiety, Bölzer, Tragedy, Rotten Sound, Midnight, Municipal, Waste, Ringworm, Paul Dianno, and Primate.
