Black Hi-Lighter is the type of band that will one day breakthrough the barriers of the music industry and catapult into the intergalactic dimensions of classic rock cult status and beyond, not relenting until they have imprinted their distinct style upon rock 'n' roll history. "Bite The Bullet" screams instant classic-album status with its raw, unprocessed sound that showcases the band's true talent by not masking their exquisite musicianship with overproduction and filters, and its gritty album cover that contrasts the soft beauty of female lips with the steely taste of a bitter bullet. This 12" vinyl features stunning limited edition gatefold artwork by NY artist Yao Xiao. (more info)
“Bite The Bullet” drives forward with distortion and distinction, featuring gritty, stylistic vocals that add an eclectically ethereal sound to is tracks, and the use of all real instruments and no synthetic ones, which only further underscores the credibility of the band’s stunning musicianship. Structured like a bi-polar seismograph with its diving lows and soaring highs, “Bite The Bullet” (song) touches your soul at its deepest chasm as its lyrics relate to every human being’s fear and lamentation of coming face to face with man’s ultimate memento mori-death itself. “Can’t Feel Love” is a swaying rock tune showcasing a stunningly moving and inspired solo that demonstrates that the band certainly can “feel love.” Slowing down a bit to radiate the band’s softer side is “Crushed Velvet”-an anthemically ambitious track that has all the makings of a huge rock hit with its dreamy vocals, moving lyrics, blistering solos, and deep emotional core that will become an iconic symbol for lighters swaying in the cool night air as crystalline tears glisten in each audience member’s watery eyes. Opening with a grooving guitar riff is “Indonesia,” which pulses with a chemical grittiness that just begs you to tap your feet and rock your head to its anarchistic attitude and lyrics that make you feel like a rock star yourself.
