We’re this anomaly. We’re in the now, not just the past. We dropped this
massive new record and are receiving accolades from all over the world. It’s
unbelievable and very, very humbling. I wake up every morning and I’m like
,”Wow, I get to talk to you today, bro!” It’s humbling. We worked extremely
hard on Elefante. – Marq Torien
I’m a huge fan of classic hard rock/hair metal in all variations. I love that
Eddie Trunk and That Metal Show (who employ my drummer as their sound guy,
incidentally) support Doro and Kiss and Bulletboys, Krokus and Black
Veil…bands who really give a shit about their hard rock.
Bulletboys were always on the side of the more real 80’s bands like Motley,
Skid Row and Guns who were more focused on hitting the stage hard then the
more superficial aspects of that scene back then. Bulletboys never even really
wrote a ballad. Did you know Marq Torien was even on Motown? Put that one in
your pipe for a little bit. It was an experience Torien said was a huge honor and which shaped him to never take anything for granted.
New record Elefante is everything great and long lasting about this band. Do
you ever wonder why people still pay to see acts like Trixter, Skid Row or Def
Leppard after their “Heydey”? Well, I don’t wonder. Because they are still
great rock n roll bands. Whatever line up you like of Guns or Bulletboys or
Van Halen, those bands fuckin’ own what they do.
