Bullet Tooth are proud to release the debut album “No Secret Revealed” from Cleveland’s own Affiance! “Affiance”, meaning to betroth in trust and confidence, is a name that can be taken to heart as these guys have banded together and endured every trial a new band faces. Affiance kicked down doors, shattering expectations, and broke the mold of how metal “should” sound, and are confident that they present a new breed of metal that is intense, with vocals that soar, and live performances that leave the harshest critics in awe.
Brand new and EXCLUSIVE stream of “Nostra Culpa” is available NOW at Listn.to/BulletToothHQ.
Singer Dennis Tvrdik said the song was inspired by one of C.S. Lewis’ books “The Abolition Of Man” and a famous quote by Albert Einstein. The name Nostra Culpa was taken from the quote and is latin for the meaning “Our Fault”. “I believe that the horrifying deterioration in the ethical conduct of people today stems from the mechanization and dehumanization of our lives – the disastrous by-product of the scientific and technical mentality. Nostra Culpa. Man grows cold faster than the planet he inhabits.” – (Albert Einstein)
“We are very excited and we believe, with the help of Bullet Tooth, we will be able to work harder, push further, and accomplish more than we ever have before,” says Brett Wondrak (Guitar). The album is 10 songs of intricately written metal fused with harmonies and vocals that will leave the listener humming along after the first listen. Lyrically Affiance touch on political and religious themes, and lyricist and vocalist Dennis Tvrdik commented, “We are a band that strongly believes in the pursuit of truth and happiness. In order to achieve these ideals we must delve into concepts and that we often don’t want to think about. We hope that through our music we can inspire people to think for themselves and be pro-active in society”.
The band wrapped up a recent full US tour with their friends in Across The Sun (Metal Blade) and No Bragging Rights (Blk Heart Group) and gained tons of new fans in the process. Most importantly, scoring a record deal. When Bullet Tooth Pres. Josh Grabelle saw the band on this tour, he said, “These guys were one of the best live bands I had ever seen. I truly needed to see them play live to make sure Dennis’ vocals weren’t studio magic, and they certainly weren’t! I was blown away. The whole band was incredible, and the songs on this album are gonna knock people’s socks off.” It should also be noted that the night Affiance played in NJ there was a hurricane with 60+ MPH winds and rain… proving nothing will stop Bullet Tooth from seeking out the best new music!
Brett commented on the album, “Releasing No Secret Revealed is an incredible milestone for us. This album is basically the result of us locking ourselves in a room and not coming out until we had songs we all loved. It was pretty intense. Half the time we were productive and the other half we were ready to throw each other out the window. We really pushed ourselves, both musically and lyrically, and what we walked away with was better than any of us had anticipated. It was through the hardship and stress that we established our identity. This album is a testimony of how far perseverance and hard work can take you.”
