BulletHeads film clip Love N War[3] has been featured on ABC's Rage, and numerous other music network TV and Radio stations such as Triple M. In 2006, music critic from the Naked Dwarf[4] declared BulletHead as one of the best heavy rock bands to come out of Australia.[5] In 2007, Alex Hermescec also known as Skuey was declared an alternative guitar hero by NME magazine.[6]

Career[edit]

Bullethead’s debut album, 'Know Your Enemy'[7] is a compilation of 11 tracks of hard core, heavy rock music.[8] Their debut album Know Your Enemy reached some success in the United States and Europe, however did not do so well in Australia.[9] [10] BulletHead's album Know Your Enemy was written by Alex Hermescec and Graham Young, Know Your Enemy was published in 2006 through MGM. Rubikon was well known for breaking attendance records at the main room Metro Theatre and other live venues across Australia.[11] In 2007, the band were set to record recorded their second album GAIA with 25 Gold and Platinum record producer of Prince, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, System of a Down, TOOL, Smashing Pumpkins producer Shivvy.[12] Unfortunately the band dissolved after the "Know Your Enemy" release and half way through the "Get Head" Tour. "After years of hard slogging through the Australian hard rock terrains, we had exhausted ourselves". In Skueys mind, KNOW YOUR ENEMY was a disappointing failure.[13][14]
