With his latest release ‘You Had Me At Hello’ Bulat, the Russian born, England raised current California based guitarist and songwriter, showcases his vast range and musical influences. Exploding with a heavy guitar riff and booming drums Bulat quickly has the listener standing at attention. A mellow left turn quickly approaches as the mood drops to a hush melancholic respite and then is suddenly spun around back toward the dramatic as the pre-chorus and chorus descend down from Rock heaven. Verses are delivered over top a somber tone and sparse military-like snare drum percussion, a stark contrast from the heavy and high energy of the chorus. Bulat further expands ‘You Had Me At Hello’ with a beautiful heavy Blues-Rock end segment that is raw climactic closure.
