Bolt Thrower - Honour-Valour-Pride
The British war machine is on the run again! And nothing really has changed! OK, the vocals are handled by former BENEDICTION Dave Ingram, but musically they have not changed a iota of their direction.

Simple riffs and minimalistic, but very effective instrumentation still mark the basic sound of the Britons. BOLT THROWER do not need riff-orgies or frilly parts, their Death Metal works as it is: brutal, simple and effective! But the new opus has been blessed with an even mightier sound and the 9 compositions roll over you like a whole armada of tanks!

The band itself has been responsible for the production, who knows better how this music has to sound like? BOLT THROWER still don't put much on hyper-fast parts, even though here and there they put the pedal to the metal! If BOLT THROWER repeat a riff again and again, then you can barely elude its hypnotic nature.

Who rather listens to music, where you get something new all the time, this is nothing for you! For me, together with "War Master", the best output of the band so far!
