Bolt Thrower - Honour-Valour-Pride
Looking at the album's title, I'd almost wondered if BOLT THROWER had suddenly gone Power Metal on us! It's like they decided to beat out HAMMERFALL for the title, which I'm sure enraged the ass-hugging leathermen something awful! At least they haven't adopted their sound as well, but I'm asking myself this question a lot nowadays: when will some of these "veteran" bands decide that there is no point in releasing the same thing ten times? Don't get me wrong, I respect BOLT THROWER, they are legends, but I am sincerely wondering why they even bother anymore? You could just seek out pretty much anything else they've ever released and you know what you'll be hearing even before you press "play", and where is the fun in that? Enlighten me!

I understand that in the case of BT, there is a certain appeal to knowing what you'll be getting from them with every album. The band make no mistake that they are all about not wavering from their tried-and-true formula, but there are bound to be those who just don't see the point in this: i.e. - ME! "Honour Valour Pride" is an album by BOLT THROWER, that's about as creative as I can get here. It's got heavy, chunky riffs, midpaced, Death-growls, and that groove we all know them for. Does this oh-so-unique description get your panties all in a bunch? It doesn't do it for me, but I'm not wearing any underwear so...(I like reviewing in-the-nude, it lets me be more objective - and I find clothes rather "restricting" ;-))...

I know there is a point in training your dog to piss and shit in the same general area every time, but one must wonder, might even the dog become bored after excreting in the same place for so long? Wouldn't he/she eventually long for a nice hearty dump or wizz in the flower garden or the laundry basket - for a change of scenery? To break up the monotony? Meditate on that a moment...

Which BOLT THROWER album was this again?
