Biografia

I Bolt Thrower sono un gruppo musicale inglese death metal formatosi nella seconda metà degli anni ottanta.

I Bolt Thrower presero vita nel 1986 ad un concerto punk rock in un pub di Coventry nella periferia londinese dopo una conversazione tra i due amici Barry Thompson (chitarrista) e Gavin Ward (bassista). Entrambi ispirati da gruppi quali Slayer, Discharge, Sacrilege e Candlemass, decisero di formare una band che suonasse pesante ed aggressiva ma nel contempo originale. Raggiunti da un amico di Barry, Alan West, ne diventerà il cantante, mentre il batterista Andy Whale sarà presentato loro da un amico in comune. Il four-piece iniziò a scrivere canzoni per registrare i due successivi demo In Battle… e Concession of Pain che furono poi spediti ad un dj della rinomata British Radio, John Peel. Nel mentre, Gavin Ward decide di dedicarsi alla chitarra, cosi al basso prese temporaneamente il suo posto Alex Tweedy. Ma quest’ultimo fu quasi subito rimpiazzato da una ragazza, Jo Bench che diede prova di essere la persona giusta per il gruppo completando cosi la line up nel settembre del 1987. Con questa formazione i Bolt Thrower registrarono nel 1988 quattro canzoni per una radio session organizzata da John Peel (The Peel Session) che aveva apprezzato i demotape della band. Dopo la trasmissione, l’etichetta underground inglese Vinyl Solution propose un contratto al gruppo per un solo album e nello stesso tempo il cantante Alan decise di abbandonare per motivi personali.

    Been getting back in to Metal lately, after mostly being in to all sorts of other stuff for the past couple of years... Many these guys kick ass, I have listened to 6/8 or their albums and they are all so fucking consistent! Those Riffs are fucking insane! I really hope they come to the North-Eastern U.S in the near future!

    Absolutely crushed Damnation at weekend! Everyone went nuts for the merch too, they had a security team to hold people back trying to get shirts.

    Years ago, people used to buy a load of shirts at the shows for a good price and sell them on ebay for five times that amount. Giving how often BT tour nowadays, I'm sure you'll find people selling them on ebay with not too much effort, particularly after/during the current tour.

    they could earn a lot of money opening a webshop, but somehow they refuse to do that, for the exclusivity it's cool, but there's a lot of BT fans everywhere else in the world that also want some BT gear, kinda sucks for them... It's good for the lucky fans who managed to see them on tour but... a big bummer for fans who aren't living in Europe... doesn't make em any less 'loyal'... After all, BT did earn it's status because of whatever gear people bought in the early years... whether it's because of people ordering stuff from Germany, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, USA, France,... or even from countries like Australia, South Africa, Brazil, India, Japan,..... just sayin...

    Well, i have my answer: France date, many shirts available at the merch, but unfortunately no sweat, LP, patches or CD... a bit disappointed about that, but about the price, it's unbelievable: 12€ for all shirts. That's what i call a gift, from a band like that, they could easily sell them for twice the price, but they do not want, some bands like Motorhead can't say the same (30€for a shirt at their gig, great, and they're touring everywhere every year every week...). Amazing gig otherwise, don't miss them, it worth every cents you'll spend for your ticket.

    To the lucky ones who caught them on stage for the Overtures of War tour, how is their merch ? I'm especially looking to buy some vinyls (and maybe get a sign :D ? ) at their show if the price is correct, how much about the price and what is available ? Please respond in my shoutbox if you got the information. Gotta see them tuesday, can't wait. I'm gonna exterminate my wallet.

    all this "don't want to put out anything that's not up to par with TOL" is getting ridiculous. C'mon guys it can't be that difficult for BT to make another war death metal album!, even if it wasn't TOL surely they must have written plenty of stuff these past years! If its BT its good enough for me.

    I don't get the point of stopping. So what if Those Once Loyal was the perfect album, so is Carcass' Heartwork, and then they went and made Surgical steel, which is not as good but still GREAT.
