Another weekend beckons & time fer some quality sounds. Me has been grooving to this LP recently & fook me silly if it isn't one of the best (& sadly overlooked) albums to have come out of the death/grind scene. And grooving is the right word coz unlike the earlier stuff, the band seemed to have discovered a funky organic groove in their armoury whilst recording this swansong album.
Still as hard hitting as a John Arne Riise freekick to the nether regions, Bolt Thrower seem less like the crushing tank of yore but rather a band jamming after a couple of spliffs whilst Sabbath played in the background.
If the Bolt Thrower had produced this ten years earlier, they'd be fooking huge. But alas, they will always remain a cult even within the underground scene. Which me thinks is precisely how the band likes it anyways. In fact the band has gone an indefinite hiatus as they believe this is the perfect Bolt Thorwer LP & there's little point on recording another one.
So fer this weekend, let's celebrate the works of Bolt Thrower by playing this FOOKING LOUD!
