Bolt Thrower - Realm of Chaos

1989 Earache Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-01

Realm of Chaos comes screaming out of the gate like a juggernaut. Bolt Thrower are definitely one of my favorite bands, and listening to each of their albums is a grueling experience. It seems that most of this album is based on Warhammer 40K, and while listening to ROC, you are almost transported to the battlefield. There is something dark and hypnotic about the guitar riffs, while the drums pound relentlessly. The attack is somewhat looser than on subsequent Lps, but for pure adrenaline value, Realm of Chaos is aptly named, and a must have for any fan of death metal.
