Bolt Thrower - The IVth Crusade

1992 Earache Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-01

And the war machine keeps turning... Starting off with one of the best opening riffs in my memory, Bolt Thrower continue their path towards world domination. Colin Richardson here honing BT's ever growing skill into a lethal killing machine. In trying to describe what makes Bolt Thrower so good, I'd have to say that the guitars just envelop you, leaving no room for anything else. I've let these gentle sounds lull me to sleep many a night. I guess Bolt Thrower have just perfected their sound here, there's no real musical growth, but it's obvious that each of the members has achieved a level of confidence here which just pours into the performances. Overall sound is supposedly a little too mid-rangy, but man, to me, this shit is heavy! If you know the Bolt Thrower sound, then this is prime stuff for you to enjoy, if you're unfamiliar, well, if unrelenting heaviness is your gig, just buy this. I swear you won't be disappointed.
