Bolt Thrower - The Killchain
By - memedmelon
Bolt Thrower began as (early) grindcore band, heavily influenced by Sacrilege, hence they're hardcore
It’s got hardcore influence and they got grind roots but if this isn’t death metal then Idk what death metal is
Metal and punk/hardcore are incestuous cousins.
it can be both
This is the best bolt thrower song on the best bolt thrower album and I am prepared to fight over this take
roight then, fisticuffs it is m8
A DUEL GOOD SIR?!!
For me any of Realm of Chaos, War Master, IVth Crusade or Those Once Loyal are worthy of the top spot, my answer probably changes based on which one I listened to most recently.
yeah bad take
Your a realm of chaos dork aren’t you?
realm of chaos is better, war master is the best one easily
War master the song has a really tight breakdown but for a cover to cover album I like how those once loyal flows
fair enough, still gotta fight you though
This is the way
How does it feel having this post be the inciting incident for the Bolt Thrower takeover?
This is death metal.
Really really heavy fucking death metal.
Good band and song but that's death metal
Quiet and just listen to fucking bolt thrower
Seconded. I'm all for a little cross pollination, but Bolt Thrower was never a hardcore band.
I'd maybe give the first record a pass for being grind but ya the rest definitely not.
Even for a death metal band, these guys always had some super hard riffs, personal fave is still the intro to Lost Souls Domain
