Overview

Although it never appealed to mainstream rock audiences, Bolt Thrower wasn't quite as extreme as some of the other bands on England's metal-oriented Earache label (which signed a distribution deal with Combat in the early '90s). Compare Warmaster to Carcass' very hardcore Symphonies of Sickness, and you'll see that this blistering death metal release is a bit more accessible. Lead singer Karl Willetts favors the type of choked, grunting vocals that underground grindcore bands were known for, but unlike such bands, Bolt Thrower isn't always heard at breakneck speed. Bolt Thrower often slows down the tempo, making the morbid lyrics to "The Shreds of Sanity," "Destructive Infinity," and "Profane Creation" easier to understand. Despite Bolt Thrower's limitations, this is a CD that seasoned thrash fans will find invigorating.

When this gem was first ‘Unleashed upon Mankind’,I was 17, was into Metal for about two years, and had hair down to my arse. I bought it because the previous album left a great impression on me.Great yet simple Guitar Riffs,occasional fast and sometimes minimal solos, shit hot rhythm section, and a vocalist with a distinct growl of a voice, yet how very clear the lyrics come across. Which is for me a vital element in this album. Man's inhumanity to Man, mass slaughter of the innocent, Monuments to dead soldiers, all are themes which struck deep within the Me at the time. It is Bolthrowers Masterpiece, but unfortunately their peak also. I love the previous album 'Realms of Chaos, but from 'The 4th Crusade' on it seemed to me they were trying to recapture that spirit and energy that made 'Warmaster' one the best Metal albums of our time. BUY IT NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
