“No one has done doom better, for longer, than Bobby Liebling” – SPIN Magazine
“just as moody, punishing, and mind-altering as the band’s cult masterworks like 1987’s Day of Reckoning. Contrary to its title, Last Rites marks a new beginning for the sober frontman and his band” – Revolver Magazine

Bolt Thrower have continued their ‘quality not quantity’ approach to playing live and that has definitely paid off. In 2010 they played a number of shows and festivals across Europe, and from playing more intimate underground shows (in keeping with their roots), they can also pull off playing to a festival crowd of 30,000 people. That’s why, as they reached and moved beyond their 25th Anniversary, Bolt Thrower are still at the top of their game.
Finally, after only a handful of North American dates in the past few years, limited to Maryland Deathfest, Bolt Thrower announced the Return To Chaos tour. The band will perform seven shows across the US in May. The confirmed dates are listed on the TOUR DATES page.
Bolt Thrower adds:
“And it’s our pleasure to announce that for all the club shows we’ll be sharing the stage with our fellow compatriots Benediction; and for the Pomona and Oakland shows we’ll also be joined by the mighty Autopsy!”
More Bolt Thrower vinyl for has been pressed for North America. Those who missed out on Those Once Loyal, Honour Valour Pride, and Mercenary last time around can now order vinyl on indiemerch.com/metalbladerecords.

The deluxe 2xLP also contains an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot. All of the editions are available for order via Relapse Records here and iTunes here.
Book Burner can be heard in its entirety on PIG DESTROYER‘s Band Camp Page.
