Ever since War Master Bolt Thrower has kept their style pretty much constant and so it's not surprising to see that Honour Valour Pride follows the same style. However, the quality of the music does not live up to the early Bolt Thrower releases.
The music is rather dull and monotonous. The new vocalist Dave Ingram I'm sorry to say is not as fitting to Bolt Thrower as Karl Willetts, and this is the only album to feature him. Because the band that has kept their style constant, this album offers nothing new to the table and gives the impression of Motorhead - another album for the sake of another album.
The quality of music is not bad, and if you're keen on Bolt Thrower you'll enjoy the album, however it's the worst Bolt Thrower has to offer, so if you're new to Bolt Thrower consider starting with War Master or Realm of Chaos instead.

Over the years Bolt Thrower have consistanly released brutal Death/Grindcore albums of the highest quality and this is certainly no exception. Right from the opening chord "Honour, Valour, Pride" is a crushing example of precision Death Metal, both in terms of technicality and it's production values. It's all standard Bolt Thrower fare, but who cares when it's this damn good?
