Bolt Thrower is one of my favorite death metal bands, and this album is one of their best.
I discovered them later than the other known metal bands but they easily surpassed many other bands that i like.
What good about Bolt Thrower is that they do not have any bad album, all their releases are great and masterpieces.
Too bad the band disbanded but actually that saved their reputation from releasing bad albums in the future.
Willetts vocals are outstanding as usual and he is one of my favorite vocalists.
In fact, these kind of vocals is can be easily tolerant by non death metal fans, who don't like growls.
The instruments are also well noticeable here, the guitars, the bass, the drums give a great eargasm.
Amazing art cover that represents exactly what the album is about and listening to this is like be in a war.
Like an art from a movie or a video game, can stare on it for minutes and test all the details, for me it is important as the music.
I can listen to this album in loops and on every mood, it is never enough.
There is no one bad track in here but top are: 'What Dwells Within', 'Cenotaph', 'Afterlife' and 'Destructive Infinity'.
Any death metal fan should know and own this album, i doubt there is a death metal fan who dislikes it.

For some reason I avoided Bolt Thrower's earliest material simply because it was old. Very foolish thing to do, but I have this obsession with music that came out after I first got into music a number of years ago. It's an odd obsession and I have no idea why or how it came about. So, I decided to conquer my fears and listen to some of the earliest Bolt Thrower full-lengths. To no great surprise, they were fairly awesome. I have come to expect nothing less of Bolt Thrower, Britain's death metal Gods.

Heaviness has always been the key to conquering the masses and swaying their opinions in favour of their music. Once again, it's worked. Death metal was a genre that began with fury and unparalleled ferocity. Over the years, some say it has lost it's way a bit, but with the re-emergence of bands like Bolt Thrower and Suffocation leading the way, it's steadily working it's way back in to the hearts and minds the death metal population. It's not difficult to see why. Bolt Thrower's pounding percussion is unrivalled, Bolt Thrower's heavy guitar riffs are unmatched and their style of war inspired death metal is simply not going to die out. No matter how long they have been around for, their style of play and sheer heavy approach when it comes to creating some of the greatest death metal solo's is never going to get old or tiresome.

Riff after riff is all Bolt Thrower know how to do. Don't think that it's one gigantic mess with riffs that simply don't fit together placed side by side because it isn't. Bolt Thrower have always been able to remain highly creative, yet stay slightly repetitive. This gives the listener the chance to attempt to stand up to their mammoth riffs before being knocked back down to the ground. Bass is an imperative addition to Bolt Thrower, it's what adds that punch to the sound. That's one element however that is different. The production. It's faded and gives an impression of hazy smoke, like you'd have in battle. This isn't a negative aspect, it suits Bolt Thrower's war themes very well.
