Bolt Thrower are a death metal band from Coventry, England. Their early sound, which was a mix of thrash and hardcore, was mainly influenced by bands
such as Slayer and hardcore groups like Crass and Discharge. As they joined Earache Records, their sound transitioned to something
more agressive and brutal, in vein of bands such as Carcass and Napalm Death. The band takes its name from a weapon in the popular tabletop strategy
game Warhammer Fantasy Battle. They are currently signed to Metal Blade records.
