Saw this and thought you guys might be interested...

UK extreme metal pioneers BOLT THROWER have issued the following update:

"We've spent the last year trying to write songs for a new album, planning to go into the studio this summer. Unfortunately, after a lot of thought, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the recording indefinitely.

"We know everybody says that their new album is better than their last, but with us we really believed that. From day one we made it clear that we'd stop recording when we felt we'd written the ultimate BOLT THROWER album; we just never knew when that would be. We kind of took for granted that each release would get better and better. But we have realized now that our last release, 'Those Once Loyal', turned out to be that album, and basically the new stuff we have written just doesn't match up to it. We have a lot of pride in our back catalogue, and we refuse to turn into one of the many bands (like the ones we grew up listening to) who end up releasing crap, and we're also not prepared to compromise by instead releasing an album of cover versions or a 'best-of' album.

"Sorry to disappoint those of you looking forward to hearing new BOLT THROWER songs, but we always said that we would never release anything we weren't happy with or that, in our view, didn't at least match up to our previous work.

"For those of you living in Holland, Germany and Belgium, you will get the chance to see BOLT THROWER live soon, as there are a few select shows lined up. The confirmed shows are:

"August 7th - Atak in Enschede, Netherlands. This is our second home, and we've played at Atak on every tour for the last 18 years. Sadly, the club will be closing down this month and they will be moving to a new building in the autumn. So we were chuffed when they contacted us and offered to re-open for one night, so we can say farewell to this cult club and be the last band to ever play there. We decided that the tickets will be free and we will be informing you soon on the lineup and how to get tickets.

August 8th - Party.San Festival in Bad Berka, Germany. As headliner we will play a longer set than usual, so expect to hear a lot of songs we haven't played for a while.

"August 9th - Hof ter Lo in Antwerp, Belgium. For this show we will be joined by the best and upcoming bands from the Benelux. The confirmed support bands are: GOD DETHRONED, BORN FROM PAIN, THE SETUP and ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK. Tickets are 11 euros."

Gotta hand it to them... Those Once Loyal was a fucking crushing album. Sad to see them go, but hats off to them for realizing when the magic doesn't feel like it's there.

Good call even though I've waited this album.
Hopefully they still continue doing gigs. Their first visit in Finland few years back was fucking great.

"Indefinitely" can mean they'll be back some day.

Big loss for me, one of my all time heroes and one of the old Bands these Days who dont changed their style to get more money and shit like that, Bolt-Thrower was / is a real underground Band through all the years! I can remeber as i heard "Realm of Chaos" the first time..its more as sad, horrible news!!!

I suppose we'll have to take it as it is.

Nevertheless, these are sad new - even if I'm rather into "In Battle..." than in any other Bolt thrower album right now.

this statement don't say they stop the band! they're probably just gonna write some new materials which they'd consider better than their previously stuff, plus they planned shows.

Exactly! The band isn't breaking up. And anyway...the statement is somewhat void (in my opinion) considering both 'Mercenary' and 'Honour, Valour, Pride' are too very weak & mediocre Bolt Thrower records.

Then they should have done it AFTER 'For Victory' considering the two weak albums they released after that.

Good attitude. Many bands could learn from this.
