Guest review by

Bolt Thrower's approach to death metal is pretty unmistakable. They sound like an oncoming division of tanks… an unyielding and unstoppable juggernaut that will crush everything in their path without remorse.

1994's '… For Victory' finds them in peak form - they have taken their by now familiar formula and refined it to near perfection. While some bands that rely on the same approach again and again often find themselves stagnating and ultimately becoming stale and irrelevant, Bolt Thrower somehow managed to constantly tweak and improve upon their approach with each album, leading up to what I think is their best effort in '…For Victory.'

  Their guitar tone is undoubtedly one of the best in Death metal.

Rating: 9 One of the most engaging and intense war-related albums I've ever heard. Every aspect of the sound, the themes and the lyrical imagery has been thought out carefully and it all makes for quite a visceral and precisely performed listening experience. Certainly Bolt Thrower's defining album.
