BOLT THROWER - "MERCENARY" (METAL BLADE)
Did you like "...For Victory"? Did you like "The IVth Crusade"? Then you'll no doubt love this one, too.
It seems like Bolt Thrower have set for themselves a goal of not changing a scintilla of a figment of anything. The new album is totally interchangable with anything they've done on their previous two albums. Different riffs (and sometimes not even too different...the intro to "Powder Burns" will remind anyone of "Spearhead"), Karl Willetts back at the helm. Nothing new under the sun. But it still sounds damn fine.
