Rest In Metal…We Salute BOLT THROWER Video Essay

The year was 1986, and the band BOLT THROWER was formed in Coventry, England. For 30 years they toured the world, unleashing their own brand of unforgiving DEATH METAL. This week, they called it quits a year after the death of their drummer Martin “Kiddie” Kearns. I feel so lucky that I got to see them live, because they totally blew my fucking mind. BOLT THROWER was one of the few bands that could bring the Punk & Metal heads together in unity! CVLT Nation like to salute them with this huge live footage video essay. Their legacy will fucking live on forever, until we all are head banging in HELL!

Bolt Thrower made this statement:

On behalf of ourselves and Kiddie’s family, we would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and support over the last 12 months. Together with Kiddie’s family we made the conscious decision to keep his unexpected death a private matter, and to take time out to deal with it all.

When Kiddie joined us back in 1994, although he was only 17, he instantly improved Bolt Thrower as a live band, and no one was more loyal to, and prouder to be in Bolt Thrower than him.
We spent over 20 years together, touring the world, with 3 different vocalists, but he was so much more than just a drummer to us. So when we carried his coffin to his final resting place, the Bolt Thrower drummer position was buried with him. He was, and will now forever remain THE Bolt Thrower drummer, our Powerhouse and friend Martin “Kiddie” Kearns.

As for the rest of us, Bolt Thrower has been our way of life for 30 years, never driven by money, fame or ego, but by our own personal principles and values that have guided us through life, and which bonded us as friends long before Bolt Thrower was even formed…

“We are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

– Tennyson – 1833
