Dust Bolt - Trapped in Chaos

Dust Bolt is a German quartet that has been active since 2012, releasing another three albums and an EP in addition to this.
 
They’re a somewhat crossover thrash band in the vein of Lost Society, Gama Bomb, Municipal Waste and the like, but with a very pragmatic and serious lyrical approach. At times they also reminded me a bit of Kreator’s mid-period to late 80s period or Destruction’s more refined pre-break up moments.
 

Dust Bolt releases new thrashing video for “Dead Inside”

The start of 2019 slams: on January 18th Dust Bolt fire a real thrash-bomb with their fourth longplayer “Trapped in Chaos”.

Dust Bolt emerged in 2006 to encrust Germany and the rest of the world in hefty, Bay Area-influenced thrash metal featuring crossover influences and killer melodies.

The four piece elevates it‘s trademark sound to perfection on fourth album “Trapped in Chaos”: profound lyrics, dark melodies and pure hostility are the ultimate recipe for a thrashfest between retro and modern.
