Bolt Thrower's fifth album isn't a radical shift in style so much as a gradual evolution of where they'd been on The IVth Crusade. That's been something Bolt Thrower's done their whole career; contrary to what some say, they never really put out the same album, at least across their first five albums. Whereas The IVth Crusade was a more majestic and epic piece, For Victory is a more much uptempo album; by and large this is still mid paced death metal, but there's a far more upfront sense of intensity here. The quintessential Bolt Thrower riff style are churning, low-end tremolo riffs combined with tight chugs and during this era, harmonized consonant melodies; (without going into Iron Maiden territory); these are all played in such a ruthlessly heavy way that they all feel like a tank rolling over the carcasses of the fallen.
As daylight returns The fires of hope still burn Crawl through darkened light Sickened by the mournful sight. Tears fall from eyes Not sure what has been done Sorrow creeps throughout my soul All is lost, none have won. The battle smoke remains Begin to feel the pain Alone now stagger on Unsure how it began. Through time war prevails Thoughts fears cast aside Face the consequence alone With honour, valour, pride. As fire fills the sky We once believed in life Now time to die.
War is a live album by Bolt Thrower recorded in Manchester 1992, on an 8-track tape. For Victory album, thus it was packed with that album in 1994 in a limited 2CD package. they just replaced the box with a 2CD box and added the second disc. The album is sometimes known or listed as Live War.
On For Victory, Bolt Thrower settled nicely into the slower grindcore dynamic established on The IVth Crusade. The last recording to include drummer Andy Whale, this fifth full-length from the English metal outfit could have signified the end of an era, but Bolt Thrower continued into the 21st century, treading through the same war-torn sonic landscape. The musical growth of guitarists Barry Thompson and Gavin Ward deserves mention, as the twin axe handlers concoct some of their best riffs and tightest performances on For Victory. Highlights include "Lest We Forget" and the epic.
When writing an album that responds to the pain and terror of warfare, you really have to consider three things that are vital to making the consistency and the musical effects themselves as interesting and as engaging to the listener as possible. Firstly, the very thought of how a soldier would feel when going into war.
