Bolt Thrower - IVth Crusade
Originally released in 1992, The IVth Crusade is the fourth full-length slab from British death metal legends Bolt Thrower. This album was a departure from previous record War Master (1991) with the evolution of the band's sound revealing much slower tempos, heavy riffs and thick tones. Death/doom leaning songs like "This Time It's War" and "As the World Burns" showcase the influence of bands like Candlemass and Pentagram. Bolt Thrower'scredibility in the genre is unquestioned with seminal scouser John Peel being an avid fan. The album has been specially remastered from the original master tapes using 'FDR' - Full Dynamic Range mastering - allowing the music's nuances to truly shine through. It results in a more ferocious and dynamic sound which enables the listener to immerse in the full audio heaviness like never before.
