21. Dust Bolt


I love German thrash. In the good old days, our tutonic cousins embraced the genre with utter abandonment and even in the wilderness years, they managed to keep the flame alive. Dust Bolt are a product of Wacken's answer to Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses and produce Germanic thrash exactly the way it should be. They are fast, frantic and uncompromising. So if Fridays double header of Xentrix and Death Angel had wet your appetite then Dust Bolt is the way to go.
