DUST BOLT release new album ‘Sound & Fury’ on 23rd February 2024, out on AFM Records.

Formed in 2007, DUST BOLT have been resolute and ruthless in their pursuit of metal glory over the last 16 years. Childhood friends with a collective passion for metal in all its various forms, the quartet has established itself as one of Europe’s leading thrash metal bands.

Yet, Sound & Fury marks an album that refines and noisily redefines the DUST BOLT sound for a new era. Written during those isolated months of pandemic lockdown, the new record represents the peak of the band’s creativity and a major leap forward in every department. The first DUST BOLT record to feature new bassist Tom Liebing, alongside Lenny Bruce, guitarist Florian Dehn, and drummer Nico Remann, Sound & Fury grew from a long period of self-reflection that began when the world shut down.
 “Sound and Fury was created during the probably darkest and most difficult time for the band.” DUST BOLT revealed. “First time in our lives, since we were kids, we were somehow separated from one another and the dream we lived together seemed to stop. It was during the pandemic days, when the band even decided to take a break from one another when Flo came up with this beautiful piece of music – not knowing how he would channel and express our feelings, leading to LB putting some Dust Bolt unusual, but heartfelt vocals on it and having Nico introducing a disco beat to a metal song in the end.  We didn’t know what was happening – we just did it.  We did know, there’d be a million voices saying we can’t put this up on a Dust Bolt record. But more than that we knew „as long as we stick together, we can do anything the *** we want“. Sound and Fury is a story about friendship, struggle & inner turmoil. SuF is a story about us. SuF is a different, open, and honest Dust Bolt, sharing their emotion with you and your friends.”
Although still rooted in thrash and old-school metal, the new record adds dazzling color and diversity to the band’s trademark sound. With pummelling grooves, spine-tingling dynamics, and a startling, part-melodic vocal performance from Lenny Bruce, with an analog mix by Moritz Enders [Revolverheld, Silbermond], the new songs mark the beginning of a new era of DUST BOLT destruction. Simultaneously catchier than any previous record and grittier and heavier than before, Sound & Fury is the sound of a great band realizing their full potential. Or as DUST BOLT states: “This album marks the beginning of a new era for DUST BOLT. For Metal in & from Germany. This is just the beginning!”
