    Bolt Thrower : Latest News

    On behalf of ourselves and Kiddie’s family, we would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and support over the last 12 months. Together with Kiddie’s family we made the conscious decision to keep his unexpected death a private matter, and to take time out to deal with it all.
    When Kiddie joined us back in 1994, although he was only 17, he instantly improved Bolt Thrower as a live band, and no one was more loyal to, and prouder to be in Bolt Thrower than him.
    We spent over 20 years together, touring the world, with 3 different vocalists, but he was so much more than just a drummer to us. So when we carried his coffin to his final resting place, the Bolt Thrower drummer position was buried with him. He was, and will now forever remain THE Bolt Thrower drummer, our Powerhouse and friend Martin “Kiddie” Kearns.

    As for the rest of us, Bolt Thrower has been our way of life for 30 years, never driven by money, fame or ego, but by our own personal principles and values that have guided us through life, and which bonded us as friends long before Bolt Thrower was even formed...



    “We are not now that strength which in old days
    moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

    - Tennyson – 1833

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    THE best death metal band. Sad to hear this but also it's understandable.

    Glad I got to see them live, the only time I've ever been kicked in the head at a show. It was insane.

    Likewise. Amazing band.



    (Just found out I don't have either of the two albums Kearns plays on. This album actually came out after Kearns quit the band and had a different drummer on it)
