Bolt Thrower is a Death Metal band (well, legend) from Coventry, United Kingdom, formed in 1986. The band was founded by bassist Gavin Ward and guitarist Barry Thomson in a Coventry pub toilet during a hardcore punk gig (source). Bolt Thrower has released two demos, eight full length and one live album. Their name actually comes from Warhammer, the popular tabletop war game developed by Games Workshop. The band’s lyrics and artworks are also based on the game (the artworks of Bolt Thrower’s albums even were provided by Games Workshop).
