DUST BOLT Releases Music Video For New Single “Burning Pieces”: A Fiery Mix of Thrash and Hard Rock Energy!
New Album, “Sound & Fury”, out in February 2024 on AFM Records!
Germany is in the grip of a musical firestorm, and the name behind it is DUST BOLT! The four-piece strikes back with their brand new single, “Burning Pieces,” giving us an explosive taste of their upcoming album Sound & Fury, due out on February 23, 2024 via AFM Records (Pre-Order HERE!). But that’s not all – their new track is a wild blend of thrash metal and hard rock, making the speakers rumble and hearts race.
“Burning Pieces” is a powerful anthem that showcases DUST BOLT‘s unmistakable trademark: their boundless energy and intensity. With furious guitar riffs, thundering drums, and cutting vocals reminiscent of Corey Taylor, the band proves they are in their prime, and heavyweights like Metallica should start taking notice. “Burning Pieces” will carry you away and set you on a rock-induced high. Warning: Neck pain may be inevitable!
Frontman Lenny B. comments on the new single: “We’re bursting with excitement to present our brand-new single ‘Burning Pieces’ to you. This song is a statement: Dust Bolt is back and ready to ignite a musical fire, ready to compete with the big names. It’s an explosive mix of pure energy and passion, combining our thrash metal roots with melodic hard rock elements, and we hope that fans will be just as thrilled as we are.“
“Burning Pieces” is now available on all digital streaming services at https://dust-bolt.bfan.link/burning-pieces, the music video is premiering at:
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 have established themselves 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 another and the dream we lived together seemed to stopped. 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 colour 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 analogue 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 realising 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!”
