looks like bolt thrower is calling it a career on the one year anniversary of the passing of their long time drummer and friend martin "kiddie" kearns. 


Martin 'Kiddie' Kearns

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

really sad to see but i have a ton of respect for them walking away. to me they are in the top 2 or 3 death metal bands of all time, going to be sad not being able to see them live.

Alissa White Gluz should be the most recognizable female(chick) voice,growler,beauty frontwoman of metal scene last years,from canadian stupid idol back in 2007,from a semi unknown band called The Agonist,to Arch Enemy (2014),doing guest vocals,backing/clean/growls to Kamelot and touring with them,to Delain too,recently guest to Tarja's Turunen song,envolved in the tribute band Metal Allegiance and shared vocals with voices like tim ripper owens,chuck billy,chris jericho covering Dio's song We Rock,she even had sung misfits songs (Doyle is her "boyfriend").She presents herself as vegan,atheist,activist,anarchist,usually appears with blue hair,soft piercing etc reminding me an emo kind of style.

Another chick that gets famous and popularity fast is elize ryd,she also doing sometimes vocals for Kamelot,she is frontwoman for a pop/symphonic metal called Amaranthe which is meh.

Are we living the revenge of chicks in metal era scene nowdays?:P
