Sometimes you can't fight anymore, and you just have to give up the battle. I didn't want to, but I admitted defeat. After years of trying to convince myself otherwise, I've finally thrown in the towel. I've given up trying to like Bolt Thrower. I just don't. I like the attitude, I like the legacy, I like the cover art, I respect their catalogue of work and their accomplishments. But I just don't like the music. I tried. I really did. Add Bolt Thrower to the list of bands I finally just gave up on, including Soulfly, Voivod, Mastodon, Pro-Pain, and a host of others.
