This will probably be in London or Nottingham, UK if I had to guess so, you know, sorry Americans...

"Anniversaries are kind of easy to achieve. For a band, just don’t split up and you’ll reach one, whether it’s 10, 20 or 35 years. And this year we’ve reached ’25 years of not splitting up’!

We managed to stop others from making a big fuss about it, and didn’t give in to the numerous offers and suggestions on how we should cash in on it! But it has made us appreciate the opportunities we’ve been given since 1986, and that we’ve been able to do everything we wanted to do without compromising in any way. We’ve been lucky enough to have played a lot of killer shows with great bands and met a lot of very cool people over the years, and we think that’s the stuff that deserves some kind of celebration.

So, we want to organize a Bolty Birthday Bash, where we can reunite with some of these bands and invite you, the people who have supported us over the last 25 years. We were hoping to have everything worked out by now, but it turns out organizing a free show comes with its own unique problems, but we’ll get there in the end!

Well, that’s all we can say for now, there will be more news to come soon."

My friend from Germany on another forum saw them in the Netherlands show last year, which was like some reopening or something for the first venue they ever played IIRC. It was $5 for a ticket plus you get a shirt and a beer, not to mention Asphyx was direct support. What a fucking great deal that is.

Hot damn. You're only paying for the beer.

Bolt Thrower. The one band I've wanted to see for forever, but will probably never get the chance.

It'll be a fucking miracle if this show is outside of England.

Man it would be so awesome to see Bolt Thrower play in a bar or any small-sized venue

I just looked at the venue's site and they can take out the seats.

What are you talking about? The Forum doesn't have seats downstairs. Upstairs is benches, where everyone blatantly stands up.

Bolt Thrower in the states... good one!

Yeah I'd figure they'd take out the seats for a show like this.

Damn you London!

Autopsy and Bolt Thrower on the same bill is just unfair.

I really, really wish this would come to America. Somewhere. I realize it's a pipe dream, but still.

Are you going to this show? I know you don;t like death metal and I don't really either anymore but BT was pretty sweet the two times I saw them at Maryland Deathfest.

Soooo... is anybody here going to this? I figure Ravenheart will be staying at home. I'd love to see the sets and a review.

There's a guy who reviews stuff here from time to time that lives in England that I'm sure will be there. Can't think of his name.

Well, not exactly "added"... they were on the line-up all along.

And no, I'm not going.
