Landsberg am Lech(DE )
DUST BOLT is a Thrash Metal Band, formed in Bavarian town Landsberg am Lech. The four young musicians (age in average 22) already started playing music together and playing shows very young and early and quickly gained attention. With another bandname they started playing regional shows at first, but were able to play as support act for highly known bands such as Sepultura, Hypocrisy oder Napalm Death very soon. In 2010 they released their first Demo Tape ?Chaos Possession? single-handedly and first time with the name DUST BOLT. Metal Hammer Germany described the Band as Top Newcomer Act in Metal music and ?Chaos Possession? was titled as ?Demotape of the month.? The number of shows increased immediately and the band soon becomes a national known act, when DUST BOLT was able to play their first European Tour with Six feet under. Right after coming home from tour the band was able to win WACKEN METAL BATTLE Germany, which made them playing at Wacken Open Air. The band decided to record their first Longplayer ?Violent Demolition?, which finally made them signing a deal with Napalm Records. Their debut gained major success and was sold around 5000 times worldwide and DUST BOLT was now known as top newcomer act in Thrash Metal in Germany and all over the world, also resulting from their extraordinary live performances. Napalm records also released the first two official music video for the tracks ?Violent Abolition? and ?Toxic Attack? and the band was able to play many club and festival shows in 2013, a Germany Tour with OBITUARY and a long European Tour with Bay Area band HEATHEN. After being nominated for ?best album 2012? and ?best newcomer? at Metal Hammer Awards 2013 and another tour with Crossover band Dr.LIVING DEAD Lenny, Flo, Benedikt und Nico went into the studio again, to record their second album ?AWAKE THE RIOT?, which was released worldwide in June 2014. The second album finally enabled the band to tour as a headlining act and play Clubshows and Festvial all over Europe. The band also joined on a European Tour with Death Metal Legends OBITUARY. Supported by international media, who calls the band as one of the top Newcomer Acts in Thrash Metal, the band continued touring and playing Festivals such as Summerbreeze Open Air or Devilstone Fest in Lithuania and others. Dust Bolt is now concentrating on a new record, which is supposed to be released in summer 2016.
