Australian experimental/post-metal outfit Bolt Gun just released their new studio album The Tower, which is now available worldwide on CD, LP and digital, as well as streamable in full on our YouTube channel. The album is released in collaboration with Starved Light, which is in charge of all Australian and New Zealand distribution.
Written throughout 2020 to 2022, the album expands on Bolt Gun’s interest in the dynamic possibilities of using ambient music within extreme metal. The expansive tracks pull listeners into tornadoes of drone, noise and saxophone which then explode into more post-metal/black metal sounds. The music on The Tower is heavily influenced by 2nd wave black metal, experimental heavy bands such as Locrian and Swans in addition to the work of Colin Stetson and Bohren & der Club of Gore.
