Bolt Gun

  • Amplifier 383 Murray Street Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

Like a Pink Floyd epic unfolding in some kind of nightmare dimension, the group takes listeners across the decimated countrysides, through the villages thinned through famine, through the cities choking with fear, and finally deep into the gulags where millions died of starvation, disease, overwork, torture and execution. It is a vision of almost transcendent horror. To their credit, Bolt Gun walk this territory with considerable subtlety - their work is not an explosion of aural violence, but rather a meditative, multi-faceted, and slowly underfolding cinematic journey, which utilises elements of 1970s progressive and psychedelic music, fused with aspects of black metal, post-rock, ambience and drone. Drifting through the wreckage of shattered bone and screaming psyches, we can hear influence from groups like Swans, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, Einstuerzende Neubauten, The Necks, Kharnate and Corrupted.
