      Bolt Thrower's second album (1989).

      Recorded in 1989, 'Realm of Chaos' is still one of the heaviest metal albums I've ever heard (for blast-beat junkies, I'm talking heavy in the murky 'Master of Reality' sense rather than Behemoth). While early British death metal was plagued by bands striving to outdo each other with sickening lyrics, fast drum performances and ridiculously short song lengths, Bolt Thrower sought to make something substantial from their war-themed metal, and the end result is an album every bit as devastating as its subject matter.

      The album's production is rooted in the low end, lending all of the instruments a significantly murkier tone than on the previous album. Karl Willetts' vocals have improved greatly, avoiding his earlier shrieks, while Gavin Ward and Barry Thompson's guitars still indulge in tangential solos but also produce much more satisfying riffs, even veering into doom metal territory on songs such as the excellent 'Through the Eye of Terror.'

      There's a slight grind influence present in some of the faster drum rolls, but it's never permitted to take over, and while the album is consistent and necessarily samey, songs stand out a lot more than they did on its predecessor, making this a vast improvement and an essential death metal purchase.
