DUST BOLT release "Children of Violence"

Following their latest, much discussed studio album Sound & Fury (released in February 2024 on AFM Records, order HERE), German metal frontrunners DUST BOLT have released a live version of their 2010-track "Children of Violence"!

The song is now streaming below, furthermore, the band has announced a series of tour dates with HAVOK, and will play many more shows this year. Find all upcoming DUST BOLT live dates listed below!

DUST BOLT's frontman, Lenny B., reveals:

"Bam! The song "Children of Violence," originally from the first demo EP "Chaos Possession" from 2010, is one of the band's earliest creations and holds almost symbolic significance for us and our early companions! Now, it is released exclusively as a live version on AFM Records! The Chaos Possession EP is in very few hands and is practically unavailable anywhere. That’s why it was especially important for us to release a fresh version of "Children of Violence" as a special gift to our loyal fans and supporters! Check out CoV live in Amsterdam and feel the vibe!"

"Children of Violence (Live in Amsterdam)" is now available on all digital streaming providers at:


Since their formation in 2007, DUST BOLT have been resolute and ruthless in their pursuit of metal glory over the last 16 years. Childhood friends with a collective passion for metal in all its various forms, the quartet have established themselves as one of Europe’s leading thrash metal bands. Their latest album, Sound & Fury, refines and noisily redefines the band's sound for a new era. UK magazine The Razors Edge wrote, "with their fifth album set for release, this could well be their breakthrough moment", while Rock Hard Germany is convinced that "Sound & Fury is an album that is as bold as it is varied and unconventional". "A strong, enthralling and varied album!" said Zephyrs Odem, and also confirmed, it's a "brave album and artistically valuable."

Written during those isolated months of pandemic lockdown, Sound & Fury represents the peak of the band’s creativity, and a major leap forward in every department. The first DUST BOLT record to feature new bassist Tom Liebing, alongside Lenny Bruce, guitarist Florian Dehn and drummer Nico Remann, Sound & Fury grew from a long period of self-reflection that began when the world shut down.  "Sound and Fury was created during the probably darkest and most difficult time for the band." Lenny revealed earlier. "First time in our lives, since we were kids, we were somehow separated from another and the dream we lived together seemed to stopped. It was during the pandemic days, when the band even decided to take a break from one another, when Flo came up with this beautiful piece of music - not knowing how he would channel and express our feelings, leading to LB putting some Dust Bolt unusual, but heartfelt vocals on it and having Nico introducing a disco beat to a metal song in the end.  We didn’t know what was happening - we just did it.  We did know, there’d be a million voices saying we can’t put this up on a Dust Bolt record. But more than that we knew „as long as we stick together, we can do anything the *** we want“ . Sound and Fury is a story about friendship, struggle & inner turmoil. SuF is a story about us. SuF is a different, open and honest Dust Bolt, sharing their emotion with you and your friends."

Although still rooted in thrash and old school metal, the new record adds dazzling colour and diversity to the band’s trademark sound. With pummelling grooves, spine-tingling dynamics and a startling, part-melodic vocal performance from Lenny Bruce who also produced and recorded the album, with an analogue mix by Moritz Enders [Revolverheld, Silbermond], the new songs mark the beginning of a new era of DUST BOLT destruction!
