DUST BOLT is a thrash metal band, formed in the Bavarian town Landsberg am Lech. The four young musicians (age in average 21) already started playing music together and playing shows very young and early and quickly gained attention.

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 and be the winner of 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. The debut gained major success and was sold over 5000 times so far 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.
