A bit disappointing

"Bolt Thrower is a great band, but something about this compilation just didn't do it for me. It probably has to do most with production quality. A lot of the songs here would be awesome if you could actually HEAR them better. Especially the live tracks. Not that I expect all the older, rarer stuff to be absolute top-notch quality, but the live recordings on here get so garbled that I find them hardly worth listening to. On the upside, the new 'World Eater' track is interesting and 'Dying Creed' is definitely one of Bolt Thrower's best songs (at least out of what's included on this compilation). I actually gave 'Dying Creed' quite a bit of air time on the radio while DJing in Nashville, TN. Though there is some good stuff on this album, I would only truly recommend it to people who are already fans. Otherwise, I'd suggest starting out with something that's already well established with better production quality."
Wana play king of the mountain?

"Well, you have to topple these guys first. Bolt Thrower's simplistic yet catchy style of death/grind/doom/thrash metal bulldozes over any and all commers without quarter. One of the most devastatingly brutal bands I have ever heard. "Who Dares Wins" is a compilation of some songs (mostly rare tracks) from their earlier recordings (Warmaster, Realm of Chaos era) and puts them all one one CD. A great introduction for a new listener and a great addition to any existing collection. Any fan of truly brutal metal is sure to appreciate this album and this band."

"One of the best produced offerings Bolt Thrower has made available. A good selection of their classics in a crisp-sounding format. Experience "Cenotaph" and the new "World-Eater". Cheers, Bolt Thrower!"
