Bolt Thrower’s Jo Bench – Supreme Rock Goddesses

Bolt Thrower's Jo Bench
Metal Blade

Bolt Thrower is arguably the heaviest band in the world, in no small part to bassist and near-founding member Jo Bench. Perhaps the first woman to come on to the extreme metal scene, she has been laying down the thunder with the English death metal titans for 26 years.

While many women in heavy metal bands are constantly in the spotlight, Bench has remained pretty quiet over the last quarter century and is content with getting on stage, playing no-frills death metal, and windmill headbanging with the rest of the guys. Bolt Thrower have an incredible sense of groove and could never be the same without Jo’s pummeling bass tone and the feel to her playing style.
