...we started recording it in June and we finished mixing it in the middle of September. It was done at Sable Rose studio in Coventry, and Andy Faulkner co-produced. It was the longest we had spent in the studio - we wrote a few riffs and vocals in there, so we made full use of our time in there! It was the second time we had total control over the production and we are still learning, but overall we're pretty pleased with how it came out.Jo Bench / Bolt Thrower interview, Voices from the Darkside, 2001
Honour - Valour - Pride is the only album to feature Dave Ingram (BENEDICTION) on vocals.
We've obviously known him for a long time and always thought he was a great vocalist/frontman, and when he helped us out at the "WFF" festival we realised how well he fitted in Bolt Thrower. The general reaction has been positive - obviously Karl was a hard person to replace, he was part of the band for 10 years, at first it was hard for us too, but we are happy to have a strong line-up again, and now it feels like Dave has always been there.Jo Bench / Bolt Thrower interview, Voices from the Darkside, 2001
[Cover art] was done by Jan Meininghaus. He did the chaos eye design on 'Mercenary' and we liked it so much we asked him if he wanted to do the new one for 'HVP'. He said yes, and that he would like to have a try at doing the cover, we told him what concept we were looking for, and he got back with a really good sketch. There was a lot of ideas going backwards and forwards (thanks again to the internet!) and finally we agreed on the final cover. We always want to be involved in as much as we can in every aspect of the band, so we were 100% involved in all the booklet designs. Gav did the symbols on the lyric pages, and the whole layout was a joint effort between Jan and the band.Jo Bench / Bolt Thrower interview, Voices from the Darkside, 2001
