In 1998, Mosh looked back at some of Bolt Thrower's rarities with Who Dares Wins, which contains mostly material from the grindcore/death metal band's EPs Cenotaph and Spearhead. This CD isn't the place to turn if you're making your first Bolt Thrower purchase--1991's Warmaster would a better starting point. But then, Mosh didn't release this CD with the casual listener in mind. Who Dares Wins was obviously aimed at the more seasoned Bolt Thrower fan, who will appreciate such rarities as "Prophet of Hatred," "Crown of Life," and "Destructive Infinity" as well as a blistering live version of "Realm of Chaos" and an extended remix of "Spearhead." In spite of its limitations, Who Dares Wins is a CD that the band's die-hard followers will want.
