Bölzer

Is there a thread for this band? I could have sworn there was a thread but searched and found nothing.

Aura is great, so is Roman Acupuncture even if it doesn't have the same sound, but it's not too distant from the sound of Aura really.

but then there is...

SOMA


Quote:
Our second EP 'Soma' is currently receiving an audial and visual pampering through the gifted hands of Temple Of Sol and BNB respectively. We are very pleased with what is intended to be the conceptual conclusion in a celebration of dualism.
'Soma' consists of two odes to the goddess Luna, set amidst a thematic backdrop of war and the surrender of the fleshly temple. The tonal and conceptual qualities will contrast the themes of spiritual birth and phallic solar worship offered on 'Aura', ultimately perpetuating the cyclical struggle of energies.
We anticipate her release through the portal of Invictus Productions for late March MMXIV.

Quote:
To any persons hitherto unaware, confused or curious as to the significance of our forthcoming second EP 'Soma', a short notice of clarification:
This 3-Track release is intended to compliment it's predecessor 'Aura' in theme and appearance. The 'spirit'/'body' concept sets a dualistic platform for a cyclic life/death introspective, revolving around war, waged in both the physical and metaphysical spheres.
'Soma' is expecting release early 2014 through the mighty Invictus Productions.


From the horse's mouth.

I used to like Bölzer, but then I read what the ANUS had to say about Aura:
Quote:
Like Oranssi Pazuzu, Bölzer experiment in disorganized slowed black/death/heavy metal with mixed-in weirdo alternative rock. Weirdo alternative rock has existed since early rock bands made a name for themselves by being odd. The problem is that it doesn’t connect to form an impression, only a sense of instrumentalism.





Just kidding, I can't fucking wait for that new EP. These guys are a perfect example of how to put melody in death metal.

Damn I was waiting for a thread on them to show up.

Easily one of my favorite bands right now. Just insane stuff, seriously.

I like Bolzer so much that I bought Aura on cassette.

The release of 'Soma' will unfortunately be delayed by a number of weeks. But fret not, have our assurances that she will sound and look that much better.
An upload of the first song 'Steppes' will also be made for you as soon as we receive the final master.
Godspeed!!!


Disappointing, but my anticipation remains unwavering.

New Teitan Blood, Bölzer, Dead Congregation rumors... Fukk yes.

So Bölzer plays riffs that make me cream my pants. There is a wonderful exploratory feeling to them and they force themselves forward without the conventional Metal "aggression." It is more so a feeling of release. Most Death Metal suffocates; Bölzer exhales. It stands on a hillside of cyclopean landscapes and challenges the ancient starlit nightsky.

And you are cursed to dance for the Wolfshook. What the fukk is a Wolfshook you may ask yourself. What ever it is, you'll be dancing for it.

I am eagerly awaiting to see if they can make a full length that is just as exploratory and wonderfully refreshing. This release will be on Misery's Omen - Hope Dies levels of refreshing if they do.

I love how Aura does not have much sense of Death Metal maliciousness to it, but still brings absolute power to the forefront of the sound.

"Godspeed" applies so well to Bölzers sound.

Soma can't arrive too soon. I wish there was a t-shirt with the Aura design on it.

Perhaps rumors was not the best choice of words. Maybe whispers...

Dead Congregation takes the true spirit of old to a god damn whole new monolithic level. I am looking forward to the universe of total death that their new album is bound to be.

I picked up the Vault of Dried Bones copy myself. It was appropriately mythic.

Why can't all threads on this site be bumped with such a quality string of posts like this? Killer descriptions of Bolzer's sound and great news about the upcoming ep.

Anyone seen those dark green 'zeus' shirts they put out? Unreal looking.

Yeah I bought it. It's sitting at my house a few hours away where I have no access to it which in hindsight was a terrible decision.

Yeah pretty sweet shirt. Prolly will pick up the black one.

I like the green one as well, though

Most of my Metal shirts wardrobe is black. I pick up other color options when ever possible.

The green ones are sick! But I guess not many bands excite people as much as Bolzer does.
