Bosse-de-Nage/II/Flenser Records/2011 CD Review

Bosse-de-Nage are a band from San Francisco, California that plays miminalist black metal with a different lyric approach and this is a review of their 2011 album "II" which was released by Flenser Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some ocassional blast beats, while the bas playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound powerful with some post black metal style riffing.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast miminalist black metal riffing that is very raw and primitive and has the feeling of being played on some cheap amplifiers that enhances the darkness of the music as well as a post black metal feeling to it in addition there is some weird sounding noises being used on the least song and there are little to no lead guitars or solos present on this recording.

Vocals are a mixture of high pitched and distorted sounding black metal screams that have a depressive feel at times, while the lyrics cover some weird themes that have not been attempted by many bands of this style and they are very unique and original in their own way, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound for being recorded in a big studio and while this is not the harshest sounding black metal album I ever hear it still has a very primal sound.

In my opinion Bosse-de-Nage are a very good miminalist black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Marie In A Cage" and "The Death Posture". RECEMMONDED BUY.
