Ashford, Kent UK
Bossk are an atmospheric post-everything band from Ashford, Kent, England.
The band released four promising recordings ("1", "2", the "3" DVD, and a split EP w/ Rinoa) on their own Eyes Of Sound label before taking temporary hiatus in 2008. After four years of dormancy, Bossk awoke from their slumber collectively inspired to create in 2012. The band then performed at UK's Damnation Festival In the Fall of 2012, and entered the studio to record the "Pick Up Artist". A seven minute textural epic that is crushingly heavy and uniquely melodic. Crashing forward in two unique movements, "Pick Up Artist" has a hypnotic ebb and flow that carries Bossk passed obvious influences (Neurosis, etc.) as they expand into new uncharted territory. The song was released to the public via free download in the Fall of 2012 to critical acclaim:
"…Bossk are gunning for the vacated crown of post-metal kings. Keep this up and there's a good chance they'll get there…" - The Free Record Blog
"…lives up to the unrealistic expectations I set for it…" - Heavy Blog Is Heavy
"4.5...Superb..." - Sputnik Music
In 2013, Bossk completed a UK Tour (their first in four years) with Dragged Into Sunlight. The band also managed to enter the studio to record a version of Fleetwood Mac's "Albatross". A beautiful track that allows Bossk to explore the more serene peaks and valleys of their ever evolving sound. Deathwish are proud to announce a limited vinyl release of these two spectacular songs as one 7"EP.
“Audio Noir” is a truly transcendent aural experience. Opener “The Reverie” transports the listener to new dimensions through hypnotic repetition and layered instrumentation before taking a turn into stoner doom territory with “Heliopause”. Emotional instrumental ”Relancer” builds to a sonic crescendo while leading to the awesome “Kobe”. A song that shifts a multitude of gears before setting into one of the more chaotic hooks the band has ever produced. “Atom Smasher” then carries some of the heaviest moments of the album before beautifully disintegrating into the touching track “Nadir”. Lastly, Bossk unveil “The Reverie II”, a brilliant ten minute reprise that shows the band at the peak of their creative powers. Solidifying “Audio Noir” as the best kind of masterpiece; a sea change that the music world never saw coming.
