Nouvel album « Fleischwolf » sortie le 13 octobre prochain.
Germany is well known for German signing artists artists like Rammstein or maybe Eisbrecher, who already have a massive following outside of their homeland. If you like this kind of music this might be interesting for you to check out.
b.o.s.c.h. are releasing a new video for the song « Schock » (Shock).
You can watch the video right here on YouTube:
The rough sea, the blustery wind, the bracing climate: possibly residents of Germany’s North Sea coast are really more robust than the population of other parts of the country. While the Black Forest clocks up the most hours of sunshine and people enjoy champagne outside all year round in the Lake Constance area, life in Wilhelmshaven takes place under much harsher climate conditions. b.o.s.c.h. have definitely been affected by this fact. The band’s uncompromising toughness, their unmistakeable mix of metal, punk, rock, hardcore, thrash and electronic elements is also reflected by their artistic credo: “We specialise in noise!” guitarist Christian ´Ledde` Heil explains, putting his group’s philosophy in a nutshell: “We rock oldskool and really give it our all.” That’s Heil’s summary of b.o.s.c.h.’s live concept, which impresses with tube amp sounds instead of exaggerated technology gadgets and is driven by a merciless drum/bass beat that brings to mind hammer and anvil. These awe-inspiring parameters apply not only to b.o.s.c.h. concerts but also to their new album Fleischwolf, scheduled for release on Laute Helden/SPV on 13 October 2017. The recording could easily mark the dawning of a new era in which tough German music will not automatically be synonymous with Rammstein, Oomph and Megaherz.
Because b.o.s.c.h. are different, b.o.s.c.h. are unique. When frontmann Max Klee oozes pure aggression from his vocal chords in true Max Cavalera / Jonathan Davis tradition, guitarist Heil fires off raw riffs by the second, relying on the timing of his rhythm section consisting of drummer/programmer Lutz Möller and bassist Axel Mintken, this reflects the deep personal bond between the four musicians. “We don’t just play in the same band, we’re also friends,” Möller explains, immediately belying any romantic ideas of a supposedly idyllic musician’s life: “But of course we argue about songs, ideas, visions. For each of us, it’s all about the best possible result, and of course that’s something we passionately fight over, from our different perspectives and always in accordance with strictly democratic rules. But there are no fundamental disputes within the band.”
Their new album Fleischwolf reflects this deep bond in every single note. b.o.s.c.h. have written twelve songs for their new recording, all of them prime examples of martial power, raw energy and skilled perfection. Their stylistic range includes tough numbers such as ´Reiz mich` and the dynamic, hardcore-influenced ´Du`, pure metal songs like ´Das Spiel` and the harsh thrash track ´Die Jagd`, as well as progressive structures like ´Blender`. When it comes to their lyrics, there’s only one criterion: “The subject matter has to suit the music, it’s got to be cheeky and, if possible, also a little provocative,” says vocalist Max Klee. And although the band refers to itself as apolitical, Fleischwolf features ´Folgemann`, a socio-critical lyric about blindly following a cause. Christian Heil: “The fact that we’ve chosen this subject is due to current developments. There are some things which you can’t just ignore and keep quiet about.”
The new album « Fleischwolf » will be released worldwide via SPV/ Laute Helden October 13th, 2017 (USA and Canada digitally only)
