There's no denying. The underground has been taken by storm. Bölzer has so far released material that barely scratches an hour in total, yet they have been recognized by almost everyone as a force to be reckoned with. How are they able to create so much with so little?

The hype surrounding the band following the release of Aura last year is proven not undeserving with their second EP. Riffs with a great hook, a thundering old school death metal sound with a bit of a modern twist, and subtle threads of black metal that hold all the seams together. If your expectations were high for this, chances are good you won't be disappointed.

Check out "Steppes" over here.

I went ahead and re-added the EP page. It was removed, in what I'm assuming was a miscommunication. The release date has been delayed, not cancelled.

I certainly agree with the first sentence. Not so sure about the second one, there.

Jesus fucking Christ - I agree with Lit at least that it's more interesting than the previous EP..

Though it completely went down hill for me from about the 2 minute mark and became a yawn fest for about 3 minutes.

You called the same song "more interesting" than the previous EP, but also a "yawn fest". In other words, you found that 2 minutes out of a 5-ish minute song was interesting, which was apparently enough to make the track as a whole more interesting than the *entire* EP that came before it. Do you understand why this would be a confusing comment?

For me, this track is really fucking good. 8+ quality, that's for damn sure. But I'm really not so sure I find it as appealing as anything on Aura. It just speaks to the general quality of Bolzer's work up to now.

Great little EP, as expected. Here's hoping they do a full length next.

Ok, break foot.

Whatever man......... >.>

Still not it. How does it feel like to be pestered like that Joe? Huh? Have a taste of you own medicine.



What is wrong with Joe, did he not read the book and see the film?

First he thinks of knee capping, then of a broken foot...
