For the last 11 years, Bölzer has been unleashing their own maelstrom of destruction. They’ve been called death metal or blackened death metal on past records, and that’s fair, but they also have a strong progressive angle. Their songs are long, and their riffs hedge between brutal and beautiful, often finding a very strong medium. Their latest offering is no exception.

“A Shepherd In Wolven Skin” is an epic track. Picking up where their debut album Hero left off, this continues goes straight down the same path. Things take little time to get into the headbanging territory. The opening riff is catchy and quickly moves into some heavy territory. But as you might expect, the track is more than meets the eye.

Bölzer incorporates clean vocals and whistling on top of skin peeling blasts and loads of beautiful progressions. Sometimes one follows the other without it ever feeling awkward or out of place. It’s one more time that the band showcases how much they can do and how seamlessly they can do it. “A Shepherd In Wolven Skin” is only a taste of things to come. Get ready for Lese Majesty on November 29th.
