The wait is finally over, psychedelic bong-blazing four-piece Boss Keloid have premiered their long-awaited sophomore album Herb Your Enthusiasm via Metal Hammer Magazine.
The critically acclaimed album has been receiving phenomenal reviews and airplay worldwide and is released today via BlackBow Records.
Undoubtedly Boss Keloid are one of those bands you’ll listen to and keep repeating – ‘What the F@CK have I just listened to?’ Stoner Sludge? Southern Groove? Progressive Psychedelic Doom? Without the need to rip their arses open on a pigeonhole, Boss Keloid have simply ticked all the boxes and got on with making music that embodies their no-holds-barred eclecticism. Body swerving trends and transcending sub genres the album boasts 10 huge tracks which wind their way through a myriad of hypnotic low-slung grooves, hulking riffs, captivating hooks and technical bi-polarcore for an experience that is both viscerally discomforting and invigorating.
Recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios (Conan, Electric Wizard, Napalm Death) and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Isis, Conan, Palms) the result is an album that embodies originality, invention and unstoppable creative urges throughout with the added extra of guest vocals from Jon Davis of Conan on ‘Lung Mountain’ and ‘Chabal’.
