Bölzer did it again! This duo from Switzerland manage again to deliver us very unique and still aggressive mix of black metal and death metal genres, in one EP. After two years of silence in discography “Lese Majesty” coming like a real delicacy for all fans of this type of music. You will not be disappointed. In almost thirty minutes guys came with new songs and very, very good sound. This is not typical black/death album where everything buzzing and making some unknown sounds and noises. I think that Fabian “HzR“ Wyrsch and Okoi “KzR“ Jones had struck a golden line with production on this one. Every pick’s catch on strings is possible to hear, every beat on drums is hearable perfectly. This is almost a perfection when it comes to perfection and black/death metal madness. For me personally the best thing on “Lese Majesty” is that there’s no an insane blast-beats rhythms on the drums. This material works perfectly with mid-tempo drumming and with occasional episodes of a little bit faster beating the drums. That tempo on drums leave clear space for guitars to be heard great and to made a supreme job. Vocals made this EP even better, and pick him up on totally new level of quality. With classic death-ish growls, we are also able to find passages with clean vocals that fits perfectly into this material. Fans of Bölzer will find themselves highly satisfied with new material. Also one new thing is that band is no more on Iron Bonehead Productions or Invictus Productions labels. They had formed their own label Lightning & Sons which will be charged to handle bands releases. This is their first release and it is a killer one. Occultism, death, rituals, paganism and duality are themes that Bölzer wrapped up in “Lese Majesty” and gave us here.
