You can read my review (in Italian) about the EP "Soma" through the following link:

There were big expectations for the debut album of Bölzer. In fact, this no bass Swiss duo founded in 2008 has succeeded to attract the attention of a lot of metalheads due to their very original sound developed thorugh one only demo and two EPs released between 2012 and 2014, without forgetting their very intense live activity able to bring them to the today underground pantheon. But now that all we were habituated to a specific sound of Bölzer, they have bravely evolved it so to be more original and interesting than before, also if wrongfooting some people, starting with the loopy cover artwork of the debut album of the band. So, here you are "Hero", for which Bölzer have also changed their label because, if before they were under the Irish Invictus Productions, now they belong to the roster of the very respected German label Iron Bonehead Productions.
