Outside it’s raining harder than an Agoraphobic Nosebleed blastbeat. So hard, in fact, that water’s pouring in through the ceiling. So what better than some nice, relaxing black metal?
Firstly, let’s play a game. It’s called “Try To Say Bog of the Infidel Isn’t An Awesome Name”. You failed, didn’t you? Because Bog of the Infidel is indisputably a nails name. So, well done on that.
On to the music.
Spawned from New England, BOTI have racked up some impessive performances alongside the likes of Skeletonwitch, Inquisition, Cannibal Corpse and a whole heap more.
It’s not surprising, considering the quality of what they’re putting out. Their latest record, ‘Asleep In the Arms of Suicide’, invokes a lo-fi sound that still lets their sinister, relentless and tortured sounds come through clearly.
Vocals are low key, guttural and haunting, while the lead guitar delivers an impressive range of harmonies. the drums absolutely slay throughout and, together with the rhythm guitar, produces one tight record that is guaranteed to be the soundtrack to some of your best nightmares.
Check out one of the stand out tracks from the album, ‘Coils of the Noose’.
