Migration - DAYMARE RECORDS JAPAN EDITION CD
The Daymare Records Japanese edition of Migration.
'Featuring 2 bonus live tracks from Dunk! Festival in Belgium in 2019. It was our first time playing this event, which we had wanted to be part of for a very long time. Strangely it was the first time we performed a fully instrumental set, and was also the first time the band has ever performed as a 4 piece. Alex our guitarist wasn't able to do this show either so was a very strange show for us all round! To have it captured so well is a great snapshot of the band doing something outside its comfort zone.
Really happy to have this be released on the Legendary Daymare Records. Since before the band existed we all ordered import CDs from them in the pre digital era of music. I own personally about 20 of their albums still, the hunt for those rare elusive bonus tracks was a great memory from that time. So a huge landmark for this band, thank you Tadashi for working with us on this. Also a fitting tribute to the guys in Endon, and Etsuo. This album wouldn't be what it is without their additions.'

In many ways all of us are migrating. To who, or from, is unique to the individual. "Migration" from Bossk is a soundtrack to that herculean journey we all take. Opener "White Stork" is a haunting swirl of analog synth noise and guitars, painting an ominous and fantastic atmosphere. "Menhir" then kicks open the door as a sludge-metal giant of a track, featuring guest vocalist Johannes Persson of Cult Of Luna. Machine-like "Iter" serves as an otherworldly interlude, a pathway to the post-metal masterpiece "HTV-3". Featuring Palm Reader vocalist Josh Mckeown, the song conjures the spirit of Tool and even late-era Faith No More in its sonic twists and turns. Experimental "Kibo" offers a deeper glimpse before fading into the horizon. "Lira" then emerges, a towering giant of a song (nearly 10 minutes in length) that contains one of their most unforgettable riffs to date. All of this leads to the epic "Unberth". A beautiful slow-build closer that brings to mind Pink Floyd in its vast sonic expanse.
