sane_kyle A combination of all of the band's efforts so far, Lese Majesty is a thunderbolt that strikes at the very core of the listener. Each track is an ode to ancient rites that rouse the primeval man in all of us. Once again, BÖLZER proves that they are strength made sound. Favorite track: Into The Temple Of Spears.

Mark Lindhout Razor-sharp intelligence in lyrics and musical structure.

This record feels very mature in comparison to other extreme metal. Which is probably also what causes so much opposition. We’d all rather stick our heads in the sand and remain locked in the bubble of safe and protected adolescent rebellion than face the fucking mess we’ve inherited and need to fix, right now.

about

Since their inception 11 years ago BÖLZER have been attracting positive and negative attention alike with their unorthodox approach to a genre fraught with surprisingly conservative dogmas and often outdated elitism. From their unconventional two-man lineup and sparse instrumentation, melodic vocals and generally progressive style, they are no strangers to being strange.

Resuming where the bombastic romanticism of „Hero“ left off, „Lese Majesty“ rings true of it’s namesake, the uncompromising voice of an heretic granted contemporary audience.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Thomas Taube at Five Lakes Studio, Bavaria. Set for release via the band's own label Lightning & Sons on November 15th 2019 and distributed worldwide by AISA Music, „Lese Majesty“ showcases the band with the organic honesty and intensity they intend to be heard.

Track Name: A Shepherd In Wolven Skin
for the mouth of the heretic be blessed
his silken tongue doth line their ears with gold
i am the prophesied antithesis of silence
i breathe the raging winds of old

awaken ye spellbound children of the occident
beware the one who seeketh to sculpture your will
beveiled of face and of reptilian intent
a herdsman is he to all man’s earthly ills

and lo, fear doth flee as the air
hums with the songs of the dead
tremors sweep the heartland
as lips do remember their names

serpents of the sickled star
silent and virulent
servants of the crucifix
restless pacifists
axioms of abraham
spiritual ransom

may the gnashing of teeth for his treachery be heard!
may the somniferous in devout ignorance be stirred!

unmask the rats
the swindler lives
with book in hand
of sword he speaks

thou art my foeman
soon shall the spell be broken
thou art death’s oathman
a shepherd in wolven skin

cheap is his blood and cryptic his name
reigning one-eyed king of the blind
he be a tyrant and he be a saint
cold captor of innocence

harken the return of ancient rites
a synergy of earth and mind ablaze
fates scream with urgency in the night
a storm of steel to grace the break of day
Track Name: Æstivation
o night, o night kiss me
for my heart be thine!
wouldst thy wooded womb welcome a child of mine?
a star-spawned, earth-sworn
wolven man
a prince amongst the shadows of herded men
Track Name: Into The Temple Of Spears
enter the temple of spears
may your fealty be known
clenching your heart like a fist
pounding those strings in rapturous song

lightning and blood
crown the victor’s dawn
he surrenders his will to the gift
heeding destiny’s call

relinquishing flesh unto fire
your legacy burns strong
igniting their minds like a blitz
to awaken a dream is to conjure a storm

these mountains be high
and these winds oh so wild
true your word, keen my step
no path be too long for my fevered desire

my essence absconding unto the night-sky
the flesh below be but a door beyond

dance the blades to gilded halls
your fears be but a shadow
forefathers looming tall
swathed in glory-halos

i enter the temple of spears
with a stride they will fear
clutching my sword as a wish
dancing the blade with furious zeal

hear me now
o ye cowered and torn
i bare thee my chest in contempt
for mine be the fate whence legend is born
Track Name: Ave Fluvius! Danú Be Praised!
idols of gold-plated excrement
rendered spurious by a hammer so real
habitués kneeling delirious
parched tongues begging for peace

heed the blood
it’s voice furious
pulse erupting
invoke the flood
render them spurious
sky collapsing

altars of arid schizophrenia
worm-ridden whores to the wind
harlots of the commandments
sandblasted lungs gasping for truth

washed away by tides of blood
cleansed are they in times of flood
let us pray for what once was

deserts of dogmatic futility
awash with a forgotten past
mono-god in ruinous corpulence
humble prey in the throes of reality

summits drown
tides have turned
lies and drought
washed away, forever purged
thief and fool
king and coward
no man shall
walk away on this day of flood
