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 by mentally immovable conservatives.

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.

I can truly say, with all my heart, that if you do not like Bölzer, then fuck you!

Ippocalyptica This is BØLZER’s best work since Aura, and if this does not excite you, then you need to take a hard look in the mirror and make some difficult determinations about your path in life. How many two-piece bands can summon such monumental black metal fury as witnessed here? I can think of fewer than five, but do not take my word for it - allow Lese Majesty into your soul and learn what a devastating lighting strike feels like for yourself. Favorite track: Into The Temple Of Spears.

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.

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

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

about

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. Blending the unbridled fury of their early EPs with a matured sense of songwriting and blistering production „Lese Majesty“ showcases BØLZER with the organic honesty and intensity they intend to be heard, whilst heightening hopes for what is to come…

Mixed and mastered by Thomas Taube at Five Lakes Studio, Bavaria
