"The promise of something thats beneath the clouds
My mind is twisting as I touch the gloom
Dead frequencies call me to come home
With a glimpse of an eye gone forever
I wander through dust I’m on my way to start
To see what’s before to see what’s coming
An anchor dropped as I started to live
Solar waves welcome me as their fellow traveller"
- BOG - Fellow Traveller -
BOG is a four piece post-metal band from Vienna, Austria, founded by Tim Primbs, originally from Germany, as a one-man project and as an emotional outlet to cope with several experiences with death. After releasing two EPs (“Gustave” – 2014, “Auguste” - 2015), three musicians joined BOG to bring the music to life on stage. Tim still does all songwriting, recording, artwork, videos and live-visuals himself to achieve a synthesis of the arts.
Aside from emotional dynamics, narrative guidelines run like a thread through BOGs music. Conceptual songwriting expands to “stations” or “chapters” that are built on two parallel narrative levels: reality and metaphor.
Following the release of his two EPs, BOGs first full-length album will be out on June 24, 2017 with well-known guest musicians from the Austrian and American post-rock scene participating. The album was mixed and mastered by Will Benoit, known for his album productions for Caspian, Junius, Rosetta, City of Ships and Lehnen.
BOG provides a variety of dark, atmospheric melodies and monolithic, powerful riffs. Narrative arcs follow the woven dynamics of the sound: consonance and dissonance go hand in hand with deft changes between silence and harshness. Sonic leitmotifs, ambient layers and authentic songwriting create an unmistakably unique sound.
