If we don't love, how can we ever take flight
He fills my soaring light, he brings the glow for life"

This will be a historic record. There's nothing not to love - the twisted riffs and lyrics, bizarre song names as usual, multiple kaleidoscopic ideas swirling together, the trippy progressions, the powerful but unforced vocals, the odd time signatures that are used so well. It has some catchy moments, but never stops being interesting.

God damn. Favorite track: Smiling Thrush.

CoughCool I had wished this was included in the Ripple subscription, but it's ok, especially with the discount. I can now revel in this monumental prog-metal masterpiece

about

Hailed as one of the heavy music world’s most unbelievably stunning experiences, Boss Keloid are a band driven by a burning need to move forward.

After earning worldwide acclaim for Melted On The Inch (2018), Herb Your Enthusiasm (2016) and The Calming Influence of Teeth (2013), Boss Keloid’s penchant for producing heavy and magnificently multi-layered music has generated huge support and massive expectations. Rising from the stoner/prog underground in the UK, they've produced some of the most mind-altering, genre-bending music while gaining a reputation for never standing still.

Now the band are ready to take their next step. Having signed to Ripple Music, fans can expect Boss Keloid’s unique voice to ring loud and clear on new album 'Family the Smiling Thrush,' transcending labels like stoner, psych, prog and even metal, fully bursting out of any and all classifications to create something upliftingly fresh and powerfully unique.
