Ritual Festival is largely one massive barrage of angry riffs. A relentless spray of heated aggression that is a never ending wet dream for us here at CackBlabbath (and plenty of others by the looks of it).
It’s always refreshing to have a slight change in pace however, and while Bossk are still undeniably heavy; they bring a bit of a sublime craft to our Saturday evening here in Leeds.
Bathed in blue light the Bossk chaps ease us into their set with a little more consideration than most bands to grace the main stage today. For all the ambient soundscapes that have us in a semi trance while we sip on the last of the Red Stripe, there are of course, just as many rollicking great riffs to compliment the airier material.
Vocals are few and far between, so the band appear mainly as a four piece as they captivate us with their post rock and sludge stained bliss.
Having just been added to Bloodstock, it seems this band are in for a busy summer. This performance sticks out as one of the best of the day for many reasons and only wets our appetite to see them in August even more. Hopefully they’ll get a bit more time to strut their stuff and wow us even more.
