2012 release. Bölzer is a remarkable Swiss-Antipodean duo capable of conjuring up mighty barriers of sound with nothing but a ten-stringed guitar and an almost ritualistic percussion style. The pair describe their own stage experience as a form of spiritual rapture, an atavistic vortex woven together from the profound union of spectacle meeting spectator on a deeper plane. In the interests of extended independence and the homogenous aesthetic they are well known for, the band have taken measures to make the bulk of their popular back catalogue available on vinyl via their own label Lightning & Sons. Roman Acupuncture is Bölzer's visceral yet confidently crafted introduction; Dark neo-classical imagery beset with Nietzschean iconoclasms.
