Boss Keloid Post “Axis of Green” Video


Checking in from the UK to dude up your day come burl-rocking foursome Boss Keloid with their new video shot earlier this year. The UK outfit released their second album, Herb Your Enthusiasm (review here), back in Spring on Black Bow Records, and it’s from that Chris Fielding-produced offering that “Axis of Green” comes. It’s a live clip, essentially, edited by drummer Stephen Arands, but the footage is manipulated in various ways throughout — slow motion like you’re watching tv and seeing something from a character’s perspective who’s been inadvertently dosed or is otherwise out of their mind — and so Boss Keloid have no trouble holding the viewer through their relatively straightforward presentation.

Also helping in that cause is that “Axis of Green” takes a couple stark turns as it makes its way through its 7:43 runtime. This multi-movement take offsets some of “Axis of Green”‘s initial dudely thrust, but no question the song still makes its point in doling out heavy rock testosterone supplements, and as guitarist Paul Swarbrick — joined in the band by Arands on drums, Adam Swarbrick on bass and Alex Hurst on vocals — elucidates below, owning that dudery is pretty much what they’re aiming for. And just in case I haven’t said it enough yet in this post: “dude.”

Enjoy “Axis of Green” below, followed by more info from the PR wire:

Boss Keloid, “Axis of Green” official video

UK psychedelic sludge colossus BOSS KELOID have premiered the new video for their earthquakingly rumbling track Axis of Green. The track is taken from their critically acclaimed sophomore album Herb Your Enthusiasm which was released in April via Black Bow Records.

Guitarist Paul Swarbrick commented: “Axis Of Green is about having the conviction, drive and passion to fulfill personal aspirations in life. Living life, being proud and building on your achievements with the support of those close to you.

“The footage was filmed at this year’s Riff Fest at The Alma in Bolton by Ash Gollings. Our very own drumming nugget Stephen Arands produced and edited the video.”

After the success of 2016’s Herb Your Enthusiasm, Boss Keloid have finished writing their next album and will enter the studio in June 2017 to begin the recording process with Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios (Conan, Electric Wizard, Napalm Death) for production and mastering by James Plotkin (Khanate, Isis, Conan, Palms).
