ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bolus burst out in the Year 2000 , right after the collapse of the 20th century, right at the start of the fresh millenium, in Brisbane, Queensland, then set about writing their debut E.P “Mechanoid Vocation”, which was recorded in 2002 by Jeff Lovejoy. It was subsequently released in 2002 to a great response and the fellas spent the next 2 years doing shows around the South East Corner, honing their live skills to a razor point. Debut 8 track EP "Mechanoid Vocation" is a tasty blend of Rock, metal and smart hip-hop, managing to avoid many of the cliché hazards these genres have to offer- KERRANG MAGAZINE

Bolus are an unsigned four piece hip-hop rock metal group rising from Brisbane Australia, with Robert Marchitto and Damien Burge delivering the cracking guitar and bass riffs, Radovan Matic showing awesome skill on the drums and Adam Douglass on vocals and working in some turntable cuts. 'Sonic Schematics' is a follow up to their 2002 debut EP 'Mechanoid Vocation', which was generally well received into the underground scene. This latest release from the boys show cases their evolution from a band capable of rocking the local pub, to a credible group more than capable of selling records. Sonic Schematics offers smoother vocals and an overall more polished sound which the band developed from nearly three years of touring.
Having never heard any previous material from Bolus before now I was skeptical about an outfit that describes its sound as a cross between Kyuss crossed Tool crossed cypress hill, however this changed as soon as I listened to this album for the first time. The cracking guitar riffs, scorching hip hop vocals and some nicely blended work on the turntables creates a strong likeness to musical giants such as Rage Against The Machine and Public Enemy with some evident metal influences thrown in. Bolus do not follow in the footsteps of many bands and become carbon copies of their influences. They refuse to fall into any particular style or genre of music they are a unique compilation of many musical elements which in my opinion they manage to pull off extremely well, delivering an excellent album which is strong from beginning to end.
review from www.thedwarf.com.au


While elements comes from as far as a field as Cypress Hill to extreme hard rock. Stylish deck work blending with heavy bass driven grooves under textural guitars and thundering skins invoke sonic atmospheres not totally dissimilar to monsters such as Zeni Gever and Tool.RAVE MAGAZINE.

In 2006 the boys headed into Blackbox Recording Studios in Brisbane to lay down the self-produced 2ND EP , "Sonic Schematics", once again engineered by the one and only Jeff Lovejoy and Mastered by Jack the Bear at Deluxe Mastering Studios in Melbourne, due for release MAY 2007 in Australia.

Consisting of 9 songs, “Sonic Schematics” is a blend of Hard Rock, Metal, Groove, Funk and Hardcore Rap, some refreshing true Aussie grit..

AUSTRALIAN GUITAR MAGAZINE


BRISBANE rockers BOLUS have delivered a great hard rockin albumof funk and groove and hip-hop styling. With a , Full Fat rock sound, they integrate intricate riffs. producing several layers of sound on every song. Their songs a tight blend of styles and if you were to categorise just mix 28 days, Cluth and Rage against the machine and you have something close to what you hear on his album.

The strong Funk bass lines complement the guitar extremely well.The track "RESIDUAL" will get the blood pumping with its unrelenting licks and riffs while "UNEMBRYONIC" finishes the album with a chunky riff and plenty of tonal distortion.

Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This cd is one of the most amazing cd's from the new millenium. Theres nothing else as hardcore around. Similar to rage against the machine and linkin park but without the political wank and sing songy bullshit, The rappin is insane which is just how I like it, like B-Real crossed with Pantera. The iron coast ( vocalist ) uses his vocal range like a jedi master which no other motherfucker out there is doin. This cd is a must have!!

Did He Say Something About \'Pumpernickel\'?
The CD sounds like Rage Against the Machine, with the lead vocalist from (hed)PE (the rapping and swearing, but unlike (hed)PE there\'s an overabundance of swearing), who is possessed by the spirit of James Brown (the unintelligible lyrics), and both souls are fighting over the same body. If you\'re looking for a good CD that relies very, very little on the lyrics, then this is a good buy.
