Our favourite South African intergalactic space metal hogs, Boargazm have released their new single “Epsilon” today! The track is taken from the band’s long-awaited new album Armagammon, and features a killer guitar solo by Kris Xenopoulos, resident shredder for metal cohorts, Vulvodynia.
Boargazm guitarist and vocalist Heine van der Walt comments on “Epsilon”
“We couldn’t be more stoked to be back at it again! We’ve experimented a lot with grooves and tunings on the new stuff and we’ve found a sound that is a bit more evolved but still rooted in our own methods. Also having a shredder like Kris Xenopoulos put some of his magic on there is such a treat.”
Guitarist Chris Van Der Walt Comments
“Epsilon is the introduction for the sound of the Armagammon album. We have taken all the elements of music and life that inspire us and mixed them together to form a sound that we like to hear when playing together. It’s always going to be intense, groovy and filled with interesting ideas.”
“Epsilon” is available from today on all digital platforms via Mongrel Records. Crank it up below:
