From Deathwish Inc.:

Bossk are a metallic post-everything band from Ashford, Kent, England.

In many ways all of us are migrating. To who, or from, is unique to the individual. »Migration« from Bossk is a soundtrack to that herculean journey we all take. Opener »White Stork« is a haunting swirl of analog synth noise and guitars, painting an ominous and fantastic atmosphere. »Menhir« then kicks open the door as a sludge-metal giant of a track, featuring guest vocalist Johannes Persson of Cult Of Luna. Machine-like »Iter« serves as an otherworldly interlude, a pathway to the post-metal masterpiece »HTV-3«. Featuring Palm Reader vocalist Josh McKeown, the song conjures the spirit of Tool and even late-era Faith No More in its sonic twists and turns. Experimental »Kibo« offers a deeper glimpse before fading into the horizon. »Lira« then emerges, a towering giant of a song (nearly 10 minutes in length) that contains one of their most unforgettable riffs to date. All of this leads to the epic »Unberth«. A beautiful slow-build closer that brings to mind Pink Floyd in its vast sonic expanse.
