Over ten songs and 30 minutes, Bokassa is as diverse as ever on their new full-length »All Out Of Dreams«. The power trio offers everything from riffy stoner metal in »Bradford Death Squadron«, almost progressive skatepunk in »No More Good Days«, 45 seconds of metallic hardcore in »Everyone Fails In The End« to laid-back Izzy Stradlin bottle neck-riffing on the desert rocker »Gung Ho«. Not to mention the hooky and anthemic the title track. In other words, the band has not become less fond of mixing genres over the years!
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Madball, Sick Of It All, Halford) in Antfarm Studio in Denmark in June 2022. The band also has guest artists for the first time, in the form of Lou Koller from the NYHC legends Sick Of It All, and Aaron Beam from the stoner rockers Red Fang. It doesn’t get much better when it comes to famous guests on an album, if you ask us!
