“Count on Bokassa to keep serving up absolute bangers” Kerrang’s Sam Law wrote in his
review of Bokassa’s newest full length “All Out of Dreams”, which hit the shelves in February
this year. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. The record sees the band further expand
their self patented brand of stoner punk into a hook-laden Molotov Rocktail of punk,
hardcore, metal, and rock, or as Knotfest put it “This album is a testament to the band’s
knack for creating anthems that are both rebellious and catchy.” Released through Norway’s
Indie Recordings (Satyricon, Cult Of Luna, Wardruna) with guests like Lou Koller, from NY
hardcore legends Sick Of It All, and Aaron Beam from stoner rockers Red Fang, the power
trios new album was hailed by critics all over the world with glowing reviews in Metal
Hammer, Sweden Rock Magazine, Dagsavisen, Powerplay and Rock Hard DE.
Not one to be bothered by trends, matching outfits or whatever else that seem to be popular
at any given time, Bokassa aim to please themselves more than anything. Still the power trio
has managed to play some of the world’s biggest festivals and toured all over Europe and
Norway, supported Judas Priest, Mastodon, Zebrahead, Baroness and of course Metallica.
In 2019 they were handpicked from complete obscurity by Lars Ulrich to support Metallica
alongside Ghost on their summer stadium tour all over Europe, UK and Russia. The
legendary drummer hailed them as „his favourite new band“ and described them as
„Insanely fucking cool“ after hearing the trios first album Divide & Conquer.
Their ferocious debut album was also hailed by critics all over the world and made it on to
several of 2017s «Best of» lists. Metal Hammer UK called the album one of the best debuts
of 2017 and included it in their Top 100 albums of the same year. Their sophomore album
Crimson Riders followed in 2019, and Molotov Rocktail, through Napalm Records, two years
after. In 2020 the band released an EP from their BBC Radio 1 live session at the legendary
Maida Vale studio in London, and was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy as
«Breakthrough of the year».
In 2021 Bokassa was awarded the prestigious «Bendiksenprisen» from their fellow
Norwegian musicians, for their excellent live performances, with the jury stating that “It is on
stage that the music really comes into its own. The winner has a stage presence that not
only asks for the audience’s attention, but outright demands it”! In other words you don’t
wanna miss these guys live!
