Little is known about Bay Area enigma Bosse-De-Nage,
since the band rarely plays live, doesn’t disclose its membership, or partake in promotional activities like interviews
or promotional photos.
Nonetheless, the four-piece has a solid and distinct repertoire at their disposal. A cassette demo (released by Aesop
Dekker of Agalloch / Worm Ouroboros / Ludicra fame) and
two full-length albums (on Flenser Records) have made an
impression within the underground, and the band’s vitriolic
mix of minimal black metal, indie rock and post-punk has
garnered reviews describing them as a black metal version
of the legendary Slint.
