Bokor offer with “Anomia 1” a debut album which is really – just as promised in the band information sheet – hardly put into a genre.
This makes the whole thing not worse, but surely more interesting. Already the opener “Crawl – The Sermons And Dreams Of John Duncan Thunstall” is unbelievably variable. There are melancholic and depressive sounds as well as modern metal tones, you get whining singing and brutal screaming. And although many bands do not handle to change between different styles, Bokor manage to make their music sound quite well and fitting. Sometimes they remind you of HIM, Opeth or even System Of A Down. The singing is often very close to Placebo.
Only problem with this record is the short duration of only six songs. Nevertheless this album is worth to be bought.
