NOTE:
\'Berserk\', the 2nd full-length album marks a new era in Bouq\'s history, where the new sound of the band is introduced, leaving behind the groovy death/dark metal style heard on the 1st album & earlier releases. \'Berserk\' is a unique experience of ancient spirited dark/black metal enriched with tribal, barbaric, & warrior-like atmospheres. It is but the first part of an epic & diverse peregrination \'Bouq\' is taking - after \'Berserk\', the focus will be set on the colossal ancient civilizations of the Near East. It is important to note that \'Bouq\' was previously known as \'Phex\' between 2001-2007.
