A few quotes from Reviews about [b]BOUQ's 2nd album "Berserk":[/b]
"Berserk is a masterpiece, a real underground gem which should appeal not only to fans of exotic stuff but supporters of quality Metal in general" - G.U.C. Magazine

“To hear music of such a quality from a small country like Jordan, places the so-called underground scene in the Western hemisphere in a somewhat awkward position” - A Dead Spot of Light Magazine

"Being musically omnipotent, Muhannad Bursheh can fairly be described as a god of music" - Metality.net

"Berserk boasts the best sound I've yet heard from an obscure Middle Eastern band" - The Heavy Metal Saloon
