'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 metal style heard on the 1st album. 'Berserk' is a unique experience of ancient spirited dark/black metal with an avant-garde spirit, 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.
