Boss Keloid formed in 2010, Wigan, UK. Their latest and fourth album ‘Melted On The Inch’ was released on Holy Roar Records to worldwide critical acclaim. It has been described as a “huge, complex behemoth with a surprising uplifting feel” by Terrorizer Magazine, an “enthralling exercise in uber-heavy psych” by Metal Hammer Magazine, a “masterclass in heavy, progressive metal” by Louder Than War, and a “lusciously produced, immaculately crafted piece of music” by Pure Grain Audio. James Scarlett (ArcTanGent’s organiser) cited ‘Melted On The Inch’ as his No.2 album of 2018 and described it as “a wonderful melding of 70s prog and modern doom”.
Kerrang Magazine described Boss Keloid’s recent performance at Bloodstock Festival as a “stunning set of unclassifiable, sort of techy, sort of prog-sludge”, with Metal Hammer Magazine declaring “like the very best bands, Boss Keloid look and sound like a hotch potch of proper weirdos and outsiders. And they’re fucking excellent for it”.
2020 will see Boss Keloid return with their new album.
