Bowser – Whispers From the Wicker Man Album Review

Today we are featuring an alternative/progressive rock band, boWsER, from Gold Coast, Australia. We have reviewed their new album, WHISPERS FROM THE WICKER MAN, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

boWsER is a promising alternative/progressive rock band I discovered a month ago with their new album, Whispers from the Wicker Man, released on March 12, 2021. The band has started their careers with an EP called Modus Operandi in 2007, and released two more singles, People in the Tv (2019) and Supersonic (2020), and one long-play album, Whispers from the Wicker Man (2021). Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Today, I am here with you with a very special band with a compelling blend of classic rock, British rock with the dynamics of punk, the richness of progressive, and the energy of modern alternative rock bands like Foo Fighters. Honestly, while I was listening to the entire album for the second time, I was quite surprised by the professionalism here in the record. Mind-blowing mix with delicious old classic/stoner rock-ish tonings, live performing vibes, fantastic dynamics, incredible drums, and tons of details in each song. For instance, I can imagine how much time they spent while working on the vocals, and coming up with a creative idea for every single piece. This is super impressive and inspiring to me. We all listen to music all the time, I believe, those who worked the most, spent the utmost effort make the difference in the end, such as in this example.

Whispers from the Wicker Man, to me, has so much good to say about the band, their musical understanding, approach, mentality, vibe, energy, and of course, vision. I can’t say this album is going to make it to my top 10 most impressive albums I have listened to lately, yet I am convinced that the band has got a lot of potential. First of all, as I mentioned before, incredible professionalism. Truly, I am well impressed with how the band sounds on this record. They immediately reminded me of some classic bands such as Alice in Chains, Nirvana, in this way, as though I prefer to say these Australian gents are like the better version of Foo Fighters.

The album has different vibes and elements in each song. Some songs are more British rock, some of them are closer to blues-rock, punk rock (a lot of), heavy rock, stoner rock, and sometimes 2000s drop metal sound, which reminded me of Metallica’s unforgivable record, St.Anger. The overall attitude is just fantastic. This is the mood, this is the attitude, man. They have the 90s Alice in Chains coolness in their attitude, and I loved it.

When I put all these together, I feel like these guys only need to have more clear lines in their musical character, and that’s it. In my heart and depending on my experience, boWsER can and should make it to the top league in the industry with their potentials. However, we all know that this isn’t only about releasing fantastic music; it is also about the internet. What is the band busy with? How well can you play this game compared to others? How good they look together? And so on many questions. In this way, I am a little bit disappointed with what I perceived. Honestly, this is the only tool you’ve got to win the game if the band doesn’t know anybody important inside the music industry, and if you’re giving your %200 to your music but only %10 for your artwork, band presence, visuals, release, and promotion, then the record label might ask you, “why do you think boWsER is the right business for me to invest if they’re not already very successful by themselves?”


Technically, Whispers of the Wicked man has world-class status in my eyes. Nothing can beat these lively dynamics; just listen to the drum sounds alone; it’s more than enough. The amount of work here in the mixing is immediately making you feel it. The overall work truly shines when it’s this good-sounding record. In my book, it doesn’t matter what music you make; you have to have the most advanced standards, approaches in your album sound. When you get it done excellently, like in boWsER’s example, you automatically set your bar in the game with your capacity. 

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I enjoyed listening to boWsER. These Australian gentlemen have the artistic vision and mentality, which simply what makes you an artist, and got the potential to get themselves to Foo Fighters’ level. All they have to do is to understand the game a little bit better and work on their weak side; the rest will be just a matter of time!
