"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

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

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

COMMENT:
'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 extreme 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.
