BOARGAZM is one of South Africa’s premiere hardcore metal acts, delivering hard, aggressive & groovy slices of top-shelf metal theatrics. Founded by iconic musician Heine van der Walt, the youngest brother of the prestigious “Wolmer” clan. The Wolmer brothers have been involved in countless acts since the early 90s and include famed South African bands Not My Dog, Jack Hammer, Thysis and Vulvodynia. Sporting sci-fi-inspired costumes with a trilogy of albums and accompanying comic books, they tell the story of a rebel band of time-travelling freedom fighters known as “The Pig Whisperers”, who warn the world of the impending Aporkalypse, through the Baconing, all the way to Armagammon. Members include Heine van der Walt (Vocals, Writer, Founder), Chris van der Walt (Guitar, Producer), Jason Hinch (Drums), Cicero Carstens (Bass), and Dale McHardy (Guitar).

Today sees the release of their anticipated new single 'Omikron', taken from the upcoming album Armagammon out on the 5th of May via Mongrel Records. Influenced by classic Nu & Modern Metal 'OMIKRON' plays strongly into Boargazm’s graphic comic theme.

The track is about them crash-landing onto a dangerous planet as vocalist Heine Van Der Walt explains, “It’s a fictional chapter in the album of where they get out of their crash-landed ship and see a whole new weird planet full of danger. The guys are trying to survive the perils of the native alien fauna and flora, as well as running and hiding from their aggressors, so they can setup some traps and sabotage their outposts. Think Rambo on Pandora.”
