Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich named Bokassa as his “favorite new band,” saying on his radio show(transcribed by UG):
“From the album ‘Divide & Conquer,’ this is the band Bokassa from Trondheim, Norway. I first heard this last week – this is my favorite new band, these guys are fucking insanely cool!
“I heard most of the first record and all the songs are fucking way next level!
“There’s a super cool video called ‘No Control,’ which is a black and white video of them sitting in a bar, drinking beer. It’s like a one shot, and all their friends come up from behind them and help them sing the song and drink their beer.
“I know it doesn’t sound like much of a concept, but it works really well, it’s really cool!”
