Formed by school friends James Burns (Vocals), Eng Wei Chua (Guitar), Christian Inglis (Bass) and Nathaniel Renouf (Drums) in the early 2000s, Bohica released a number of self financed EPs to kick off their career. In 2004, their debut album, No Apologies’ was released through Casket Records – the spiritual home of some of the most well known underground metal bands in the UK. The album received a tremendous reception from critics and fans alike leading to greater exposure via popular television stations MTV, Kerrang and Scuzz.
Following the success of No Apologies, Bohica continued to gig up and down the UK, and in 2005 began the process of recording their follow up album “Written Ignition”. An album which will show a much harder and energetic side of Bohica to the world. “It wasn’t a conscious decision, simply a natural progression after ‘No Apologies'” states James. In fact, the writing process continued after the first album was released and the band wrote twice as many songs as appear on the new album, choosing to be more selective this time around.
It was a dream come true having the album finalised by legendary Mastering Engineer Eddy Schreyer in his Californian studio, as he had previously worked on some of the bands favourite albums of all time. There were high hopes for the release of Written Ignition in 2008, however, it was much less well received, and proved to be the band’s final album before their breakup soon after.
