Bol is Yugoslavian for 'pain' and this album is dedicated "To the people who still instill hate." Bol has the unique ability to build upon a self admitted Nitzer Ebb drum rhythm and thrust it at the listener with a level of intensity far beyond it's original intention. The music is primarily electronic with a guitar only appearing courtesy of Siedbold of Hate Dept. on two tracks. The lyrics showcase how upset Generation X is at being labeled by the media and most of the samples are taken from really cheesy porn movies. Bol is trying to awaken their listener into accepting the reality into which they've been born and instead of becoming apathetic, to get off their asses and do something about it. The album although being the fourth release by BOL still remains rough around the edges and is grasping at straws for a definitive cohesive style. A perverse social experiment which pierces the veil of accepted decency in an attempt to wake up the minds of today's youth.

BOL is:
Rob Robinson - vocals, programming
Dan Basham - vocals
Kevin Thunell - triggers, keyboards, samples
Brendan Persinger - guitar, noise
Jack Boughner - drums
