BUKOWSKI is a power trio from Paris whose members, Mathieu Dottel, Niko Nottey and Julien Dottel, formed the group in 2007.

Their first album « Amazing Grace » released in 2009, followed by an international tour, was enthusiastically welcomed by the press and public alike. And Rock Hard magazine added BUKOWSKI to its list of top bands, placing them between Megadeth and Kiss !

Following on the success of their first album, Bukowski took to the road on a tour of 100+ concert dates throughout France, Europe and Argentina along with a line up that included Mass Hysteria, Gojira, Therapy ? and Fu Manchu, to name a few.

With no plans to slow down the momentum, the group’s second album « The Midnight Sons » was recorded in September 2011 by Francis Caste.

The album’s critical success lead to a major tour in 2011/2012, including live concerts at two of the most important Metal festivals in France: SONISPHERE France 2011 in a line up with Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, Slipknot….and HELLFEST 2012, featuring Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, Ozzy Osbourne, Refused…

The album was voted Best Rock Album of 2011 by Ouï FM listeners, and shortly after, in December of 2012, BUKOWSKI received ‘best French group’ honours at the Hellfest Edition of 2012 !

BUKOWSKI’s rapid rise is a clear sign of a promising future for French Metal that seems pretty much unstoppable today.
The BUKOWSKI family gets bigger, Fred Duquesne officiates from now on as second guitarist within the band.

2013 seems sure to be the year BUKOWSKI makes a major name for itself, with a planned release of their new album at the beginning of 2013 on Verycords / Warner.
