What's the consesus so far?

Sheol Boundary feels like Hell Interface's AtlantaFugiens, I have faith in that one specifically. Just that Red Moss intro...

Still kind of lost on the Facebook page shenanigans, though. The video just throws me off.

By the way, is that Marcus Twitter account legit? I've seen it being thrown around a couple of times and I still don't know if it's legitimate...

I remember coming across it last year when it had no profile picture and no banner and thinking it was fake.

Now it has a banner image that doesn't appear anywhere else (reverse image search yields no results) and looks remarkably like art they've used on other official channels- particularly the faded hexagon patterns.

Given the synchronized activity across all their accounts, verified and not-yet-verified, and the original banner image, I'm fairly convinced the Mike and Marcus twitter accounts are both authentic.

There's also this instagram account of Marcus, which is followed by Peter Iain Campbell. I kind of think it's legit for that reason except maybe for the fact that one of the accounts it follows is of a videogame streamer. The other accounts he follows are all music related, including Alessandro Cortini of NIN.

It also has the same pfp from the twitter account.

I read over a lot of BOCpages and he seems like a generally nice dude in most of the interactions he's had with Twoism and WATMM in the past. He hasn't said anything in a long time, but was last online ~2 weeks ago. He could confirm whether it's hackers or intentional at least.

Now that’s a genuinely great idea. I wish I thought of that three days ago. Oh wait... ;)

Hope all is well.
He’s alive and well, afaik.

If it's followed by PIC, it's definitely legit. He's the band's photographer, a close friend, and Hexagon Sun member. He was also following the BOC Instagram page before it was confirmed.

It's so weird the things that make people think accounts aren't legit. Why wouldn't Marcus follow a game streamer? Is it unrealistic for musicians to enjoy games and videos about them?

How can you even see the accounts Marcus follows on Instagram? It's a private profile hence you don't see the followers and following. Unless your friend request got accepted? Mine didn't.

Yeah, that's another question- I can't see who he's following either (I somehow doubt my random band's IG request will be accepted, lol). I can, however, see that PIC is following the account, probably because I follow PIC, and that alone guarantees that it's real.

I'm just saying in a general sense, doubting an account is legitimate because he follows a game streamer makes no sense to me.

Unless PIC made a basic rookie mistake. He's human after all?

I brought up that insta account about a hundred or so pages ago. I primarily believe it to be real because he follows an account under the name of "harakiri_diat". This account has a YouTube channel in the bio (and makes it seem as if they own/run the channel). This channel posted the Filmmaker song that was used in SxT before SxT aired. Yeah, plus PIC follows it.

Some of us can see the followers because we followed the account before he made it private. So now, you must be accepted before you can see anything.

I'm not 100% sure it's real. PIC follows it, which is a great tell, but like Fredd-E said this could be a mistake. Maybe PIC and the brothers aren't talking all the time and he just thought this was the real marcus. But, PIC + the Filmmaker fact is pretty convincing in my eyes.

I will admit this did throw me off quite a bit when I first noticed this. Primarily because its not just a "game streamer" but seems as if it's targeted more towards children/teens.

Since the official BOC facebook page recently joined the Board of Canada fb group, I guess keep an eye out for that as well. They may well post some more stuff there.

what is the name of the streamer? The tweet "i figured it out" was also made by a streamer/gamer. His name is "knox" or "swimmingbird16".. If its the same guy, maybe they know each other?

And that's how you accidentally revealed you are an undercover BoC agent :D

I just checked PIC does not follow harakiri_diat on Instagram. At least not anymore?

EDIT: Ok, I guess you meant PIC follows marcuseoin on Instagram. That's indeed still the case.

Has anyone considered that the HI Facebook page was hacked, and the black profile picture/cover photo are simply there to reverse the damage?

Sorry, I'm just trying to balance out the optimism :lol:

If this was the case I would expect both a statement or something from mdg and the page to be deleted.. or some other way to message that what has happened over the last few days is just a ruse or hoax

What're the odds it would've been hacked by someone who has enough BoC knowledge to put on a decent hoax?

Take the Whitney Houston profile pic for example. That photo hasn't been seen (AFAIK) anywhere but the Sheol Boundary channel 8 years ago. And that channel is even obscure among BoC fans. No one still active on twoism remembers it but me (unsurprisingly). It doesn't turn up in image search.

So it seems like either both are legit or both are fake and done by the same person.
