"Japanese cult favorite sludge/doom rock trio Boris take their name from a song on grunge godfathers the Melvins' Bullhead album. They also have a lot in common with the Melvins musically, including a fondness for heavily down tuned guitar/bass tones and exceedingly slow tempos. But they also incorporate elements variously drawn from other sources, including psychedelic rock, punk, noise, minimalism, pure sludge-drone music a la Earth, and more. Also, despite the unpretentious psychedelic/stoner rock imagery that accompanies much of their work, there is an ambitiously experimental aspect to much of it. Their albums, for example, have tended to be massive conceptual projects."

Absolutego+ (CD)

Label: Southern Lord   Origin: USA
A re-mixed re-release with bonus track. Along the lines of Earth (quoted on the cover) and Sunn- this CD from SouthernLord is a 2 track CD. The first track is a climatic ambient array of feedback till it gains momentum...breaking into a heavy chunky riff with Japanese vocals (did I mention that is where they are from?) that does the whole record justice...super heavy with tuned down loud guitar and bass riffs with a tight heavy drum section which lasts only a short whil...

Attention Please (CD)

Label: Sargent House   Origin: USA
Iconoclast Japanese trio Boris are widely known for their ability to breach styles and stretch sonic boundaries of all that is heavy, psychedelic, droning and downright cathartic. But, Attention Please is more like a complete redefining of their potential in several ways. First and foremost, it is the first album on which all vocals are sung by lead guitarist, Wata. While she has previously sung on a couple of songs for singles and her solo outings, the entire 10-song ...

Boris
Japanese Heavy Rock Hits v2 (Vinyl 7 inch)

Label: Southern Lord   Origin: USA
On Side A, the title track "H.M.A." is a heady slab of heavy metal tropes, alternating between spacey industrial SFX, hard-driving guitar and the mantra-like chants of the titular acronym. Side B continues with “Black Original”, which echoes the spacey, electronic drive of “H.M.A.”, but cuts out any pretense towards the heavy rock vibe of Boris’ work, instead leaning towards a very basic electro-industrial approach.

Boris
Japanese Heavy Rock Hits v3 (Vinyl 7 inch)

Label: Southern Lord   Origin: USA
On side A, the title track “16:47:52” is an exercise in beautiful simplicity; a down tempo mix of dulcet guitars and a steady snare and hi-hat beats, featuring guitarist Wata's sugary-sweet lead vocals. Side B is Boris all the way with "...And Hear Nothing", a slow droning number that is a spiritual cousin to classic Boris tracks like “farewell and “Fuzzy Reactor”.

Pink (CD)

Label: Southern Lord   Origin: USA
Contains the same extended audio as the original Japanese vinyl version. New packaging created by Stephen O' Malley includes 3 perforated acid-tab cards. Pink highlights three aspects of Boris – their trippy, ambient sound, their Japanese-version-of-Motorhead garage rock, and their psychedelic drone. The predominant style is the traditional, song-structured rock. The title track and “Electric” reminded me of the last Greenmachine album – full of piss and vinega...

Smile (Japan) (CD) (Import)

Label: Daymare Recordings   Origin: Japan
Amazing one of a kind packaging: yellow foam with a die-cut heart! With Smile, the three-piece opts to focus more on their more rock-oriented side, keeping the the drone and doom of past releases to a minimum. Smile's a dense, thick album, and while the writing overall is more accessible than some of their past work, you could spend days trying to peel back all the layers. While the mainstream adulation oils the gears of the hype machine, the music's the engine...
