Boris/Merzbow - Rock Dream (LP Box Set) Cover Art Boris/Merzbow - Rock Dream (LP Box Set)

The ultra-deluxe 180 gram TRIPLE vinyl with Tri-Fold (3 pocket gatefold) DIE-CUT sleeve!!! Includes the bonus track "Dyna-Saur" not available on the CD version!

Recorded live at Earthdom in Tokyo, Japan on November 18, 2006.

This time round it's a live, psychedelic, mind expanding collaboration with the legendary Japanese master of abrasion: MERZBOW! The two entities are no stranger to collaborative releases and their symmetrical chemistry burns a brightly shining path on this special release. What makes the Boris with Merzbow collaboration particularly interesting is that both Boris and Merzbow seem to leave behind the expected to fully embrace the unknown. The usually harsh, corrosive grate of Merzbow is not as apparent with Boris involved. Also the inspired charge of the Boris rock machine seems to reach new heights with Merzbows' intuitive textures added.

This is however not entirely free-form. In fact the structure of this is what sets it apart from the majority of Merzbow related releases and collaborations. Boris passionately play their songs as they appear on the albums but with Merzbow sharing the stage the result transcends the usual conventions of "rock-song" structure. In the end all musicians have created sounds and atmosphere that retains qualities of each group yet takes the listener to a new plateau.

Boris/Michio Kurihara - Rainbow (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art Boris/Michio Kurihara - Rainbow (IMPORT) (LP)

Extremely limited edition in deluxe packaging!

Michio Kurihara is one of Japan's most respected guitarists and this new work with Boris should give an insight into the latest inspirations for both artists, as these recordings are relatively recent. As we know Boris' collaborations are a way for the artists involved to expand their 'vision' so this will definitely be another worthy experience for all fans. Kurihara's passionate psychedelic guitar and delicate pop styles along with news that Wata sings and plays metalofone/glockenspiel on this release only increases the anticipation.

It's basically a drone-y Boris album with a big touch of psychedelia. The results are fantastic. Give this a listen if you like anything Boris-related.

Boris - Feedbacker (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art Boris - Feedbacker (IMPORT) (LP)



Feedbacker is, like Sleep's Jerusalem, one big song. Also, like Jerusalem, that one song is indexed into a few chunks, just to mark its progress, or something. The five "parts" of Feedbacker are segmented according to the different stages of intensity: the first "track" is nine minutes of feedback/buildup, the second "track" is the Meddle/Maggot Brain portion of the proceedings, the third "track" is the sound of the whole thing crashing like the bottom of Niagara falls, the fourth "track" is the orgasmic finale, and the final "track" is the afterglow. it reminded me quite a bit of Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Blue Cheer, and Meddle era Pink Floyd. It really does feel like an epic journey: if you're not exhausted at the end, you haven't been paying attention. Feedbacker is all about the textures between getting seriously psychedelicized screech out of what sound like about 274,275 pedals to just plain noise to those intricate filigree guitar parts.

Boris are never more than a power chord away from heavy ’70s sludge fuzz, and that’s important to remember because their elemental intensity has a lot more to do with presentation and execution than writing the perfect riff, a point driven home with electric clarity on Feedbacker. It begins at the core, with ambient waves of Earth-like drones rippling across an otherwise silent nine minute expanse before Atsuo spills into his cymbals, commencing a funereal march. Vocals are always a “less is more” matter with Boris. Takeshi finally howls out a few stanzas in long, mournful wails. Wata arcs her echoing feedback up and holds it in a piercing squeal, the drums go half time, the bass grinds like a bulldozer. This is the sound of Boris basking in the wreckage of their rock. Feedbacker is a more pensive, reflective release, closer to Flood than Amplifier Worship, and a step further away from their rock heritage.

Boris master the feedback, it acts at their command in a truly astonishing way. Then, Atsuo hits for the first time his cymbals and snare. They craft a trance-inducing mournful tune, a mind boggling moment of abandonment. It’s slocore that fucks with psychedelic rock for some of the most beautiful minutes of your life. One of those moments when you listen and do nothing and don’t feel like you’re losing your precious, so precious time. When Wata starts her first solo, it feels like you’re reaching a peak that you won’t come close to ever again. How wrong! This whole album sits comfortably on top of almost every other music I’ve heard in my whole life. And then Takeshi starts singing in a way you’ve never heard him do before, sad and fragile and distant and it’s even better. And then things start to get heavier and it’s even, even better. And then you get the “straightest” riffs of the album and then it’s all about rumble, distortion, fuzz hammering and it makes you move as one with the sounds.

Boris - Akuma No Uta (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art Boris - Akuma No Uta (IMPORT) (LP)



The songs are similar in style to Heavy Rocks, with regular song lengths and a 70s rock style. Although these are a tad more emotive, and not all upbeat rockers. There's a couple that are slower, almost morose sounding..

Boris - Pink (Pink) (2LP) Cover Art Boris - Pink (Pink) (2LP)

Limited edition of only 1000 copies on 180 gram pink vinyl! Includes 3 "acid-tab style" sheet-inserts inside a glassine envelope! Deluxe gatefold sleeve!

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 vinegar and buzzsaw guitars. Really strong numbers. The songs that really captured my attention and left me wanting more.

Best Boris yet. Gives you a little taste of everything they do, from the shimmery Feedbacker type stuff, to the ballsy sludge of Amplifier Worship to Heavy Rocks style stuff. Track 7 is my fave it gets going like a runaway train.

This is another great BORIS release (capital letters 'cause it's a loud album). The shoegaze style intro takes you to a beautiful place before the second song starts and kicks you in the face. The album takes off from there with fast style Akuma No Uta tracks but with the heaviness of Heavy Rocks.
