HEAR THIS: Boris
Boris have been around for a couple decades, spreading their doom and gloom through demented speakers. From a heavy rock sound to pure bass-filled dread, this Tokyo-based band has honed their own form: where Sunn 0))) is soul-crushingly twisted, Boris crafts passages imbued with the excitement of guitarist Wata and vocalist Takeshi Ohtani (“Pink”).
On their recent release Dear, the band still look to their roots, implementing the essence of shoegaze (“Biotope”) and still rocketing a flair for doom (“The Power”). Blast Boris from your garage and bask in the glory of the low, low notes.
