BORIS Reviews

BORIS Amplifier Worship

Album · 1998 · Drone Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Boris tend to vary a bit in releases between more purist drone and drone metal - the distinction being in how much in the way they lean on their post-rock and ambient influences and how many meaty Black Sabbath-on-valium riffs they work into their music. To my ears, the balance on Amplifier Worship is very much towards drone metal; take, for instance, album closer vomitself, which begins in slow doom metal territory and then somehow degrades into a grumbling earth tremor of a track. Goodness knows what the frog on the cover is supposed to represent, but ultimately what metalhead could go far wrong with an album called Amplifier Worship?

True that Earth was first in creating the whole drone metal thing and others like Melvins and Naked City immediately followed in the wake but it was the Japanese noise worshippers BORIS who really created something special in the doom and gloom department with an amplifier feed back so fat it needs lyposuction and bass sound so deep it disturbs slimy earth worms. ABSOLUTEGO is the then quartet’s debut album which originally came out on the Fangs Anal Satan label but has since been picked up by Southern Lord where it features a bonus track.

This entire album is basically one 60:15 long (65:34 on the ABSOLUTEGO+ edition) ripple through feedback and fuzz with a slow pulsating rhythmic march that sounds like a stoned Godzilla prowling the countryside looking for munchies as the feedback twists and morphs and extends to infinity and back to create quite disturbing sonicscapes that eke out all the dread and awe that this type of music was made for.

As the hypnotic rhythm marches on, the fuzz thickens and the percussion slowly evolves until around the half hour mark a cacophonous drum frenzy simulates the chaos of a falling building after a Japanese earthquake or something and then reverts back into the pacified feedback and fuzz march once again. Throughout the album the sounds are jarring and sound like the listener is under the rotating blades of a lawnmower on the verge of being ripped to shreds but never actually going there and only sustaining the impending doom to come.

This is definitely not for the faint of heart as there is no traditional song structure and is pretty much a parade through sonic torture of sort. As drone metal isn’t my favorite type of metal on the scene there are some true standouts and this introduction to the Japanese noise scene combined with jarring metal sounds is one of the best out there. I recommend the edition with the bonus track “Dronevil 2” which is a mere 7:50 in length but adds a different quieter drone ending to the album that doesn’t rely on fuzzy guitars and more on an undulating bass line that reverbs so low it sounds like the subwoofer is gonna explode.

BORIS Flood

Warthur
Taking in the gathering of stormclouds, the unleashing of the storm, the eruption of the floodwaters, and the calm in the wake of the disaster, Flood is a four-part mostly-instrumental drone exploration with occasional sludge metal flavour. Between them, Wata, Atsuo and Takeshi show an adept mastery of mood and atmosphere, showing a tempestuous ability to shift gear abruptly to perfectly reflect the ebb and flow of the natural disaster of drone the album offers. Wata, in particular, by switching between the guitar and the e-bow makes a particularly nuanced contribution to the album. A genuine drone classic by any measure.

Ranging from an opening post-metal sound to heavy psych turned up to 11 influenced by 60s acts such as Blue Cheer or Cream, BORIS continues their unique combination of sludgy riffs and drone doom feedback fuzz with several outros bringing the not-in-no-hurry drone doom band Earth to mind on their tenth album PINK. Apparently there are two versions of PINK. One from the Japanese label on Diwphalanx Records and the one I have from Southern Lord Records. They have different tracks lists with different running times but I believe they are the same tracks in Japanese and English and the ones with longer running times are just extended versions.

This album took on a more melodic songwriting approach than many BORIS albums have. The trio successfully added some catchy tunes to create their fuzzed out doomy atmospheric magic around. The songs range from spacy post-metal that is slow and breezy to super aggressive dissonant yet bluesy heavy psych. There is feedback galore amongst punky rockers and hypnotic repetitive riffs. The last track on my version “Just Abandoned Myself” is a staggering 18 minute plus drony, doomy delight that manages to incorporate the only Japanese sound on the whole album with a samisen or some other Eastern stringed instrument into the mix. If you are looking for some totally spacey, fuzzy and feedback sludge psych then you can't go wrong with PINK, yet another winner from BORIS.

AKUMA NO UTA (The Devil's Song) is the 5th album by the Japanese band BORIS and my first taste of this drone / sludge / doom metal band. One of the most perplexing impressions of this album was that the cover looks exactly like folk singer Nick Drake's album “Bryter Layter” except bassist / guitarist / vocalist Takeshi is displaying his double-neck Ibanez. It is intended to be a tribute and not a parody yet it is rather ironic since the highly distorted sonic stew that BORIS presents is as far away from the placid acoustic folk of Drake as you can get. The cover of the very first issue was a simple white cover with a simple doodle but the US version with Takeshi is the more common one.

I find this to be an exciting album that takes you on a ride through all the styles of metal that BORIS had been dabbling with on previous albums. “Introduction” is the first track which at a staggering length of 9:44 reminds us of the ambient drone metal of Earth. It is an intricate little piece that has more fuzz than a peach orchard. The rest of the album finds the band taking their garage band versions of sludge and punk and post-rock to interesting distorted levels. BORIS really knows how to mix the laid-back with the energetic pieces and add enough diverse elements to make a satisfying album from beginning to end. I've only dabbled in their discography up to this point, but albums like AKUMA NO UTA certainly beckon further exploration, and for anyone who likes the fuzziest sonicscapes out there, look no further than BORIS.

Should there be a separate page for the Boris with Merzbow collaborations?

Check the Sabbat (JPN) discography, then. That one gave Vemehency and me quite some work to do.
