Boris
 
I have no idea if this band actually fits into the metal forum, but whatever.

Boris are a band from Japan that play drone, doom, and other wierd stuff. They have done collaborations with Merzbow and Sunn O))). They are like Sunn O))) sometimes, but better. And they've been around longer than Sunn O))).

I'm starting to like this band. Anyone else?

PieceOfMind666 12-30-2006 04:38 PM

never heard of em

chylde_of_fire 12-30-2006 04:43 PM

Excellent band. Them >>>>>>>> SunnO)))
They do all kinds of stuff actually, Doom Metal, Drone, Stoner Rock, weird ambient acoustic...

unfathomable_bo 12-30-2006 05:16 PM

I'm not that big of a fan of Borsi for whatever reason. They just don't do much for me.

They're okay. I prefer their more abstract stuff like Amplifier Worship over their listener-friendly records like Pink. I don't like them better than SunnO))) though. Drone should be dark, and O' Malley hits the nail on the head there.

Not necessarily - the last Earth album wasn't exactly what I would call dark, and that was outstanding.
SunnO))) are overrated anyway.

Earth never did it for me either. I'm just fine with SunnO))), maybe throw some Halo or Khanate in their from time to time. But those are bigger names. The really good drone is the stuff way, way underground.

I love me some Boris. Amplifier Worship is my favorite, the screams are rediculous. Well thats my favorite for when I'm really baked.

Naki Kyoku is one of my favorite tracks by them, so relaxed. Great backround music.

Feedbacker is great. So much buildup.

I found a site with their discography, but I probably can't post it here or I'll get banned or something.

Molodov 06-06-2007 10:15 PM

I loooooooooooooooves it

Their new crust album is crunchy and delicious, like cheezits.

xolax 06-07-2007 01:26 AM

Never listened to their stuff, but I love their collaboration with SunnO))) - its freaking amazing.

Nunwhxre 666 06-07-2007 01:56 AM

Boris always kinda bored me. As did Sun O))).

Maybe this drone or whatever you want to call it just isn't for me. *shrug*

unfathomable_bo 06-07-2007 06:14 AM

Boris change their genre A LOT

Listen to Heavy Rocks, it sounds like stoner rock

Alucard II 06-07-2007 12:24 PM

Boris are ****ing AWESOME. they can do no wrong.

mike130 06-07-2007 12:31 PM

I guess I just don't like drone... got the album they did with SunnO))), didn't really like it.

Should I have started with something else?
