What will their set be like anyway? I'm really only expecting Pink, Heavy Rocks and Smile stuff, maybe some Cloud Chamber or Rainbow, but I can't really see them playing any early stuff...

Well, of course they won't be able to play something off Flood, Absolutego or the like, but I could deffo see some Amplifier Worship in that setlist.

Maybe, but the songs on AW are still pretty darn long, I would be quite pleased if they did one though . it would be great if the first half of their set was Absolutego

It would be cool if they played Intro and Akuma no Uta, I love those two songs.

Are there no setlists available on the net? Of course, for a relatively obscure band like Boris, that might actually be the case, but usually there are one or two rabid fans who are willing to share this kind of information.

Listening to Heavy Rocks for the first time in weeks, man, I forgot how good that album is.
This day will be a Boris Day.

Fuck, Australia's so fucking close! This country fucking sucks, no killer bands come here.

Anyway, on topic, I'm currently on a Smile binge. Flower, Sun, Rain is just orgasmic.

Still have to get to Smile, I'm re-listening to all the stuff I already know right now.

I love this band for trying their hands at so many different genres.

Right, amazing, ears ringing in a weird way, like the ringing with a rotor effect added.

Dat tone was sooo good, sound was spot on, so ****ing crushing. they had a shitload of gear (probably due to them headlining an arts festival here) I was in front of Wata, less than a meter from her guitar, (no barriers)

Setlist was:

Feedbacker (*drools*)
Rainbow
8 (amazing, so good, so excited for more new stuff)
Floor Shaker
Au Bau A Qu
Statement (DUUNANA hooo hooo)
Pink
Korosu (yay)
1970
Farewell (SOOOOOO GOOD)

Encore: This Is The End by The Doors cover, with some dude whose name I didn't hear on vox, they had the most crushing tone and riff in this song, my whole body was vibrating, I think it morphed into something else in the middle but I couldn't tell.

Most diverse crowd ever too, metalheads, hipsters, arty types and pretentious old/middle aged people (remember, arts fest)

I also bought a shirt, Rainbow and Rock Dreams (with Merzbow) so hell yeah

Lastly I made the train home, and was hassled by some drunks (not in a bad, beat me up way)

Awesome night.
#178
Name of the colab was BXI, Boris and some dude with the initials XI

I was wrong his name was Ian Astbury, and this was BXI's world debut performance, **** yeah

They... they played Feedbacker?
Add to this all those other awesome songs, and you getting so near to Wata that you could have touched her... words cannot express my jealousy.

Yes yes, as I said they had a shitload of gear, Wata had 5 cabs (two Orange, two something else) and 4 heads (all Orange), plus her speakerbox thing next to her (this thing can make the riffage huuuge). Takeshi had Two bass heads and a (massive) bass cab, which were vintage ampeg, really good stuff, he had two T-model Sunn heads and cabs for his guitar. Couldn't quite see Michio's set up from where I was, but I think they were Fender tube's.

Plus their pedal boards which basically took up half the area on the stage. (Wata had this really huge silver box with three switches, 3 foot switches and 3 knobs, no branding, or even any writing saying what the pedal did, really want to know what it was...)

And yes, Feedbacker was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

I think it changed to part of an Amplifier Worship song like 8 minutes in, the tone was massive but yes, they did, it was quite interesting too, really ambient soundscapes (both Wata and Takeshi were using e-bows), a cool guitar solo, similar tone to the one in Rainbow and then the massive riffing.

Don't think you'll get to see it though, it might be on the BXI ep that's being released soon.

Wildchild, absolutely brilliant idea. Although I'm gonna one-up all of you, since I'll be stealing Wata and take her home with me.

That's right. My own personal Wata.

On my search for more summery stoner albums, I remembered Heavy Rocks and gave it a spin yesterday. I had forgotten what a great album it is; right from the get-go with Heavy Friends (one of my favourites). It might be a bit same sounding for the most part, as they mostly followed one formula for the remainder of the album, but fuck me, it's a damn good formula - there can never be too many "Yeah!"-choruses. As an added upside, the sound is huge.

Anyway, besides telling the lot of you things we all know, the point of this post actually is to remind everyone of what an outstanding accomplishment Kane (The Bell Tower of a Sign) is. From the achingly beautiful chorus (the harmonies!), to the drawn-out solo and the build-up to the final repetition of the chorus... it's nothing short of perfect.
One of the most emotional and beautiful songs in this genre, and in the whole of metal.

Indeed Kane is a corker of a song, I loooove those harmonies, simply amazing, and you're right, the whole song is just dripping with emotion.

Also, I'd like to say, everyone should get the Sunn & Boris compilation, it's really good, a great mix of both bands.
#199


Anyway, I still haven't listened to anything post-Pink, their frightening productivity (MA lists eight full-lengths in 2006 alone) scared me off. I figure Altar might be as good a start as any, and also a good access to Sunn O)))... I've never really given them a chance.

Sam, I hear Monoliths & Dimensions is another good one by them, any thoughts?

Go to the Sunn thread and read my posts there

(yeah it's good, sooooo good)

And wait, you haven't listened to Dronevil, Rainbow, Smile or Vein? Get on it, Vein isn't that good though, all the others are awesome.

And speaking of Dronevil, I downloaded the combined version last night. I'll give it a listen the way it should be after work today.
