Heavy Rocks (2002): Orange Double Vinyl LPTME778V
Label: Third Man Records
Release Date: 8th September
Been waiting over twenty years to be able to slap this big ol' slab of perfect sludgy doom stoner metal and apply a deep set satisfying stink face throughout twinned with that 'holy smokes that's nice' nod.
Formed in 1992, Boris boldly explores their own vision of heavy music, where words like "explosive" and "thunderous" barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billowing smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way.
This is the highly-requested, unbelievably-anticipated official vinyl and streaming release of Boris's 2002 album and first dive into the stoner rock idiom, originally released in Japan on CD only.
Heavy Rocks (2002) is heavy, sure, but fuses sludge, noise, stoner rock and hardcore all together for a deeply bone-shaking and unforgettable trip.
