Boris-Heavy Rocks[2002 Japan Experimental Rock]

Some recent heavy stuff from japan!
one of may favourite Boris records
for a biography go to
this one is only available in japan,maybe in the future
we can expect a release from Southern Lord.

I thought it necessary to review Boris' Heavy Rocks, which is not only my favorite record amongst the bottomless pit that is their discography, or in a mythical, supposed sense of one (I seemingly discover a fantastical seven way picture disc 8" split on some obscuro label site every other day or so), but Heavy Rocks could also contend for an album WHOLLY compromised of uncompromising and unrelenting SICK ROCK... an actualization that hasn't been quite realized since Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. Boris are the only operation that hold an honors PhD in noisy-doom-rock-n-roll, specializing in a type of razor sharp delivery and execution, while simultaneously paying ode to the sweet leaf. And due to the prominent, hyper-detailed fixation on the latter--well, dudes, hate to break it to you--they're probably not even stoned. Yes, they have doomed doom and out-sabbathed Sabbath, all you headbangers can go home crying and cut that hair now. Or just pay attention and take notes on this 2002 opus, that hails somewhat insidiously as an import, still. (Southern Lord, are you reading?) The orange album (Orange Amps!), decorated with Roger Dean inspired-graphics is an instant signifier of the gloriously damaged groove-dirge mammothosity that is contained within. Akuma No Uta is still deemed as a great introduction to Boris' abounding multifold talents, but Heavy Rocks is a perfect prescriptive dose of solid rock 'n' roll, which precluded Akuma's more straightforward rock moments. Though straightforward is contextual within Boris' realm, as they define rock 'n' roll spatially within a realm that embraces various worlds of influences and inspiration, but also extends to crush their rogues and transcend the very predecessors, exalting to a sound that's wildly un-paragoned and truly unique.
