Boris has released a total of three albums this year; two which go in a completely new direction of their music and one that goes back to the heaviness of their old albums. Now, I'm not that big of a fan of their experimental pop electronic stuff, but I do like the idea that they've been able to play so many different genre's now. They can range from heavy stoner metal, doom drone, noise rock, sludge, psychedelic, to even J-pop.
What I really like is the new album they've done called Heavy Rocks. They've already had one album with the same name that was released a while back, but this isn't a remake or anything, but more of a follow up to the previous album that was released back in 2002. It has it's heavy moments, but I wouldn't call it any more extreme than it's 'prequel'.
You can hear the entire album below on NPR.
