/mu/, I really want to get into Boris but I don't know where to start. I've listened to Akuma No Uta (which I loved) and Amplifier Worship (which I adored) but they have such a wide array of releases I don't know where to go next. Little help here?
Flood and Feedbacker are their masterpieces. Feedbacker is among my favorite albums of all time. Also, you would probably like Rainbow with Michio Kurihara, it reminds me of Akuma no Uta.
If you liked Amplifier Worship, you should also check out the Archive Volumes (the percussionless songs are god-tier drone) or Dronevil (make sure to play both discs at the same time). Altar (w/ Sunn o))) ) is also fantastic. Rock Dream w/ Merzbow is good too.
Pink is probably their most popular album, and it has some great songs on it (My Machine, Farewell, Blackout, and especially Just Abandoned Myself).
Präparat is a much-forgotten recent (2013) album that I like a lot better than Noise, personally.
this is good
in general, releases like Absolutego, Heavy Rocks 2011, Dronevil and the newer pop releases are NOT places to go, they are places to END UP.
the closest thing you're gonna get to the Akuma experience is Pink, second closest is Heavy Rocks 2002.
Amplifier worship is the best Boris made of its kind; flood is the closest to it in ideology and time period IMO but it's way different.
Flood and Feedbacker are GOAT but you may need to give them a couple tries. Acually, definitely give them a couple tries no matter what, but only when you want to hear something new.
confirmed for bad idea.
Good luck anon
Eh, noise was better than the previous 3 albums but it's still nothing great. It honestly sounds like a generic anime-intro-tier japanese metal band trying to make a sludgy Boris record.
Does anyone have a Dronevil link where one disc is playing on one side of my headphones and the other on the other.
I wouldn't know how to do it.
Well, i havent even heard about that ever.
Maybe you can just use a sound editing program and put the songs together and set them on different channels and convert the final product.
i'll do it myself but im on my phone right now.
But if said link exists Rutracker must have that particular arrange of songs
Eh, Noise is like a compilation of all their music history. Some solid tracks, sure. But as a whole album, i was expecting MORE drone in a single album, or just a single genre in an album.
Boris like move around within their comfortable genre zone. I wouldn't expect a single distinct genre album from them unless it's something that loses the point when mixed, like drone.
Disregard that, someone else did it already. He even shared it in FLAC
not with one track in L and one track in R, but this version does have a disc with both discs combined. looks like this in a music player
link's here https://mega.co.nz/#!69YGhK7a!AdUKgASKaxFum596Bzt9KlHsDFsSrBPAOtCQ1HZYe88
fucking huge dl btw, it's 406mb took me forever
appreciate it, anon! Im gonna listen to it and see if i can make the L&R version myself based on your pic
Although, it might have to wait since i got the Dronevil version without Loose and Red
