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.
Essential to their catalogue, Boris’ 2003 release Feedbacker will see its first-ever North American issue on October 4, 2019 via Third Man Records. Feedbacker is a constant build that always rewards the listener - making a 10 minute long ambient lead intro to a guitar solo in “Part 2” feel every bit necessary and essential, marrying the heavy and ethereal in a way that only this group has been able to facilitate. “Part 3” begins with a wall of fuzzed-out sound leading into heavy Sabbath riffs and wall-shaking, ominous droning. When vocals hit, the moment feels huge and hallucinogenic, like swimming across an ocean of noise.
Boris's catalogue spans over 20 full-length releases and has landed them as one of the most important metal bands of the new century. Preceding feedback-driven Sunn O))) and astral stoner rockers Sleep, Boris is a staple in heavy music that masterpieces like Feedbacker only solidify.
