listening to this for the first time


Mals Marola 10-18-2018 11:43 AM

oh you're into Boris?

FoolofaTook 10-18-2018 01:29 PM

you could say so

FoolofaTook 11-01-2018 12:50 PM

Mals Marola 11-01-2018 12:58 PM

i need to get back on the "boris train" so to speak

but before that, I should probably find my fuckin' headphones :stan:

FoolofaTook 11-01-2018 01:04 PM

my headphones just died as well.

but for boris i would recommend rainbow. that's what made me into a superfan, alongside akuma no uta.

others you should check out are heavy rocks, pink, flood, feedbacker, praparat, smile, etc. i could go on forever.

vomitself, nuff said

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 09:28 AM

giving Rainbow another listen now

in a way, it's the album I thought Pink was going to be - or at least more like it. Certainly more cohesive than Pink came off on the first listen, but I gotta give that one some more spins as well cos I did like quite a bit of it

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 09:29 AM

& yeah those lead tonez on Rainbow are nasty in the best way :stan:

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 09:49 AM

yeah. the dude's name is michio kurihara. boris recorded the songs and sent them to him. then he laid the leads on top. the point of the album was to showcase his playing.

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 09:56 AM

your welcome

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 09:59 AM

prob gonna check out Heavy ORANGE Rocks after this one

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 10:03 AM

oh man that album is crammed full of awesome riffs. just riff on top of riff on top of riff.

btw i listened to some songs off head on the door that were amazing. especially a night like this. i downloaded the album so i will check it out later today.

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 10:11 AM


s'a good one for sure

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 10:18 AM

also last night stoned i listened to a forest and goddamn my mind imploded. will have to check those early albums out again.

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 11:13 AM

well, A Forest is great, intoxicated or otherwise

17 Seconds is hit & miss. The definitive "transitional album"

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 12:43 PM

wow yeah head on the door is great. in particular push.

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 01:48 PM

they played that one live both times I saw 'em

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 02:09 PM

oh nice. when did you see them? and how was it?

Mals Marola 12-17-2018 02:28 PM

2013 at Austin City Limits (it rained, of course, lol)

& 2016 in New Orleans

both were great & they play for-fucking-ever
you never know what the hell they're gonna pull out, basically their entire career is fair game. Definitely not the type of band to just "stick to the hits" though at the same time they're not ones to disappoint a crowd, either

FoolofaTook 12-17-2018 02:40 PM

cool man. i'd love to see the cure in the rain. sounds gloomy!

Graveflower 12-24-2018 03:55 PM

did boris cover the cure or somethign

FoolofaTook 12-24-2018 07:30 PM

I wish!

Mals Marola 12-25-2018 12:11 PM

girlfriend got me 3 random Boris albums last night (along with some other sweet, sweet things) unexpectedly, since she knew i'd been listening to Akuma & shit fairly regularly

Heavy Rocks 2011, Smile & Dear

pr excited to listen :stan:

FoolofaTook 12-25-2018 04:30 PM

wow your gf is the best!

heavy rocks 2011 has some uber-senescent tunes. in particular: check out RIOT SUGAR and AILERON.

Smile is classic Boris. It's all over the place. And Dear is like an amalgamantation of all their styles, with emphasis on DOOM and DRONE.

Mals Marola 12-25-2018 08:57 PM

Smile was actually the first one I was gonna listen to - I actually don't think i've heard any post-2010 Boris save for Noise, but they certainly all look good

FoolofaTook 12-25-2018 09:18 PM

good idea. smile is one of their most accessible albums. really poppy.

is it the japan or the southern lord version? the former has a depressed heart on the cover.

Mals Marola 12-25-2018 09:23 PM

southern lord
