{     BORIS "Flood" (MP3)     }    


Boris are a 3-piece band that makes, to put it succinctly, a fuckload of noise. 'Scuse the French. The band got their name from a Melvins song of the same name, a classic 8 minutes of crushing heaviness.

It is said that when Boris release an album with all uppercase letters like "BORIS" then it is most likely a heavy stoner/rock-ish album, but if lowercase letters are used like "Boris" or "boris" then it is an experimental album, usually drudge or avant-noise. I like that, and if I were to recommend any one album then it would most definitely have to be "Flood". It's basically one song, though I've seen it broken or partitioned off into four parts or movements. The song-slash-album clocks in at a not-too-shabby 70:33 (that's 70 minutes and 33 seconds, for those of you living in Montana). Basically what this album sounds like is exactly how it is named, a flood. Like a good film or book I will not spoil the ending but I will say that the album starts out quietly and peacefully, then slowly builds and builds until the levee just can't handle the weight of the water anymore. And then... well, you'll just have to listen to it to find out.
