Akuma No Uta by Boris
Released: Sep 2003
Label: Southern Lord
A combination of their stellar drone debut, Absolutego, the interminable (but also stellar) hour-long doom epic Flood, and the '70s rock they love so much (particularly employed on fourth album Heavy Rocks), Akuma no Uta is the first Boris record to include tracks covering each of these styles, a practice they'd employ throughout their career. While the stoner rock songs are fun as hell, it's the 10-minute opener, "Introduction," that will appeal most to anyone who prefers Boris' taste for fat, super slo-mo riffs and their zeal for senseless, wholesale tube-murder.
