Heavy Rocks (2011) by Boris
Released: May 2011
Label: Sargent House
Not to be confused with either Boris' 2002 album with the same title or their Attention Please album released on the same 2011 day, this slab o' sludge opens with a lowdown monster-riffed downer-pounder called "Riot Sugar," then oozes from there: Sabbath chords wed to hardcore hoots and hollers, mournful funeral croons exploding rocketship-like into the stratosphere, modernized drag-race rock slowing to a standstill under kitschy "doo doo doo"s, maddeningly sluggish plod-metal disintegrating into the Radiohead ozone. To close, "Czechoslovakia" accelerates from classic doom to murderous thrash.
