Boris release ‘LφVE & EVφL’

Too put Boris in a box is a bit too easy, yes, their music is drenched in doom but Boris are a very unique band with a sound that has shifted and changed through the years. Their new records ‘LφVE & EVφL’, for me personally, is Boris at their peak, at their absolute best. The sound on their new record is sounds like a balance between light and happiness and haunted and filled with dread. Some tracks can be soothing and filled with hope and then you have those riffs and vocals that are dragging doom and ruin with the most gorgeous of guitar solos making that make it even more epic. The album starts with an epic postrock track that speaks of hope, the next track ‘Coma’ is follow-up but the dread is building up. ‘Evol’ is 16 minutes of experimental songmaking, this track is made of epic ambient doom, doomriffs that suck your soul out and postrock solos. ‘Uzume’ is bleak magnificent drone and ‘In the pain(t)’ ambient. The album ends with ‘Shadow of Skull’ wich is my favorite. This is brilliant, take your time and listen to Boris.

The Japanese doomlords Boris are back

Their is going to be a new double LP called ‘LφVE & EVφL’ by the Japanese Heavyweight Boris. We can expect it to land October 4th through Third Man Records. The first track from that upcoming beast is released and is called ‘Love’ and is a gorgeous piece of work. The riffs are tantalizingly slow and create an eerie atmosphere together with the gosthlike vocals. With this track the trio again shows they are masters in what they do.

Tune in for the first track ‘Love’ and pre-order the album here: https://orcd.co/boris_love_evol

Heavy Japanese psych Hibushibire release Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!’

The Japanese band Hibushibire released their debut ‘Freak Out Orgasm!’ in 2017 and it was in instant succes, the heavy psych sound was refreshing and filled with energy. So now the band released their second album on Riot Season Records called ‘Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!’.

The 4 tracks are filled with heavy psych riffs, solos and great vocals. For me it is Hibushibire that nails the heavy psych sound perfectly and build a bridge between the older music and still sounds refreshing. This is the best Heavy psych band at the moment. The album is produces by Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple, Mainliner) wich is a perfect fit.

Gorgeous from start to finish. Tune in for some next level psych and find them and more on ‘The Cosmic Side of Japan’. For more psych go to Fuzzy Sun’s list.

Heavy Japanese psych Hibushibire share first track from upcoming album

2019 is getting better and better, especially when i heard the new new track by the Japanese heavy psychers Hibushibire. Their first album was released on Riot Season Records and was called Freak Out Orgasm! and was an excellent peace of heavy psych.

Now they shared a second track from their upcoming album ‘Turn On, Tune In. Freak Out!’ wich will also be released on Riot Season records. We can expect it around May 10.

The track we can check out is called ‘Blow!Blow!Blow!’ and starts of as heavy psych but after three minutes the track shifts to cosmic psychedelic rock full of trippy guitar work only to fasten up again to sonic destruction.

This is a band that oozes originality and heaviness, check them out now and find them on ‘The Cosmic Side of Japan’.

For more psych go to Fuzzy Sun’s list.
