For over 15 years Boris has lead the charge as Japan’s most exciting experimental rock act. Considering their peers and countrymen this is no easy feat. Even stacked up against a lot of their Southern Lord brethren (a roster including some of the hardest-working, forward-thinking artists in music) Boris always stands out as some of the biggest risk-takers, with a voluminous catalogue to back up that reputation.
This fall marks yet another first for the band as they release Japanese Heavy Rock Hits, a series of 7 inches showcasing their wide-reaching, genre-smashing sound.
Volume two, H.M.A - Heavy Metal Addict, features two newly recorded tracks. On side A the title track ’H.M.A’ is a heady slab of heavy metal tropes, alternating between spacey industrial SFX, hard driving guitar and the mantra-like chants of the titular acronym.
Side B continues with ’Black Original’which echoes the spacey, electronic drive of’H.M.A’, but cuts out any pretense towards the heavy rock vibes of Boris’ work, instead leaning towards a very basic electro-industrial approach.
