Boris
Absolute Go+ (Southern Lord)

By: Jeb Branin

BORIS haven taken their sludge to new highs on this CD... ooops... I mean to new lows. Gone is any pretense of Black Sabbath worshiping riffing and in its place is endless droning noise, bass rumblings and feedback. Yep, BORIS might be called a noise band except this isn't really noise so much as it is the slowest and most drawn out doom you have ever imagined. They have done themselves proud. Compared to this CD continental drift is breakneck. The CD starts out with a quiet hum that reminds me of when my refrigerator starts vibrating and for the next hour and five minutes the intensity increases with more guitar, more noise and more feedback. If you hear something in there that sounds disturbingly like music, that is because there really is music in there... you just got to wait to connect all the pieces. Damn... this seriously kills. I LOVE IT!!!! Every band has got to have their own genre tag nowadays, why don't we call this Sludgehammer Core?
