Boris with Merzbow - Klatter
The second appearance Boris make on my list is their collaborative effort (one of many) with Merzbow from the Japanese Noise scene. This album represents a side of Boris (and their relatively frequent collabs with Merzbow) all fans would be more familiar with. This is a noisey droney album that does a lot of crazy things to your ears when you listen to it. Featuring a cover and alternate versions of 2 songs from Boris' magnificent 2003 album Akuma no Uta
, you would think that this album lacks new material. But the AnU songs represented are wildly changed to the point that if it weren't for the same title or 1 or 2 trademark riffs noticed in them, they wouldn't be quite the same at all. This almost isn't a "new" album considering it was recorded in 2007, but it did remain unreleased for 4 years which makes it still quite fresh to hear. There's not much else to say about this album, it's just a 44 minute trip into the chaotic and blissful drone, making occasional stops at RockTheFuckOut Avenue.
"Akuma No Uta
" (I choose this song because it's fucking awesome, no matter how many different variations it has appeared in.)
