Choukoku No Niwa : More Echoes, Touching Air Landscape



Boris has released a few drone/doom releases, but sadly this isn't one of them. It is still drone, but the doom in it has been made as minimal as possible. In other words, a minute or so of doom riffage on 'Kanau 2'.

Boris's first track is music fitting to the title of the album. It's soaring drone that seems to linger on a majestic sun, setting over a vast landscape. The second is a sort of nu-metal/noise/drone experiment with psychedelic industrial noises thrown in, a bit like a droner's rave party.

Choukoku No Niwa does the second half of the split in one approximately 25 minute long track.

The track is divided into seven sections. Most of them are tribal sounding with grooving rock elements. The sound is the precise cup of tea for those who don't mind the music repeating itself over and over again, and then some.

I don't know many bands that I can compare this to. At least this is a record that I won't be listening to much because my head keeps repeating the pattern of the music over and over even after the music has stopped.
