Boris - Dear (2xLP)
"We don't feel comfortable calling Dear a return to our slow and heavy style," says Tokyo's amplifier worshipping experimental metal institution Boris. "We've been heavy since day one." And it's true. From the droning thunder of their Absolutego debut and through the cinematic crescendo of albums like Flood, the bombastic licks of the Heavy Rocks records, the punk rage of Vein, the bottom-dwelling psychedelia of Akuma no Uta and Pink, and the grimy thump of Attention Please and New Album, Boris has always attempted to search out new ways to level listeners with their sound.
In the 25th year of their existence, the trio delivers Dear, an album they describe as "heavenly-far beyond heavy." Though Boris has traversed a broad swath of sonic territories, they have always been consistent in their embracing of excess, pushing their myriad of approaches and stylistic forays to points of intoxicating absurdity. But a time came in the early years of their third decade where the band wondered if there were any new horizons to explore. Consequently, it was decided that the band would begin jamming on material for what was planned to be a record that served as a formal goodbye to fans. In a strange twist of fate, being unencumbered by expectations and having an open-ended approach to the writing process reinvigorated Boris.
The renewed vitality yielded an album that fortifies their monolithic wall of sound while also allowing the individual band members to explore the nuances and intricacies of minimalist riffs played at maximum volume. Songwriting for Dear initially yielded three albums' worth of material by the end of 2015, but as the band was slated to spend a large chunk of 2016 on their "Performing Pink" worldwide tour, they decided to hold off on releasing any new material. The tour further rekindled their passion, and when the band returned home they wrote several more songs and scaled the three records down to one.
