Boris - No

It's quarantine, existence is pain and Boris have a new album out that they are self releasing appropriately titled No. The band goes far beyond their roots on this one with a punk rock driven assault on the senses. With big choruses and driving rhythm sections, this is a record that stands apart in the bands discography. While we certainly can still find their trademark waves of crushing heaviness and the bitter pills that came to previously define the band, this is a much more balls to the wall assault.
This is easily the punkiest of any Boris offering to date, the songs here, from the cover of Gudon's classic 'Fatal Error' to the inclusion of the legendary Katsumi of Outo and City Indian fame, No stands in fitting rebellion with a clear desire to spit in the face of the opposition no matter what the consequences. Albums like this one are a fitting reminder as to why Boris's genre on Metal Archives is listed as 'Various'. This record is a shot to the jaw coming straight out of left field. It is exciting, ambitious and definitely not what I think what anyone was really expecting to hear from these guys in 2020.

No is a crushing offering. It's exciting and over the top. It's full of passion and it's the perfect album for this time and place. Boris are truly one of a kind in their ability to craft magic and mastery out of any music, and this is simply the next step in that stunning legacy. This is a devastating record that shows that Boris can play punk just as well as they do sludge and eagerly showcases both. There are few albums that leave you scraping your jaw off the floor like this and I can't help but to be utterly mesmerized.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
