Formed in the early '90s as a four piece just-for-fun endeavor with the sonic template of influences like Melvins and Earth. By the time of its 1996 debut as a trio “Absolutego” (later released internationally in 2000), Boris had already hit its stride in creating unique ground-rattling heavy, melodic music. The group went on to release nearly 30 studio albums, as well as numerous collaborative albums -- including projects with Merzbow, Sunn O))), Ian Astbury -- EPs and singles on various labels throughout the world.
Boris is now in their 25th year as a band — 21 years in the classic trio lineup — and shows no signs of slowing down. They have always demolished expectations of what a band can do musically and aesthetically. the band’s trajectory as experimenters and innovators over subsequent releases becomes even clearer.
