Getting its start in what passed for a hardcore scene in Tokyo in the early '90s, Boris channeled more difficult to classify bands like the Melvins (from whom the act took its name) and Sleep, as well as noise and psychedelia. As result, every Boris album is different, for better or worse, but always worth a listen. The act's 2005 album, Pink, was a bit of a breakthrough for the band, in terms of its popularity, critical praise and commercial success. The group has released numerous albums and collaborative records with the likes of the Cult's Ian Astbury, Fushitsusha's Keiji Haino, SunnO))) and fellow Japanese psych musician, Ghost's Michio Kurihara. Boris is heavy and dynamic but never boring.
