Download- Heavy Rocks II (2011) Sargent House

Frantic fuzz rock from japanese band Boris! Heavy Rocks II is their 16th album, they usually come up with three albums a year, and as the title suggests it’s a bit heavier than the stuff from their first era. If their early albums were based on doom and drone influences this has more of a punk-ish stoner rock approach. The band themselves has stated that with this release they’re trying to recapture that heavy sound they had on the album ”Heavy Rocks”, thus naming it Heavy Rocks II. Not sure if they succeded though, I haven’t listened to Heavy Rocks, but I can say that this is the best stuff I’ve heard with Boris so far and when I saw them live in Stockholm the played songs mainly from this album.
