Album: Absolutego+ ]Special Low Frequency Version[
Origin: Japan (Tokyo)
Genre: Drone, Doom, Noise, Experimental
This post is dedicated to my cat Boris, who died last sunday at the age of 17. That's why I deemed it fitting to post this monolith of a record as a tribute to my wonderful feline friend. Enjoy...
(I'd review this amazing record myself but I'm not really in the mood, and it has been a while since I posted something. I also decided to use the Southern Lord artwork because this is the southern lord version, but you can find the original artwork over at stonerobixxx)
"OK, the glorious beginning (LP-wise, anyway). Earth`s Dylan Carson called this album the "sound of two slugs fucking," and he ain`t wrong. Not wholly unlike Electric Wizard`s "Supercoven" (the track, not the album), although it`s broken up a bit more structurally. While the frequencies are quite powerful, this is a low fi recording, particularly in relation to the drum sound. They`re really wearing their Melvins influence on their sleeve, although the super dry sense of humor isn`t in evidence (at least, not according to Western ears. If my Japanese was better, I might have a different take). 65 minutes of grunt and duh.
OK, that`s the first (title) track, which on the 2000 Southern Lord reissue is followed by "Dronevil" (not to be confused with the 2000 LP of the same name). This is maliciously ambient, kind of like the sound of a killer robot`s mind. A six-minute comedown." (stonerrock.com)Boris - Absolutego
