Though typically placed under the wide-reaching umbrella of heavy metal, Boris tries its best to make its eclectic music void of easy pigeonholing. Upon its formation in Japan in 1992, the band was heavily inspired by experimental metal pioneers such as The Melvins, a band whose song provided Boris with its name. The group's two guitarists, Takeshi and Wata, are metal shredders in the classic vein, capable of adapting to seemingly any incarnation of the genre, from doom and sludge, to speed and thrash. It's the sonic diversions, however, that make Boris an always noteworthy band to follow. The three-piece will often devote sections, songs or whole albums to distinctly un-metal experiments in psychedelic rock, avant-garde noise or ethereal ambient music. The ability to indulge in its disparate wealth of influences while retaining an overall identity all its own has helped Boris earn the cult metal status it no doubt deserves.
