Boris - Amplifier Worship (1998)

One of my absolute favorite records of any genre. Amplifier Worship is fucking perfect -- from the slow-burning, layered riff-drone à la Lysol intro, to the ridiculously heavy, pissed-off sludge that follows, to the careening, percussion-heavy, hypno-hardcore midsection, through to the mournful post-rock denouement and, finally, the cleansing, minimal filth of "Vomitself".

Track listing:
1. Huge
2. Ganbou-Ki
3. Hama
4. Kuruimizu
5. Vomitself

Frogs love to eat flies, the Devil's name, Beelzebub, lord of the flies. Evil spirits love to spiritually feed upon those whom Beelzebub rule.

    1. Yes! People always say that their best record is either Flood or Pink -- both excellent albums of course -- but IMO they never topped this one.
