About this item
Relapse Records presents brand new record ‘2R0I2P0’, the new collaborative album from Boris and Merzbow. The 10-track album showcases every bit of the excitement and pulse-pounding rock and metal heard throughout the inimitable, expansive Boris catalogue, as it meets the signature harsh noise and soundscapes of the equally prolific Merzbow. This is far from their first collaboration – beginning with ‘Megatone’ in 2002 and extending to 2016’s ‘Gensho’, the two artists have worked together on eight album projects. An album that is at once familiar and unique for its time, melodic and harsh in equal parts, 2R0I2P0 aims to find sonic harmony. After all, 2R0I2P0 translates to ‘Twenty Twenty R.I.P’. "This year was a period of trial for everyone in the world," Boris comments. "This work becomes a monument to the requiem of the previous era. From here, a new world begins again."
For fans of artists such as Sunn O))), Melvins, Earth, Fushitsusha, Boredoms, Sleep, Full Of Hell.
Barry says: Having been at the forefront of some of the most punishing and deep collaborative avant output of all time, Boris pair once again with Japanese noise-merchant Merzbow to GREAT effect. Stunningly rich and immersive.
