Boris - To Release Collaboration Album With Merzbow

Official statement from the label:

Relapse Records presents 2R0I2P0, the brand new collaborative album from Japanese acts 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 catalog, as it meets the signature harsh noise and soundscapes of the equally prolific Merzbow.

"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."

2R0I2P0 tracklist:

01. Away From You
02. To The Beach
03. Coma
04. Love
05. Absolutego
06. Journey
07. Uzume
08. Evol
09. Boris
10. Shadow Of Skull

A collaboration of this magnitude and they go with that album title 🤦‍♂️

Based on their last collab I'd suspect this will be more noise oriented than anything, and that's cool, but it really would be more intriguing to see stoner doom Boris merged with Merzbow's soundscapes... like more of a noise doom type approach or something.

Who knows how this will turn out given just how versatile both artists are. Excited either way.
