BORIS Slows Down To A Crawl With "Memento Mori"

Seriously, this is Sunn O)))-esque slow.

Seriously, this is Sunn O)))-esque slow.

Boris, the band from Japan whose style can never quite be defined, and who is constantly putting out new material, will be dropping a new album called Dear on July 14 via Sargeant House.

If you're expecting any sort of mid-paced rock or psychedelic insanity, you're going to be either pleasantly surprised or very disappointed – this song is slow. The vocal harmonies are great, and the atmosphere is really well done, but man is this song slow.
