On Heavy Rocks, Boris mostly kick out the jams, making it one of the easiest entry points into the band's massive, fathoms-deep catalog.

Is there anything these guys can't do?

Heavy Rocks is the fourth studio album from Japanese experimental band Boris, released in April 2002. It was recorded at Bazooka Studio throughout July-September 2001.

This is the first of 3 albums to share the title Heavy Rocks, which the trio explore hard rock / heavy metal on each album.

Boris need no introduction at this point for me. They're easily one of my favourite bands of all-time with their ability to experiment so much with different genres ... read more

Boris's consistency throughout their discography is honestly terrifying and amazing, and their ability to create so many fucking heavy and killer riffs is beyond me. New band to latch onto for a month or two!

Heavy Rocks 2002 is Boris’ 4th studio release, and it’s a project Indeed. You get the usual prospects, loud, energetic, rough, and REALLY fun. It’s a great album if you wanna start out with Boris, because nothing too special is really going on, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad, far from it, it’s just pretty bare-bones in terms for Boris. Nothing new, but still pretty good.
