MetalMatters: The Best Metal Albums of December 2020

Post-rock legends Jesu return after seven years, chameleonic rockers Boris collaborate once more with noise fiend Merzbow, and Dan Barrett unleashes Black Wing's sophomore record.

Recent
Music

Boris with Merzbow: Gensho

Pushing the virtue of patience to full capacity, Boris and Merzbow combine their demented artistry to be listened to both separately and simultaneously.

Music

Boris: Noise

This is probably Boris’ most accessible record to date and the overall feeling is that it has, once again, managed to mould its inspiration while remaining quintessentially "Boris".

Music

Boris: Präparat

While Boris could be playing in a whole other genre in their future releases, Präparat, a highly limited vinyl-only release, is a concise, well-structured LP that brings a little bit of everything that makes this band great to the table.

Music

Ensemble Pearl: Ensemble Pearl

Sunn O))) make towering, thunderous metal concerned more with volume than detail. But guitarist Stephen O’Malley’s newest project, Ensemble Pearl, is all about the little things.

Music

Thomas Brinkmann & Oren Ambarchi: The Mortimer Trap

Having awakened your senses at the same time it tests your patience, The Mortimer Trap leaves you gratefully spent.

Music

Boris and Merzbow: Klatter

Despite the fact that Klatter comes off as a fairly low-key album for fans of either Boris or Merzbow, it is also a surprisingly rich one.

Reviews

Boris + Torche + Clouds

Boris’ show ended just as it had begun, with the beating of a gong.

Boris with Michio Kurihara: Rainbow

Sick of Boris yet? Hopefully not, because you definitely don't want to miss out on this one.
