Japanese experimental metal trio Boris and noise legend Merzbow have completed work on a new collaborative album, their first together since 2011’s Klatter. The new record will be titled Gensho and will be released in February 2016 via Relapse Records. The new album will feature 150 minutes of new music spread across two discs. Both bands have contributed the same amount of music, with both discs intended to be played at the same time (or can be enjoyed separately, of course) on different speakers at varying volumes so the listener can experience their own “gensho/phenomenon” every time. Boris contributed reworkings of previous material, while Merzbow contributed new songs.
More information, including artwork and track listing, will be released in the coming months.
