Label: Third Man
Akuma No Uta, released in 2003, will see a reissue out October 4, 2019 on Third Man Records. Akuma No Uta has been recognized as one of the top 200 releases from the 2000s by Pitchfork and one of BORIS’ most commercially successful releases of their full-length discography. The reissue will feature the original US cover art, which is a triumphant tribute to NICK DRAKEe’s Bryter Layter. BORIS even pinpoints the length of Akuma No Uta to 39 minutes, the same length as DRAKE's classic. Akuma No Uta is a journey through wild drop tunings and fuzz. The introduction to the album slowly builds into noise, settling like the aftermath of an avalanche as it comes to a close. Although mixing many different genres, from drone metal to shoegaze to punk, Akuma No Uta maintains a strong cohesive experiential undercurrent.
