BAPTISM, DESTRUCTION, REBIRTH, REDEMPTION: Boris

Metro Chicago, IL. 08-14-2016

Touring the US to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their classic album Pink, the Japanese psych samurai took over Chicago’s Metro venue on August 14.

BY MARTY PEREZ

Most appropriately, the Boris landed in Chicago on a Sunday.

The trio effortlessly served the faithful an aural communion; the dark baptism of destruction and fire with the light rebirth of joy and redemption. A curious walkway from the sermon, a feeling of being rejuvenated for the waiting week ahead.

 I wonder if the departing congregation wasn’t also, feeling thankful; to be leaving with only having their vital organs moved, and not reduced to jelly.

Note: the Pink album is reissued, along with a bonus disc, on the Sargent House label.
