Boris are known to regularly switch musical genres between albums. Drawing from a wide variety of musical styles including psychedelic rock, punk, sludge, doom, minimalism, drone and more. Boris takes its name from a song on Bullhead by Melvins.

Amplifier Worship came out on the Mangrove label in 1998 and was also unavailable in the U.S. for several years; San Francisco’s Man’s Ruin had planned to reissue it in the fall of 2001, but the label folded before that could happen. Excluding the "one-long-song" albums, this is one of only two Boris full-lengths to have vocals on every song (the other being 2008's Smile). "Vomitself" was written and laid down in a different session from the other four songs. / Wikipedia
