FTRK #10 = "Hama" by Boris

Hama - Boris (1998) (Download .mp3)

Boris is a metal band of many subgenres, ranging from Doom Metal to Stoner Rock. I've even seen them live playing a sort of ambient metal, with their signature loud sound. Hama could be considered the most mean song in their arsenal. It begins with several ominous clicks, before grinding into the sloshy guitar riff, and after a rhythmic drum solo, a repeat of the guitar with a darker quality. Their voices sound legitimate in comparison to many other metal groups, and the song shows it. Better yet, they hail from Japan. Among the rest of the badass tracks on Amplifier Worship, Hama is certainly worth listening to.
