If you have the endurance to sit through its full 62 minutes, Boris with Merzbow's third release, 2005's Sun Baked Snow Cave, will certainly take you on a sonic journey. Comprised of a single instrumental track (which shares the same name as the album title), it all starts out about as minimalist as you can possibly get — single notes plucked on a nylon string guitar. But eventually, the piece begins picking up some steam, by incorporating other sounds, including buzzing insects and various electronic scrapes, all while the volume increases as well, before eventually ending in silence. The press release states that "Sun Baked Snow Cave may be both perfect for Rob Zombie horror movies, and for a small baby's gentle night sleep." Hard to sum it up better. Sun Baked Snow Cave is recommended to fans of the modern-day experimental ambient genre.
One of the best drone pieces ever. The best Boris has ever done.
