From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Absolutego is the debut album by Japanese experimental doom band Boris. It
was released in 1996 by Fangs Anal Satan. This album shows a primitive sort of                       Absolutego
inspiration from the Melvins. Excluding the Merzbow collaboration Sun Baked
Snow Cave, it's the only "one-long-song" Boris album that isn't broken down into
multiple parts. Notably, up until Amplifier Worship, Takeshi had been called
"Ohtani." Whether that may be a nickname or his surname (in recent years,
Atsuo's last name has been revealed to be Mizuno) is unknown. In 2001 Southern
Lord Records re-released this album as Absolutego+ and included a bonus track.
