Flood is the third album by Japanese band Boris. Like the previous albums, it stays lengthy and massively slow, but in addition to sludge influences such as the Melvins and Sleep, there are undertones of psychedelic rock. Upon its initial release the album did not garner many reviews (both positive nor negative) however, it has become a cult classic among fans and was played in its entirety every night of their 2013 US-based "Residency Tour" [2]
