Dronevil is the eighth studio album by the Japanese experimental band Boris. The release consists of a double album with the first LP, Drone, being quieter and falling more within the ambient/drone spectrum of Boris' work. The second LP, Evil, is more guitar oriented and could fall into the doom/metal spectrum of their work. Though the albums can be heard separately, the original intention is for both LPs to be played simultaneously through individual record players and speakers.

The album was originally released on double vinyl with the artwork for this release done by Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))).[1] Only 1000 copies were pressed of this album with 200 of those copies printed on grey vinyl and the remaining 800 copies pressed on black vinyl.[2]

The album was re-released through Inoxia Records in 2006 under the name Dronevil -Final- on (double) CD format, remastered by Jason Lescalleet. This version includes two additional tracks not found on the original release.

An alternate mix of "The Evil One Which Sobs"/"Interference Demon" appears on Heavy Metal Me, while a live version appears on Archive II.
