This is a new feature here on Figment News where I’ll highlight a real band that I wish I’d made up.  You know, as a fake band.  Make sense?  No?  That’s half the point.  Stop thinking and start rockin’!

I love the idea of two bands that are similar but different at the same time collaborating on an album together.  BXI is a perfect example.  Take one part Japanese experimental rock band that likes to combine drone metal, sludge metal, noise rock, psychedelic rock, ambient and pop, and add to them a quintessential hard rock howler and front man.  The Japanese experimental rock band?  None other than the heaviest band in Japan – Boris.  The howler?  Ian Astbury, lead singer of The Cult, Holy Barbarians and The Doors of the 21st Century.  Mix this concoction up and you’ve got one potent rock band. Enjoy, but remember to listen responsibly.
