Japan's RUINS have extensive experience and a tireless
commitment! A furious barrage of explosive and intricately composed drum(s)
and bass (guitar), Ruins cover all stops between hardcore's hysteric intensity,
metal's pummeling dynamics and the confounding inscription of progressive
rock. No slack. No slop. Absolute masters of quick change, stop-start
tempoas and time-signatures, Ruins craft an unprecedented amalgam of originality,
all sung in a peculiar language of their own invention.
The first album to feature bassist Sasaki Hisashi, "Refusal Fossil (Special
Edition)" reissues the long out of print "Refusal Fossil" full length,
plus five additional tracks, all remixed and remastered by the band's
Yoshida Tatsuya (also of Koenjihyakkei, but you know that already!). Also
featuring a host of guest musicians from Japan avant scene (including
Yamamoto Seiichi of Boredoms), "Refusal Fossil (Special Edition)" boasts
an astounding twenty-five cuts in all: An hour-plus blast of zig-zag calisthenics!
