5.0 classicSkapalPes | December 9th 14

This is a tenth album by Japanese band Ruins, their last as a bass and drums duo. This band always makes me happy, what is sometimes a welcome change after all that serious and depressive metal music I am listening for most of time :-).
I can still remember their concert maybe 20 years ago on one small underground festival in Brno, CZ... you should see the people... nobody really knew them but after few quick songs there were nobody who would not have a big smile on his face and a good, good time. Their enthusiasm, precision and craziness got everybody, me included. I don`t know their entire discography, but this one works perfect for me... two virtuos musicians are ruining all common rules in making music and I can feel they still have a big joy of creating it in their very special way. People try to put them in some box like experimental rock, math rock, zeuhl, noise rock, whatever (I can add some more: crazy fusion or jazz punk)... the fact is they are just extraordinary and surely not for everyone. Anarchy supported by big discipline and perfection ... non-sense? I don`t think so...
Do you know they wanted to start a band as a trio back in 1985, but guitarist didn`t come to their first rehearsal, so they made a band without him :-) ?
P.S.: They even have Black Sabbath medley and Mahavishnu Orchestra medley at the end of the album... you should really check it out!
