Refusal Fossil (Special Edition)

Ruins: Refusal Fossil (Special Edition) (Skin Graft)
Label: Skin Graft    
Released in: USA    

"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 tempos 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)" resissues the long out of print "Refussal Fossil" full length, unquestionably the band's heaviest, rawest effort, plus five previously unreleased tracks, all remixed and remastered by the band's Yoshida Tatsuya (Koenjihyakkei). Also featuring a host of guest musicians from Japan avanst scene (including Yamamoto Seiichi of Boredoms), "Refusal Fossil" boasts twenty-five cuts in all: An hour-plus blast of zig-zag calisthenics!"-Skin Graft

"Fiendish and crazed, Ruins explore string-popping ideas only to degenerate into complex whirlpools of distortion, then regroup into a new version of their original idea with surprising grace. Ruins grow on you like a cancerous cell, and are killer." - CMJ
